Lazy week and a car, maybe…

I have had a really lazy week this week. I was sick Monday and Tuesday with the flu and didn’t go to work or to the gym. Wednesday I still felt a bit under the weather and yesterday and today I just can’t get my motivation back. I know I need to though!

So, I made a mistake the other day. I am always bugging Cory about getting paid and then taking all his money out and using cash till the next pay. I bugged him to leave it in the bank and use debit. That way we can keep track of what he’s spending it on the way I do. So I nagged him. He took my advise and did it. Only he was behind on his payments on his credit card which is over limit and the froze the remaining 200 and then took it to pay the card. Oops. I felt so bad. But we’ll be okay.

I have some exciting news. I may be getting a new(er) car! Not brand new but 3 years newer (2011), better on gas, cheaper to insure (by $158!), in better shape inside and out then the current one (a 2008 Cobalt Lt) and with more features! Plus it will cost me about the same each month! Wanna see it?

2011 Ford Fiesta SEL

If you said no… To bad! Ha! Anyways, I’ve been pre-approved and the sales guy told me it’s in my price range and is working it into my budget. I am just waiting for him to call me back tomorrow or Monday with the numbers. I’d be trading my car in and putting a $500 down payment. I’m ready excited and so is Cory!

I never thought I’d ever drive or want a Ford but it’s a pretty cool little car and will save me in the long run. It has ambient lighting and Ford sync! The downside? 4 more years in my loan. Essentially they pay the one off and roll the amount owing into the other when I trade the cobalt in.

Works going good. Found out my “position” is basically being extended for a bit cause they don’t need me back in tech (support) right now. I’ve been given another project that is related to work on. Meaning more time off of the phones (anyone ever worked in a call centre can appreciate that). I’m enjoying the new responsibilities. To bad it didn’t come with better pay oh well! The experience is good for me.

Update 5/31/14: I didn’t feel like creating another post right now so I decided to just updated this one. We are going on Wednesday to test drive the car as they did not have a safety inspection sticker on it on account of it just coming in. I can’t wait to get a look at it again. Looks like I will need to put $500 down on it to help get the loan approved from the bank. I will have to look at it all on paper so I can make sure I am not getting taken. Always a concern with car sales man lol. But I am getting really excited. We both are

  1. Hope you’re feeling better and yay for new things! I paid my own off about a year ago, but it’s hitting that 6 years old mark. Granted, I’m going to try my best to run it into the ground (it’s a Subaru), but we’ll see.
