Life and Death

May 28th, 2021 at 06:00 pm

The reason we needed to save for our Medical OOP again this year is that I am pregnant again! Baby #2 will be arriving this fall. So far things are going well. My kitchen remodel was definitely a project based on nesting. lol. Construction work is done and now husband and I are finishing up the trim and small details. 

In sadder news my grandma passed away recently very unexpectedly. This is quite a shock since she was healthy and we had dinner plans only a couple hours later. Her and my grandpa have been extremely frugal and hard workers their whole lives. They left a sizable inheritance to their children which they are in the process of sorting out. But my family has graciously gifted me her car. It's only a couple years old and much nicer than any car I have owned or could probably ever afford to own. 

My husband is still driving his first car and it's basically one mile away from dying at any moment so we have been saving off and on for several years for a replacement. He will start driving the new car which gets about 3x better gas mileage and we will use our car savings budget for other things. 

Although we are all sad about grandma it is such a nice parting gift to leave your family an inheritance instead of debt. I hope someday I will be able to leave something for my own children.

    I like this article very much. It really makes me happy. It is very helpful for newcomers. Thanks for this great blog. I am a gamer and I would like to suggest to you an OP Auto clicker which is really interesting.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Sudden deaths are harder on those who remain, but easier for the person who passes. I am glad your grandmother was able to leave an inheritance. You'll think of her when you drive that car!

    And congratulations on the pregnancy!
