Finding Time and Money

We all know that well-wore old saying "When it rains, it pours!" Don't we? And it's the darned truth too, isn't it? Heaven knows this week we've had more than our fair share of pouring rain, that much I do know, first hand!

How so? Well, apparently the roof over our bathroom has done sprung a leak or maybe a shingle or two or twenty were blown awry from the storm we had here today. Anyway you cut it, this is not exactly an opportune time to have to consider the expense of repairing a roof, even one as small as the one over our bathroom.

Mainly because Mandy is also having some car issues with "Little Bluebell" -her current mode of transportation. A friend of hers from the restaurant where she works told her he can hook her up with a sweet deal on an older model Buick and she's giving that consideration.

However, between the roof problems now and the idea of a "new-to-her" vehicle, if we're gonna swing a deal to get both taken care of I think she'll have to swing something else too, like a visit to title loans Dallas!

I know darned well what extra I might have this month and what extra she might have sure as heck won't cover both those things. For all I know, it might not even come close to touching one of 'em.

Anyone wanna do a roof repair? Cheaply?

Why is it that everything goes wrong together? We have that too. I can usually accept a major problem but when they come in multiples then that is what gets to me.
Hope you find some way of fixing it all.

So sorry to hear your having roof and car troubles all at the same time. Hope you can figure out a way to manage both problems without breaking the bank!
