      I’m with you there! I would LOVE to be debt-free. Well, I pretty much

      am, except for the mortgage. I would love to own my home outright. It

      strikes terror in my heart to think of having a car payment again (my

      car is 10 years old now), but I’ll deal with it when the time comes.

      Like you, I want to get to the point where I can work at a job that I

      enjoy, not one that I need. I want financial freedom and flexibility.

      My jobs never give me as much time off as I’d like! I want more time.

      Like almost everyone else a few years ago, I had a couple of hundred

      thousand dollars of equity in my house during the height of the housing

      boom, but after the housing market crashed, I have little equity.

      At the height of the boom, one of my carpoolers sold her house and

      built a brand-new 4,000 sq. ft. house down south and paid cash for it

      and even had enough left over to buy her son a car. They’re mortgage-

      free for the rest of their lives. She and her husband took a 3-month

      break to settle into the house, then looked for jobs.

      It’s fun talking about money and goals. Most people I know are robots

      and don’t talk seriously about a way out. So, I’m happy to be here.
