we traded this
One of my dream cars (you know when you have your list of what I want to drive when I grow up) was always a 4 runner with the 3rd back seat. And now I'm giving it up.
Sad? Yes! Heartbreaking? No.
Here is the heart breaker.
Ben E had a bad case of Croup.
We decided Riggles told me to take him in to Urgent care because the Strider was really bad and we couldn't get his fever to go down. He had it pretty bad even just laying around still. Urgent care gave him the steroid and the breathing treatment. It didn't work so they sent us to the children's hospital ER and told us to expect to stay the night. After hours of waiting and watching (mostly waiting) in the ER waiting room they took us into a room and gave him another breathing treatment.
And then we were able to come home.
An effort to save money never seems to work. As soon as we take care of one payment somewhere or sacrifice spending on something to save cash....something comes up where you realize....IT'S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN! Something is always going to be thrown in your way so you can't get ahead.
I'm so glad that my baby boy is on the mend. But kinda bummed my effort to save money and get out of debt is going to take longer if it ever happens at all. I have really good insurance and I'm really grateful for it. But I'm expecting big bills with an ER and Urgent Care visit.
My feelings as of this moment: Some families, especially with youngin's, need to have financial hardships. So many things are learned and acquired when going through these times of life. I would hate to miss out on the blessings and knowledge gained from of these trials.
