...AND BOUGHT A CAR!!!
The entire time we have lived here, we have not bought a car for many reasons.
One reason is because Australia is really expensive. We were trying to absorb the crazy costs, but we finally decided sometimes it is ok to spend a little money and hope we can sell it, without loosing much.
Second reason, we have no clue how long we will be here.
Third, have you looked at the oil and gas market?
Fourth, every time we get comfortable, our life gets flipped upside down. (UMM, moving here, changing apartments, umm the list could go on.)
We finally decided though, we would bite the bullet, and use our car spot for more than just a place to do handstands.
It is nice to be able to have the option to jump in the car and go, without looking at the bus schedule or thinking about the price of a taxi. I love the fact I do not have to haul groceries ten blocks from the market, not covered in sweat by the time I get to work, and I could go on and on. The car is ten years old, but we are really excited about it and ready to explore more of the Brisbane area. Now, just pray we get to stay here long enough to enjoy it longer than we mulled over the idea of actually buying one.
What is something you have finally bit the bullet and bought?
