Zero

Yesterday, I hit a bit of a milestone.

My tax returns came in sometime in the last couple weeks, and I've got a paycheck coming on Friday. (We get paid biweekly, so that makes April a three-paycheck month if I wait until this weekend to pay bills.)

With a bunch of extra money sitting in the bank account, I decided to do a little adding-up, and having determined that it all worked out, I made an extra-large payment on the credit card, leaving us with a final balance of...

$0.00.

Woo-hoo! We are finally, FINALLY caught up! It's been... a long while.

There will be non-zero balances in the future, I'm sure. (Among other things, the power connection on my laptop has gotten really finicky, so I think that means it's time to replace it sooner, rather than later.) But for now, I'm just going to be excited about being in the black, even if it is only a transient phenomenon.
