It’s kind of funny that the Latin meaning of mortgage is death pledge.  A mortgage often feels like it’ll be the death of home owners everywhere.


I actually kind of like paying off my mortgage.  It feels like accomplishment, which is one reason I have a goal to pay it off early, though some people advise against it.


Here’s what I currently owe:



I’m 4 months ahead of schedule on a 20 year loan. Woohoo!  So I should be finished paying my mortgage on 8/1/2032.  Let’s see how far ahead I can get in the coming months!


Peace out (and in),
