Life, Credit, GPS and Home Improvement

Our lives are not all fun in the sun, is it? After my girl and I passed a full week away from the real world on vacation, it was time for the two of us to confront our real lives again. From high interest rates on our credit cards and our auto loan to house projects left incomplete, she and I had our work cut out for us. And you know, I’m stubborn old dog, so I wasn’t giving up on my GPS project, either.

The first thing we did was address the credit cards. Thankfully, even in this time of tough credit, credit card companies and auto loan bureaus seem eager to please people with good credit. My wife did a great job isolating the optimum deal on the best zero percent balance transfers.

I’m thankful somebody in the house has some sure sense of our financial situation… and it sure as heck is not me. But the lower interest rate and smaller monthly bills ought to really supply us some breathing room.

Next we had to discuss a number of house improvements we had been designing for quite some time. Some might suppose we have no business investing in improvements at this time, but what can I say? We prefer to pig-headedly press forward.

My wife has been looking over the different available steam showers and we both agree on the bathroom lights and bathroom sinks we want for our bathroom remodel, but after looking over some discount bedsheets, we’re no longer on the same page for the new bedding.

Gratefully, she’s being either encouraging or patient of my small gadget obsession. I’m not too bad about it, but I have my weakness. Currently I have narrowed it down to a handheld tv, DVD projector or a Garmin Golflogix GPS. Speaking of GPS, we both agree it is time to develop a better understanding for gps vehicle tracking for our vehicle safety.

I believe GPS technology has refined enough and grown cheap enough that we need to integrate it into our life.

I’m just relieved my wife and I are on the same page for a majority of this material. People’s lives can be so much more challenging when the souls around you use our troubles as launching points for their pride instead of chances to unify and grow.
