Here Comes the Boom

August 16th, 2016 at 02:38 pm

So after the shocking hospital bill yesterday. (Which I think is actually more of receipt and we don't actually owe, thank goodness) Not 100% sure yet.

The washer broke, dead, gone.

The stove has been dying for several months now, but I think it's finally about to the end. I had to wiggle and beat it for several minutes to turn on the oven yesterday. (Stove still works.)

Husband and I had been "arguing" over which to purchase first. A new stove or a new washer. He wanted a new washer because this one had been staining clothes and ruining them. I would have to run it several times to get something clean, and there was always a smell even after cleaning it several times. Well it looks like it is decided for us.

In addition, husband's power steering in his 21 year old vehicle has gone out while driving 3 times in the last two days. Super scary and unsafe. Frown I think it is really time to call it quits and get a new jeep.

So that means we are looking for a new car, a new washer, and a new stove. (I'm hoping I can go without an oven for a bit to delay that purchase.)

Also my timing belt is due to be changed in the next 2,000 miles on my car. Which will be over $500. Yikes!

Really. Yesterday I finally get caught up for the first time in months, and all this happens in one day. It's almost funny... But not quite.

This is on top of my very favorite pet being really sick. So I am stressed and worried to the max. I'm trying to keep calm, but I'm not good at it. I didn't get more than an hour or two of sleep last night.

Ugh. I know it will be okay though. We can cash flow a washer, and will take out a temporary loan for a car. Thankfully we are not living check to check. So while this is an inconvenience, it's not the end of the world.

    You are doing great! It's normal to struggle in your 20s, but you're doing it a lot more intelligently than I did when I was there. You're setting yourselves up for a secure future by dealing with these hits upfront.

    Sounds like Murphy is at your door .. but also like you've got a strong broom to beat him back! Smile You've got this.

    I hope your pet starts feeling better soon.

    Hopefully nothing else needs to be replaced soon!
