Oh man! Mark's truck is dead - it needs a new transmission. Minimum for a truck like that will be $2000.
And now something is wrong with my minivan - it's leaking oil.
The funny thing is, if you're the laughing type, that we were already in the middle of financial trouble before any vehicles got sick!
We are still adjusting to our new life here in Alabama, and trying to catch up. Moving is expensive, and for a contractor, it is basically like starting over when you move. Twenty-two years worth of clients are back in Dallas. None of them would agree to come with us - how rude! ;)
We could badly use a loan right now! It would be great to see if there were any personal loans we could qualify for to help us out.
