Merry Christmas  
OK, so last night at about 1:15am I checked my checking account and saw my Christmas bonus in there.

I then dealt with finances for a little while, because it allowed me to. And I got a credit card paid off (one of the two that have charges not owed by me), and I called and cancelled the card.

Hooray! $5000 less debt I can get into!

Oh, and I realized that I'm not completely credit card debt free. There's one card left with stuff on it from me. But it's at 0% interest until August, and it's got steady amounts automatically being debited from my checking account so it never goes above that percentage because it'll be paid off. So I don't count that one, really. It'll just be a nice bonus in August when suddenly I have $235 more income per month. I'll think of it as a raise. :-)

Downside: Didn't get to sleep until 2ish. MAN, I'm tired....

Very cool. Congratulations!

For all the talk of Christmas bonuses, nobody went out of their way to hand me one. That's not to say a check wasn't written - I have no idea. They might have distributed those while I was sick at home. But Christmas eve, when I came back in to work, no one seemed to feel it worth mentioning. Perhaps they'll notice it sitting on their desk later, and life will be good for a moment. I'm not counting on it, though.
