When life gives you lemons....

Well...we had to unexpectedly by a new car this week. Terence's old car was a serious LEMON if there ever was one! We just paid a LOT of money to get a new transmission a few months ago and then on Tuesday the radiator went out, which was going to cost another $2K and not to mention the air conditioner problems and it flooded whenever it rained! We were not budgeting to get a new car, but sometimes I guess you just gotta do what you gotta do and hopefully this car will be more reliable. I've never had any problems with Toyota so I think it will be a good commuter car for him since we are about to switch roles and he will be driving the 100 mile drive a day now after the move. It's a 2009 Toyota Corolla and only had about 30,000 miles on it and so far I think Terence really likes it and it makes me feel better he has a more reliable vehicle.
It seems like money is just poring out right now, but I guess we have a lot going on and lots of changes, but the one thing I've always known is God will always take care of us!

Wow, that's definitely a big unexpected decision.

Hopefully this car doesn't give him any grief so you can focus on growing Baby Branch!
