I like money more!

Huh, the most interesting thing happened to me yesterday.  My moms neighbor went into the nursing home and his daughter is selling his house for cheap.  Granted it is a mobile home, but it's in a gated community and the rent is only like $500.00 a month.  A couple years ago my mom bought hers practically gutted for 13k which we spent everyday for a month straight redoing it.  The lady wants to let this go for 7k.  So since we let our house go and were renting for almost $1300.00 a month, this seems like a win win at the moment.  Don't get me wrong, we moved from a tiny house to a 1700 square foot house.  So moving back to a smaller (1500 sq. ft.) house will be interesting.  I'm sad about losing the den which we made into the kid TV room, but cutting my payment in half is better.  Plus my hubby without a garage will be even more interesting.  But once again half the payment.  I come to the understanding I like money more and we will make it work.  This will give us a chance have money to do the stuff we want to do whenever we want to do it.  I wont have to worry if my hubby is out of work for a couple weeks because works slow.  Hell I don't care if he croaked, I can pay for it myself!  And having that piece of mind makes me happy.  I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that everything works out. This has actually been a really good year for us, and I got one more truck payment, and 4 more quad payments and I own the shit free and clear.  After having some really hard times the last 7 years especially with all the house bullshit, the best thing we ever did was let that house go.  We have finally dug ourselves out of that hole and I'll be damned if I'm ever going to let that shit happen again.  Lesson Learned!
