- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
So a few months ago I finished off my last payment on my car and a few weeks later my FI crunched the side of it in a parking garage.
So today on my way home for lunch my car broke down. Steering wheel locked up, oil light came on, and it wouldn’t crank back up after I turned it off. Thankfully I had roadside assistance so the towing was covered by insurance. But now I get to play the waiting game for a few days while they figure it out. And I know it’s going to be bad and by bad I mean F’ing expensive.
Even worse since we are two months out from the wedding our vendor balances are due and we were already cutting it close to pay them as it was and now we have to add either car repair payments or a downpayment on another vehicle if it’s too expensive to fix. I would be quite happy to walk to work and take the bus as necessary except I can’t go more than a week or two without a car because I am required by my job to drive for hearings in four local counties on a regulr basis.
I just feel like we can’t get ahead and we’re going to be flat broke by the time the wedding is here. Sometimes being an adult sucks.
