Default Our FPU Goals

DH and I are on week 4 of our FPU class. Our class is huge! It is such an interesting group of people. There are some people that are in a seriously tough situations. There are alot of tears at our classes. So many people just overwhelmed by having lived beyond their means and feeling like they can't get out of it. Oh the stories are just heartbreaking.

We talked about the debt snowball last night and DH was very excited about it.

It's just so hard for us right now. We lost 1/2 of our income from lobstering because the price of lobsters tanked this summer/fall. Then I would say we've had 1/4 of the snow storms we usually do. DH plows so that is another $12,000 loss.
It's killing us... DH is picking up work wherever he can, but sometimes it just feels like we can't win!

I'm hoping things turn around and our goal is to be debt free by March 2012. That would include paying off DH's massive truck loan, which is technically a business expense, but we need to pay it off. I just wish we could keep going to class every week until then, it's been so good for us so far.

Sorry so long
