For the last year or so, H has been looking at buying a new car. We don't really need a new car as we have a car and an SUV. The SUV is a little too gas-happy, but we don't drive it long distances usually. The car is great, though not great in the winter.
He wants a sporty convertible (in Boston-very useful) and I would like to see if we have a child to determine what vehicle we buy. We had an agreement that if we got pregnant he would hold off and then we would buy something that can accept a car seat in the back. Well we got pregnant and then lost it. So now he is back to looking at convertibles. In January. In Boston. In 35 degree weather.
I don't really have any good rationale anymore. We have done 5 IVF cycles with no success and we are on board for another cycle in the nearish future, but what are the chances of success? Why are we holding off on a purchase because maybe in a year or two, possibly there might be any chance of putting a car seat in a vehicle.
Well what if there is no car seat? Why wouldn't we get the car he wants? I still think it is a silly purchase, but I also don't really care that much.
When we bought this house, I was sold on the fact that the back yard was awesome for kids. That the bedrooms were perfect for several kids or just 1 and maybe an au pair? That we never use half of the house now because we only need 2 or 3 rooms.
I told H that I am willing to sell the house and move closer to the city, maybe an apartment on the T line. Then job searching will be much easier, and getting in and out of the clinic will also be more convenient.
Why wouldn't we buy (or sell) the things we want because it might conflict with our plan, that might never happen?
