My mom called me over the weekend and asks me if I want to buy a new car. HMMM well yes I would love to but I am saving for a new house, adoption. etc. Then she tells me that she gave my sister money when she crashed her car last month. So she wants to give me some. I told her it was not necessary but realized that I had to take it since my sister has not spoken to me in 3 years I think my mom feels guilty etc. I agree to take it but she won't tell me how much bc she wants me to having something to look forward to.
Then she tells me that my sister is having another boy and she keeps wishing for us. That is when I lost it and started crying. She said she wanted to give me good news and then bad. She had a lot of sympathy for me which she is getting better at. I think she finally realized that I am really infertile.
After I got off the phone, I spoke to DH and we decided to put the money towards the house. My car is 14 years old but I really wanted a new house.
Two days later my brake light comes on and then the brakes die. I had it towed to the dealer. They told me that the brake line rusted and fell off which made the brake fluid drain out. They said they have to replace the brake lines and the fuel lines and it will cost around $2,000. I just had it in for brake pads two weeks ago. There are also some other issues that had decided in the past not to fix so I knew this would not be the end or repair bills. This was the breaking point, so now I am getting a new to me car. It is crazy bc I am sad to lose the house money but I am really glad that my mom decided to help me out days before I really needed it.
I got a rental. The dealer gave me their discount which is about half off. This way I can take my time and not get something bc I have to.
