End o' Month Scraps

November 30th, 2013 at 01:37 am

I'm not quite at the 7% benchmark for debt repayment for HELOC and Mortgage, but could meet it by December 16. Wondering if I should throw an extra payment at the HELOC so I can have $100,000 principal payment achieved on the house by the end of the year. I'll also have the 20% mortgage paid off milestone reached too. Should I see what percentage of my original 30-year mortgage would be paid off by now?
Update: On March 1 2014 I'd have a balance of $134,518. I'd have paid $162657 in interest at that point.

Not in a big rush to have primary mortgage balance drop to five digits: give it five weeks and it will. Disheartening to see a leftside digit drop practically fifteen years after buying the house.

About planning for the future: the elderly couple down the street adopted a Siamese kitten. I told them how long Siamese cats live on average: they are the Okinawans of the cat world. You should have seen their faces. We should swap cats: they can have our two 14-year-old cats in exchange for the kitten.

Pretty sure I'm not going to win any of this year's Dead Pools. I've lost one sheet to the annihilated Hard Drive, another DP is shutting down because its admins are overcome by the scope of work (72 lists, 40-person lists) updating.

Still ambivalent about debt group attendance. I believe I am the only one counting her car loan and her mortgage, and I am grumpy about attending and listening to how others' parents help them with this and that. "To lose one parent is misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness." It's like listening to hedge fund managers complain about how their penthouse strata council won't let them put in fountains, or how their Cayennes have scratches.

    I would be grumpy too if I had to listen the parents helping and the poor little rich folks and their penthouses!
