Taking a break from paying down the mortgage
My husband and I are going on a vacation this spring. I had already set aside the money to do so, but I found out today it's going to cost us more than we thought. So unfortunately, I'm going to have to stop paying down the mortgage and just pay the minimums until I have saved enough for the vacation. There is a part of me that wants to be "nerdy" like Dave Ramsey would probably advise, and not go on the trip and then put all that money towards the mortgage. But, on the other hand, it's a pretty big vacation and we've been looking forward to it for months. So despite it coming in way over budget, we're still excited to go.
