It's been a huge relief to be out of debt for the past 6 months. A HUGE relief. Of course, there are drawbacks. Last night we had a big trip to Costco and in the parking lot Marshmallow (the '92 Geo Metro) wouldn't start. We've had the problem before, but my father-in-law fiddled with the starter and its been working every since. Fortunately our wonderful basement neighbor was watching the kids, so we weren't too inconvenienced. John went to call the tow truck (no cell phone right now either - we had a pay-as-you-go phone but haven't felt the need to renew it), and as soon as he came back and tried it, it started!
