I've been doing a little dance all day since the account link for my ING account finally went through and I could start doing all kinds of fun setting up of financial crap :) I officially opened my emergency fund! Yay! AND, I set up a joint chequing account so we can finally start to get ourselves out from under the crushing thumb of our stupid mortgage line of credit account. The day we tell National Bank of Canada to take a flying leap will be the 3rd happiest day of my life (after my wedding and the birth of my daughters, of course)
It is such a relief to take the first step and to know that it's only the beginning of something super exciting for us!
