Short and sweet!

So Mike and I have been together for a little over 7 years and it's not been until recently that we are a little above water. We've been working hard for the past 3 years on cleaning up our mistakes as younger immature "kids"... I'm not gonna go into great detail, I'm gonna keep our "mistakes" to our self's. All you need to know is this...

We tucked our tail between our legs and bucket up and worked our tails off (oh my gosh how corny!)... We got rid of our newer car 3 years ago and settled for an older 89 Honda. We own absolutely everything in our house we do NOT have a single credit card. If we wanted to buy something we saved our money and bought it with cash. We also did a few other things that was 3 years of pure hell, but in the long run it paid off. Because of all this we were able to FINALLY get a new(er) car and for that I am so freaking thankful.

I longed for the day when my fan belt wouldn't screech at Jared's school. I couldn't wait for my behind to be warmed by a seat warmer! I was excited to look out the roof of my car and see sun (sunroof). I honestly couldn't hold my breath long enough for the moment I could fit all kids in the backseat and I could sit next to my husband, in the front! Why do newer things make you feel so good!!!???

Anyway there is the short and sweet story of the process Mike and I have gone through... hopefully in the next year we'll be buying a house (that I cannot explain, but brings such excitement in my soul). I know I said I'd share this story awhile back, but we've been busy!
