That today will be the last day of this single car BS! Got up early again so I can drive my son to school before I head to work. Hubby will be stuck home without a vehicle, and the twins will have to catch a ride after soccer. We'll be going down to sign the papers to get my new van right after I get out of work. We were approved, and we got the down payment we wanted. The monthly payment is higher than we would have liked, as is the interest rate, but with our credit that is not surprising. We can afford it, things will be tight. We had been wanting to pay down our debts and weren't going to get a van until that was done, but now we have no choice. So we probably won't be paying down our other debts as quickly as we'd like. I think we can still manage with the rest of our bills though... if push comes to shove the twins will have to give up their cell phones. When tax season comes around we'll pay off a few bills and maybe think about refinancing the van to get a lower monthly payment. So we've just go to try to survive a few months and then hopefully things will get better. Wish us luck!
