Update on the Car Problem

My parents, with no prompting whatsoever, gave a me cheque today and told me to "buy whatever I wanted." So now all I have to do is decide what that is:) But I can definitely fully fund my Roth IRA for the year, so that makes me happy. And problem solved - it's nice to have such understanding parents. I don't know how people go thorough life without a supportive family - right now I'm so sick that it's all I can do to put one foot in front of the other, even with all the support I am given. It gives me some sense of why people want to have children, to give back some of the love and support that they have received in the only way that is possible, by passing it on to the next generation.

  1. sick? I do hope you get better quickly! I just got over a mild case of the flu myself.

    I think that is very gracious of your parents. And I believe to think you will choose wisely in finding a long lasting car like your last one. ;-)

    That some pretty good mileage on your last car! I am at 86K and no major problems with it so far (knock on wood). But I am very good about keeping it maintained. Only... as it gets older it seems to get more expensive!

    Have fun shopping for a new car. :)
