Cars....a serious cause of stress in my life and marriage right now. Hubby's car was not suitable to be licensed or carry a child seat, so he got another one....it died....got another and it died....borrowed his dad's car (had an extra) and it has now died....so 3 cars in 1 year...killed.
I have threatened that Hubby's next care will be a horse & buggy....he was VERY excited to get to have a horse. I have revised the threat to bicycle...it's less appealing.
So you say, go get a car loan and a new car....can't afford 2 car payments.
So you say, just use 1 car...we both have full-time jobs that are 45 miles apart...plus he starts work at 7:00 AM :(
What do you do?
Well, for the last 2 weeks I have been driving 10 minutes to a small town just South of us where a friend picks him up and takes him the rest of the 20 miles. This is all fine and well, BUT it is at 6:30a.m. LO is not ready to get up, but has to go in her car seat.
Last week, I left work at 4 to go pick up LO and then go 10 miles south and pick Hubby up before finally getting home. This week Hubby's brother & mother are picking him up in the afternoons. This is a HUGE help....but still sucks.
The long and the short of it is...if you see my hubby walking down the highway, carseat on his back....please pick him up and take him to CVS to catch his ride ;)
