Exciting times at my house

Feb 25, 2017 5:10 PM

Okay, our family has struggled so much financially, we had to have a second vehicle reposed. We filed our taxes earlier than we usually do and we got a decent amount back and will be able to buy a second vehicle out right no payments!! We found a 2008 Chrysler minivan in like new condition, wider body style, a pretty red. Called the guy up and now we are on a ,5 hour trip to Oklahoma to look at it and well you mine as well say buy it lol! The guy knows that we are 5 hour's away and is going to wait for us! I'm excited it's been a really long time since we had 2 car's and very much needed because I had to walk home with the kids from thier school from parent teacher conferences because of other things going on. We would have more left of taxes except the retirement department messed up things and didn't take state taxes out of the monthly retirement payment so we owe a big chunk to them but still blessed to be able to buy a second vehicle! Will post pictures much much later tonight or tomorrow.

Wow fatigued Fighter, I bet it was a mess! I'm just glad that the only thing we have to replace is the A/C condenser.

Will do Mimikay! It would be great to see you in person!

Sezzy, I am so glad that the kids are feeling better and Momma can get some down time! Being a single mother isn't for the faint of heart!
