Okay, I am like a little kid. We have had the same two vehicles for so long and they are falling apart. We are so grateful to have not had a payment for so many years. That saved us a few times when my husband was unemployed.
Did I tell you that my husband is a software engineer?
Now back to why I am like a little kid.
Well, my husband's brother is getting a new Ford truck, so we have been working out the details on how to purchase his truck, which is a beautiful one...okay, most vehicles that have not been driven into the ground like ours are beautiful.
We have had so many life changing events that have cost a lot of money over the past 13-20 years that we have been so grateful NOT to have a car payment and to only have to fix things. However, our poor, old vehicles are on their last, last leg. They have been well loved and will continue to be, but likely used closer to home.
Being responsible for a payment is nerve racking. Things will be tight, but reliable transportation is something that is necessary.
Too bad it didn't happen in time to be able to go to the reunion in Idaho. We will have missed fun with my side of the family. However, it was going to cost too much to do that trip anyway and be responsible for things that we need here at home. Being an adult is hard. Responsibility and choosing what to do and what not to do, knowing that there are other people involved that have feelings on the subject, is hard.
However, for our little tribe of four, this is a monumental day! I am so giddy. I am so looking forward to getting in our new wheels. Of course, our two boys will not be allowed to drive it. They can use the other two vehicles at this stage;)
