When J and I bought this house, we got a fifteen-year mortgage. That was in 2001, and the end of the mortgage was in sight this January. When we were staring at months of health problems and no work for me, we made a decision. We took some of our savings and paid off the mortgage early.
I never expected this.
I mean, I did expect it. It was the plan all along, to pay off the mortgage. But now it’s actually *done*.
We own our home.
How very odd.
