    That is good news, Mike.

    Make sure the area for the trains is roped off BEFORE the little lady makes plans for it. :)

    Too late. She has already planned on the 3rd bedroom for the little one we are expecting in March.

    A little good news/a little bad I guess! ;)

    It must make you feel great saving money but having a home of your own is priceless

    mortgage

    Micheal that is great news, I would like to pass on a little info that I wish someone would have told me years ago. Since you said that your paying $75 less per month once things get a little more settled take that "extra money" and put it towards your principal and you'll have your house paid off years before the scheduled due date. Just make sure that your mortgage company allows this type of payoff. Good luck with the house and the expected blessed event (new train room) and oh by the way hope your baby is healthy and happy as well.Pat:D :D ;)

    Nice work Mike.
    It took us 25 years and 2 moves, but we now have ours paid off (as of a year ago.)
    Put the $75 aside somewhere. Of course, you'll be spending it on all the little things you didn't know you needed.

    Congratulations Michael. When the kid gets a few years older, be sure to let it know you gave up your train room for it. Ah, maybe it would be better if you said nothing and keep pease in the family.
    You can save the $75 to pay the taxes and insureance. For some reason I sound like a party pooper tonight.
