Which would you choose?

So I'm driving Nick to his girlfriend's house today so that I can have the car this afternoon and I was telling him that Frank has a lead on a van.  Praise the LORD!  Well,last night at bible study we were talking about God's plans for us and how we should not make plans without praying about them and I said "Well, I guess God wants us to stay in this house because now that we have to buy a vehicle, we can't move."

This prompts a discussion where my son (gotta love him) tells me that he would GLADLY let me use his car WHENEVER I wanted it if we would move now and let Frank keep using my car.  Really?  Whenever I wanted?  So like, tomorrow, when you have someplace to be but I want the car, can I have it then?  How about the next time you want to go to a concert but I want Starbucks?  Can I have it then?

I think it all sounds well and good but really, the reality would be very different.  I mean, as much as I would LOVE to move from this house, every time we try, something comes up and something happens and here we still are.  So that tells me something.  Personally, after living without a car for the last few weeks, I would gladly STAY in this house if I could just drive my own dang car and not have to maneuver, manipulate, beg, borrow and STEAL someone's car just so that I can go and get some milk!  It's crazy!

Car or house?  Sadly, I choose car.

I would chose my sanity, and if that means a car, than a car. If it means moving, then I'd move. It's a tough choice for sure.

We are in the same boat, and the way I see it... the peace of mind of being able to get where you need to be outweighs everything else.

If you truly want to move, you will one day. I kind of feel stuck in the apartment I'm currently living and I have set myself a goal of being out of here somehow before the lease ends in June 2011. I have to do it for my own sanity. Thankfully since I started living in Central London, for the first time in over 20 years I don't need a car.

All you need to do is seriously think what’s best for you and then do what you need to do to make it happen...
