Car update.....haven't I said this a few too many times??

How is it that I wrote 6 bills out last night.....remember those little pieces of paper called checks....and of it all...only $100 was debt?  But once I added in the interest that we have accumulated, we actually went backward by $100.  I hate being at a stand still right now.  VERY FRUSTRATING.

Car update....G-man wants to fix the car to the tune of $2500.  He feels it is the quickest and easiest solution....which it is.  But is it the right solution?  I know he is out of town right now, and it is an added complication.  But I found what I think is a perfect truck, for only $200 more.  I really think we should explore that option more.  He just wants it over and done with.  I am convinced in a few months, something else will go, and then we will just be out the money. 

I really need to get EVERYTHING back on track....our finance, our life together......this is so so hard.  One of the hardest things I have ever done.


  1. We just went through the whole car thing. Twice. Both of our cars bit the dust in a motor, the other a transmission. Both were 1996 vehicles so there was no question about whether to fix or not. I'm not sure what we would have done in your situation.

    I can't imagine how stressful this is for you with the relationship stress on top of it all. Take it one day at a time and know that you are being wrapped in prayer.

  2. hang in there. you've come this far.

    i agree you should explore other options. 2500 to fix a car is pretty steep to me.

  3. Too late. He decided he didn't want to deal with the hassle and ok'ed the repair. I told him if his car breaks down again, he is screwed. He said fine.

  4. So, G-Man is back to his old ways again. Just love his way of communicating with you regarding major issues. NOT!

  5. car problems are a real pain & $2500 is a lot, Lets hope it stays fixed.
