Car Trouble

= Hit to the e-fund.


This morning I was in bed, having a somewhat bizarre dream where I was hanging out with my boss and her new baby, when the phone woke me. In my household calls before 8 AM almost always mean something bad. It was my husband, letting me know he was pulling off of the highway because his car decided it didn't want to go more than 15 mph.

We got a tow from AAA, left the car at a shop, and I drove him to work. We have no idea how much it will cost to fix his car or if we're even going to bother. The plan had been to pay off my car (should happen in the next 2 months) then start saving for one for him. Depending on how much the shop says we may buy now.

There are way too many variables (cost to fix, availability of financing, rates, what to buy) for my liking. I'm crossing my fingers that it is something we can absorb into our monthly expenses and stay on plan. But something tells me it's not going to work that way.
