We’re in the same boat

I paid off Lowe’s and SS in December thinking we’d be increasing our small snowball by a bunch. Instead it is all going to the SS tax reinstatement. I consoled myself by saying “and how would we have covered that tax if we hadn’t paid off those debts?” At least you and I had the money to absorb the hike. Many, many families do not. You aren’t derailed forever. You have came a long, long ways. And now you have your dh on board to help. You’ll find it will all work out. Just have some patience and stick with the plan.
