And it is hard.
It's especially hard when you are saving up for one minivan to get fixed and the other one breaks (stupid transmissions...) and then you are stuck. You and your spouse have jobs...but no reliable transportation.
So you look in the classifieds...Craigslist is awesome for such things...you find a car in your price range..haha! 500 bucks is about you can afford right now...
You drive out to take a look at the car.
It's a 1981 Ford Fairmont. Straight 6 engine.
Take a look.
So yeah, it's NOT the prettiest car in the world. Everyone else around me is driving cars made in the 90's and 2000's....But I don't have any car payments. And this car will take my husband to work and back...about an hour each way...until we can get one of our minivans fixed.
It will do for now.
Back in the day it was America's best selling model.
So this might last us 10 years or 6 months...who knows?
But at least it is running in the present and that's all that matters.
So back to my point....you know the point about it is easier to be a kid. You might have problems and worries as a kid but it does not compare to that of an adult.
Once bills like cars. car insurance, groceries, clothing find, GAS, entertainment, work, vacation, GAS, rent enter the picture life sometimes life gets tricky.
But when life gets tricky and stressful, pop in a vitamin B complex and a smile (and some chocolate) and relax and enjoy the adventure. It's not worth stressing yourself out over.
So if you see me on the road and you are a little embarrassed when I *wave* to you from the "yellow submarine" wave back at me...hey, it's a temporary fix. I'll be driving my van soon enough....
Love you peeps!
|I'm thinking the side of the car needs a sign. Something like One Cluttered Brain.|
and we need to paint it purple.
Then I'd be styling.
Red flames on the side might be nice as well.
Hope you all have a super weekend this weekend. I am going to try have a super weekend as well.
*At least I will be able to drive to the store and get milk with a vehicle.*
