Here’s a milestone in my life. I’ve been in debt since I was 16. Today, I paid off a credit card that has carried a balance for 2 years. It was the highest interest rate of all of my cards. *big grin* 5 more to go. =) elle

I need your toes!

I was a newbie teacher, and he was the outspoken English teacher across the hall. We were both new to the school. Our frequent and lengthy conversations in my classroom interested the students, who seemed to enjoy pretending to be embarrased if they caught us together during lunch.
