I just wanted to push out a super quick update before going to bed. It’s been a long couple of days and they are taking a toll on me. I’m even more stressed out since the the car died because I’m very preoccupied with replacing it and I’m kinda under the gun.
I’ve spent the last 48 hours car shopping and it’s incredibly stressful.
I’m happy to share that I’ve secured financing as of noon today. The paperwork went through and I’m able to move forward. That’s hugely positive but I’m dealing with one final obstacle and that’s the down payment.
I’ve narrowed things down to three or four cars and feel really good about it because I did it on my own. It’s frustrating being held up by less than a $1000, but I’m working on it.
The kids are worried because we don’t have a car but I just keep reminding them it will all be okay.
It’s been pretty crazy here and I’ve been struggling. I’m behind on writing and that bothers me. I’m going to bed while I can and I’ll pick up the search again in the morning. I need to get this done ASAP.
See, I told you it would be a quick update.. ☺
I can’t imagine being without a vehicle, and don’t realize how much of a lifeline it is until you are. How are you getting the boys back and forth to school and everything else that needs to be done?
Cindy, it pretty much sucks. Right now, my parents are helping get the boys back and forth to school. They’re happy to do it but it’s not fair to them and I don’t like having rely on others.
We also have doctors appointments out of town that are having to be rescheduled as well.
The good news is that I’m close. I got financing approved and I’m only short on the $1000 down-payment. It’s a lot but I’ve overcome all the other obstacles, no reason to think I won’t figure this one out as well. ☺
Good luck, Rob! It sounds like you’re going to get this done.
Thanks Becky… ☺ ♥
