It got worse...

...but it's gonna get better! So, in the midst of a catering for 350 people yesterday, dad called to say the Jeep was in worse shape than he thought. Fast forward through a few crying meltdowns from me, lots of emails and phone calls today and we have found a mechanic in Newport that even gives a warranty with his work. Now, the trick is that Dad has to get the Jeep to them and we wait...could be really bad (like a new engine) or kinda bad (busted gaskets). Best case is about $1200 right here at the holidays. Good thing I have mostly finished shopping. Bad part is that the ones I haven't bought for is the kids and you can't tell them their presents went to fix the car. So...how does a little more debt on top of a pile of debt sound? Overwhelming? Yep! But, the bright side is that most of our debt is business related and if business stays at the pace it has been lately, I can see the way out. It is honestly ridiculous how many hits we've taken in one week (even more hits than just the two cars dying in two days!), but I've decided it's easier to roll with the punches than to be down and out.
Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Ephesians 6:10
