the silver lining

so the car damage may be worse than we expected. initial assessment is that the engine is no longer good. this means we can either continue to pour money into it, o write it off, selling it for parts. while the thought of being a one-car famly doesn't sound so appealing at times, i know it's doable. my parents relied on one car for two years, until they were in a financially sound place. i remember driving my dad to work, picking him up, i'm sure it was a hassle, but at the same time, it wasn't so bad. given how we want to watch our expenses, having one vehicle would definitely cut back on how much gas we consume each month-or at least cut it by 30%, if not more. time will tell.

We did the one car thing for about 5 months after R was born. It wasn't fun, but we made it work. Sometimes you just gotta do it. I'm sorry about your car. Why does it always end up costing more money than it was orginally supposed to. Ahhh life.
