Are We There Yet?

This is one crazy journey.

Are we there yet? March 24, 2006

Filed under: New Truck — taramayrn @ 1:57 pm

Anyways my husband’s car needs some major repairs that will cost $2000 – yikes!! So we’ve decided that it isn’t worth it to fix the car and so we have decided to sell it and buy a new one.

He calls me this afternoon from the Toyota dealership…lol. He’s out test driving a Tacoma and the dealership is looking over his car to see how much they will give him on a trade in. So they’ll give him $4000 for his car, which is great since we was going to ask $4500 if he sold it himself.

So he comes over with this truck. It’s very nice, very tempting, all shiny and new – and fact of the matter is we do need it. I know we need it, but why is it so scary? Why am I freaking out?! We will be able to make the payments – no doubt of that. We need it – no doubt of that. Why?? This isn’t our first major purchase. We own our own home and bring home relatively decent pay cheques and we live a comfortable life. We aren’t rich but we don’t want for anything either. That’s why I’m struggling with my feelings of fear.

Why? For the first time we had to consider if a car seat would fit in the back for our future children. BTW – no we aren’t pregnant and won’t be for a year and a half.
Maybe it’s that this truck is just the starting point for the rest of our lives…
