Nick's car won't start. It's true. The '93 Buick Roadmaster is having issues. Who ever would have ever thought. (Go ahead and laugh at the Roadmaster, but seriously, it's a smooth ride!) Nick is going to try to fix it this weekend, but he thinks it is the starter, and in a Buick apparently the starter is hard to get to. We may have to use a mechanic...and that will cost money. Money that we just don't have. Between taking on the new bill for the IVF, and the rising costs of ALL of our living expenses, things have just gotten tight. I know we can make it work. We make enough money, it's just getting used to the changes. Each time that it feels like we can handle it, that we can adjust, we get hit with something else. It's just when your house payment, home owners insurance, gas bill, electric bill, water bill and cable bill all go up over a couple month period, it stings. Add in the stress of wondering where the money will come from for the babies insurance and childcare (and you know, STUFF. Lord knows babies need stuff), and you get two kinda stressed out soon to be parents. I know with the financial crisis the US is in, our issues are small, but they sure are real. And it sucks.
