Just Tired

Just tired of writing. I'm a stay-home mom but I don't really stay at home the whole day. My hubby loves to go out. He gets bored and tired being at home and I am the opposite. I don't mind going out but to go out everyday is really tiring for me. We go out either from 8:30am till afternoon because he needs to go to work at 4pm and when I'm home alone with our baby all I do is take care of our baby. When my baby is asleep that's when the time I can clean our house or do things in the house. But sometimes I just get so tired that all I do is rest and just talk to my family in the Philippines. After that I still need to clean the house. I do want to work online but when my mind and body is exhausted I couldn't think well. Every night I don't get enough sleep from waking up when my baby cries. I wish I can get enough sleep. Just wishing.

Driver's Manual

Today, my hubby bought me a driver's manual so I can study the rules and regulations of driving a car. Recently, I have been telling my hubby to teach me how to drive already so I will know how. I thought I would choose not to know how to drive yet but then I realized if i won't learn now then when will I learn. My hubby drives a bit crazy and I told him that maybe I'll be driving like an old person or worst than that. I even told him that if I learn how to drive I don't want him to be my passenger because he is very impatient when it comes to traffic.

We go out almost everyday so I've seen how people drive here. Most people here doesn't really abide to the rules of traffic or maybe they just don't care about getting a ticket and other cars. Hubby doesn't like how women drive here. He always gets irritated when he gets behind a slow or dumb woman driver. I am not sure why women here drives like that. Maybe they just want to really make sure they are driving right or just being so ignorant of the traffic rules. But for me, either men or women is pretty much the same. I just hope that I will be a good driver.

Selling the Old and Getting New

Thanks to Darwin Barton

I decided it was time to get a new vehicle since my family was expanding. I didn't have the money to just go out and buy a car and I knew that if I traded my car in I wouldn't be able to get a good price for it. I searched on kbb.com which is Kelly Blue Book. This website gives you the value of your vehicle when you put in the condition of it. This will give you a good idea of how much you should be getting when you trade your vehicle in or sell it privately.

I decided to use the amount that they gave me and list my car using my hughesnet internet. I put it on many websites, including craigslist.com. This is a free website that allows you to list just about everything that you want to sell. It is one quick and free way to list your vehicle online.

After only listing my car for a few days I got many different offers. I found someone to buy my car off of me for almost a thousand more of what it was actually worth after I switched from hughesnet to dial up. This was a great investment for my new vehicle. As soon as I sold the car I started searching for a new one. I contacted the nearest Honda dealership and put a down payment on my new Honda Accord.
