Did you know that you can buy pre-made Muddy Buddies at the gas station?
Let's just say this is a marvelous and horrible thing. I've already bought more than one package.
Change of subject, we're thinking of buying a truck so that we can sell our Jeep. Doing this would eliminate the car payment because we can pay cash for the truck. Great idea right? We thought so too. The only problem is that car shopping is a lot harder than we thought it was going to be. The husband is looking at a truck right now. He called me, we chit chatted, tried to figure out what to do, then he decided he should call his dad. I liked that idea.
It's intimidating spending that much money even though we know it'll be good and it'll help us get out of the car payment debt. We've been working on this for the past few years ever since it went all downhill after we got married. Eric had a great job, we were saving lots of money, and then he got laid off. To make things worse, his employer wasn't taking taxes out of his paycheck. So not only was I working only part-time and Eric unemployed, we then got hit with a major tax bill.
We've been slowly crawling out of the hole ever since. We had to use the majority of our savings to keep up on bills and such but I got a better full-time job and Eric has been able to move up through his job. It's still not perfect, but we're working it out together and I love that. I love that we've had this experience now in our lives and have been able to learn from it.
So, we might have a new (well, new to us) truck tonight.
Or, we might continue the hunt.
