Yup, I did. We had pizza, from the pizza parlour. I ate several pieces, and I am totally ok with that. I know I will be back on plan tomorrow...my husband and I had some serious celebrating to do tonight, and were both too blown away to make supper.
My father in law's father passed away about a year ago (I didn't know him), and we got a phone call today from my father in law. He has decided that when the estate is settled, sometime within the next 2-3 months, that he is going to pay off our mortgage.
I am 36, my husband is 34, and while our house is just a older mobile on our own land, we only bought it a year ago, and we will be mortgage free in the next 3 months. We are a lower income family, my husband is the only one who works, so this is HUGE HUGE for us. Neither of us can believe it!!! It will change our lives in ways we can only imagine!!
So yeah, we had a celebration supper....but my father in law has made it VERY clear that he's extremely proud of the changes I have made in my life. I quit smoking in September, and am now working towards a healthier lifestyle, so I feel compelled to work harder to prove to him that the money he is going to be saving us in mortgage is going to be well spent, on healthier living. I want to prove to him that he made a good choice!
We are totally over the moon right now.
