At any rate, I decided I wasn't going to moan and groan about either. Had to be done and we had the cash. That's life.
I did allow just a bit of self-pity, though, when DH announced this morning that he needs new tires, too. I mean, really? Twelve new tires is taking it a bit far, don't you think?? I guess it's like ripping off a Band-Aid ... you do what you gotta do.
To make myself feel better, I ran through our debt numbers and updated those that have changed. The numbers keep going down, so tires be damned, we're doing something right!
