Car Shopping.... *sigh*

I guess I've put it off long enough.
Back in May, J had an accident and our second vehicle, the Ford Ranger (which was awesome!) was declared totaled. Thankfully, Geico paid off what was still owed and we no longer had another car payment. Yay! But now we are down to one vehicle. Boo!

We've been surviving pretty good so far, although there have been some frustrating moments. Back in July I started an earlier shift, 7-4 which was ok. J hated getting up early, but at least he wasn't getting to work at noon when I worked mid-shift. I on the other hand, would have to wait until 5 or 6pm until J would pick me up. Not good.

Now, since I started my new position, I'm back to a mid shift, and I'm being dropped off at work at 9:30am when my shift starts at 11:30am.
Again, not good.

So, we bit the bullet and applied for another auto loan. So we'll be out shopping today to find another vehicle. We definitely want 4x4, and I'm a little partial to Ford, so we're looking for an Used Explorer. I've found a couple, so we'll check them out.

I guess the only good thing about this year, is that it will all be paid off by the end of the year with J's deployment :) Again...yay and boo lol

you have to do what you have to do & knowing that you will pay it off before deployment is pretty good.... good with Ford!! We are a ford family as well :)
