Default Dh is getting a raise!!!!

This summer has been such a roller coaster! DH lost his teaching job at the end of last year due to budget cuts, and we were hoping he'd be able to get a job in a univeristy so I could quit work, and that didn't happen, but he did end up back in the same school district working for the senior high! He already gets an automatic raise since he has another year of experience, plus he gets a raise for finishing his masters degree. And he was asked by the principal to specifically sponsor an activity that has a $200/mo stipend! (the principal is a former teacher of mine, and this activity has the highest stpiend, so this is a big honor/favor) Plus last year Kim got childcare through teh school syatem so there was $120/mo taken out of his checks automatically that won't be happening this year. So all together he's looking at about a $ raise!!!

We were really worried that we weren't going to be able to do much with our debt until after Christmas since we are on such a tight budget, but now we should be able to at least make a dent! We have several really small credit cards and we'd like to pay them off one each month and cancel them! I'm just so excited1 If we can get the debt gone (which we really don't have as much as the average household) we can still start thinking about me quitting my job to have another baby!
