Money Matters

My hubby and I are currently here at a car-wash cum cafe shop near our place, having our car washed, eating pasta, having coffee and accessing the free wi-fi. Yeah, we left the kids at home so we can chill even for a few hours.

Anyway, we have been discussing over and over again our pending decision to sell our present car. This came about after my dad recently exchanged his red pick-up with a SUV. The owner of that car, who is leaving for the States soon, incidentally is also selling another car at a truly good price. My initial feeling: I WANT! But of course, we need to sell our old car first in order to afford buying that car, or any other car for that matter.

Moreover, I realized that I haven't even received my first paycheck at my new job plus there are many other things are on top priority, that is, more than a new car. I actually even availed of online payday loans in order to make ends meet for this month. Besides, we are also having an on-going construction at home. As I wrote about in my "house-everything" blog, our house got robbed a few weeks ago that is why we've hired a person to put up a higher wall with barb wires at our backyard now. Then after the wall repair, we will also need to fix the bedroom door of Yaya Cat which the robber destroyed. We also need to put up new grills for our windows at the back. Oh, and before I forget, I'm having a big cabinet made at the attic for the kids' toys and books. Whew! That's a lot of expenses I'm not looking forward to. LOL.

So again, what about the new car? Well, if it's for us, it's for us. God will find a way if He wants to. :-)
