Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.

Survey: Mortgage or Credit Card?

If you have to choose between paying your mortgage and paying your credit card, which do you pay? Have you ever had to make this choice?

Answer in the comments, please.

Mortgage, HANDS DOWN! Why on EARTH would I pay a credit card before I would pay for the roof over my head? Yeah the credit card companies can spit and yell, call me non stop, whatever. So what! My home is far more important. If I have a home I can live to fight another day and get out of my mess much easier.

Clarification: This survey question is the result of a conversation I had with a friend. She related to me that she had encountered people who were advocating the non-payment of mortgages in favor of keeping space available on a credit card for cash flow purposes if money was tight.

I DO NOT advocate this practice. I agree with Anonymous. Pay the mortgage and live to fight another day on the credit card.
