We still haven't decided where to go on our vacation... We have ruled out Europe due to time constraints... Allison can take care of things here with my mother for a few days but anymore the 5-6 she will be over her head and even that is stretching things. Also, we seem to be at odds about planning the trip... You see my husband is EXTREMELY
To add to his miserly angst we are in the market for a second car. Back during my unintentional blog hiatus we got a new vehicle... Last spring we bought a new minivan. We chose it because everyone can fit in it at once without having to take a caravan of cars everywhere and it has stow & go seats enabling me to easily get my mother's wheelchair in and out. About a month later Katy & Jed needed a safe vehicle to transport the baby in, so we gave them the Pathfinder leaving us once again with one vehicle. We generally do fairly well but it has become an issue lately as my business picks up. We can afford a second vehicle... In fact we have been planning for it for sometime and won't need to finance it, but the actual act of spending the money is so overwhelming to him. The easy answer is for me to make the decisions and just do it, but I know from past experience that action in a short term solution. Acting on major decisions without him takes over his role of the head of our household and that wounds our relationship... Waiting on him to act frustrates me to the point of argument and even anger... We have needed this car since last summer!! It's the same old story... Introverted tightwad marries extroverted spender and they try to live in harmony!
That's what's going on in my life... How about you?
Thanks for listening,
