out with the old...

i have a new house and i am happy. but now the old things are breaking.

like my tv.

and my CAR!

it keeps getting hot and we keep putting more water in it. there is never a puddle under it, the water from the radiator just disappears! i went on youtube and found some possible solutions- hopefully it's not a blown headgasket. we will be trying these this week-end. i went to a car dealership this afternoon after days of negotiating with them on the phone. i was quoted a 15% interest rate, which i could live with, but when i got there, they sprang a 25% INTEREST RATE on me. that's like buying a car with a credit card! needless to say, i am not doing business with them. i know the last days of the month are the best days to buy a car, because they are trying to meet their sales quotas. i think they just wanted me to buy a new car instead of a used one. it couldn't come at a worst time...

after being unemployed for 2 1/2 years and running out of his unemployment benefits, he found a job that would start in 2 weeks. after him being off all that time and us having a car, we don't have one when he needs it for a job! i have applied to a few different car lots and i am waiting on the word from the financing departments. it doesn't hurt your credit score that much if you do up to five in a short period of time, so i hopefully will get good news very soon.

it just seems like i get a bit ahead and then get knocked a few steps back. i can deal with a $300 car note, that is how much cheaper my house is vs. where i used to live. i cannot pay 25% interest on a used car! no way, no how! i am just hoping the youtube videos will show bobo what he needs to know to fix the car. he really needs a job! i mean, i can keep things going like i have for the last few years, but goodness! it would be so much easier if he could get a job somewhere. i won't have to think fifty times about whether or not i can buy something i really need. we might get to go out and eat once in a while- i am a good cook but it gets old, eating at home all the time. i could tithe to my church actual money, rather than just giving my time and skills.

something good will have to happen! and soon! it's the first job that has come along he can do and while he has applied for disability, if he can do this job, he could forget all about disability in a heartbeat! he would rather work than go on disability and i think he would be able to treat me better if he felt better about himself.

please pray! wish on the blue moon tonight! whatever you do to get things done! i need help!
