This just in: The lienholder on our car has a special program for people who are temporarily struggling and we were approved!!!!!! We don't have to make a car payment until February!! And it doesn't go on our credit report as being late! Whoo-Hoo! I'm so happy I'm going to jump on the bed! And then maybe I'll even get out of it for a little bit.
Sometimes I'm kind of glad I have a husband. If this had happened to me when I was single I wouldn't have seen any way out besides driving back and forth across the bridge on windy days and staying really close to the edge. But he knows all kinds of loopholes and secrets to survival.
Then again, if I was single I'd probably still be on the beach pouring sweet tea for pennies a day which doesn't sound so bad right now. But I wouldn't have someone telling me everyday that I deserve better. And I'd be too scared to try anything new without him pushing me. So yeah, I guess he's a good one to have around.
