  • where do I start?

    I finally got a regular job with normal hours to spend with my SO and daughter. 2 weeks after I got this job I was in a accident on the way to work. and my SO gets a job working 50 hours a week and now we see each other less or we are just to tired to do anything fun or stay up past 10 lol. being an adult sucks lol

  • None really? I have always noticed when one door seems to close theres a window open somewhere too.

  • LOL well thats the point. You need to try and find a silver lining. Maybe his car was ready to go and your lucky to have gotten another car to replace it before it did. That is how I try to see things anyway.

  • It may suck but could you possibly take him to and from work? We are down to 1 car now because our minivan needs a new battery. Instead of buying a new battery, we'd rather keep saving to just buy a new minivan so I have to drop hubby off at the train station and pick him up at night. It really sucks but I have to do it because I have to pick up my son from school everyday. But it does give me the opportunity to have the car during the day and get out of the house if I want.

  • Keisha, I wish it woould work that way for us,lol. Trust me..we've done that. But with his new job he leaves the house anywhere from 3 in the morning to 5:30 in the morning and some nights he doesnt get off work till 9-10 pm. Plus it takes over an hour each way to drive. And there is no subway or anything like that for him to get to work. And if he took a bus..whoa..I would hate to even calculate the time it would take him,lol. I don't even think there is a public bus route ON our street (we live in the country).
    Two years of this..yeah..I'm frustrated with the old car breaking down this morning,lol. I'm sure he's going to fix it..and I pray its something simple and not costly. Its just aggravating.
    Thankyou for the advice though! I do appreciate it!
