Just When You Thought I Had Realized That You Don't Want To Hear About My House Anymore

I've let myself hope so hard about the future that when I walked outside this morning I thought I saw a BMW in my driveway. Chris thought it might make 30 a little easier. It does. As a matter of fact 30 is so easy so far that I don't think she's wearing panties anymore.

As an added bonus, I've found that it's less difficult to feel hopeful about your future when you wouldn't mind living in your car.

When I turned 30, I didnt get a BMW. Hmmmm, I must be doing something really really wrong!

chirky said...

Stressed out + Turning 30 = BMW - no panties?

I could handle that.

MamaLee said...

Holy crap, woman. No panties AND a beemer? I need to step up my GAME! lol

Okay, I really, really want my house won't sell story to end with a BMW in my driveway. Really. (Well I really want it to end with my house selling but the BMW would be an awesome cherry on top!)

Is it possible to be so happy for someone that you'd like to squeeze the life right out of them?

Kelly said...

SHUT UP! A BMW?!?! *passes out*

Jennifer aka Binky Bitch said...

DAY-UM girl! When I turned 30 I got a vacuum.

I think Chris deserves a great big bear hug!

Lee said...

Okay, here I am, the chronic rain-on-the-parade-er....

You are about to short sell a house and (hopefully) save your credit by the skin of your teeth, and we celebrate by.....drum roll please......taking on debt?

Seems like the lesson in all this is yet to be learned.

Just sayin'.

Oh, Lee, just stuff it for a little bit and let Thirty be happy!

haha.. (she says it's used, can't be THAT much debt..right?).

It's awesome, Lena. Truly Awesome. Was there a bow? We always make fun of the Lexus commercials at Christmas time, saying "Oh, honey, look! A brand new car outside! A-ha-ha-ha! As IF!"

People really do just get cars for gifts, huh?

Here comes the rain again:

For those who won't click through, the RD version: Lena buys at the wrong time, Lena spends money unwisely, the market turns, and now Lena is upside down on her mortgage. There's also something about stacks of unpaid bills.

This is all something that I know something about. I am just now at the point where I finally got a mortgage at a car loan interest rate to FINALLY buy a house at a payment I can barely afford, after screwing myself doing the exact same overspending on credit without paying attention to consequences, only without a house thrown into the mix.

Maybe I have it wrong. Maybe it's a company car that someone else is paying for. I hope so.

I mostly enjoy reading here, else my IP address would not be all over the traffic meter. However, after "listening" to how rough Lena's financial situation has become, how expensive school clothes are, etc, etc, I think celebrating/congratulating a several, if not 10+ thousand dollar purchase seems a bit unseemly.

I do hope the short sale goes through smoothly and things straighten out.

Those muppets, the yupyupyup ones? Their names are Stevie and Jonathan. I saw them on an episode of Guy Smiley's This Is Your Life once. :) Remember that skit on Sesame Street?

Emily said...

oooh can't wait for thirty. it's *gorgeous*.

superblondgirl said...

If that what comes with 30, I am so down. (I suspect, though, that my 30 will be a cake and maybe some beer.)

Lena said...

Lee - Thanks for your concern. I assure you that we are in a much better financial situation now. We sold our Bentley to buy the BMW.

Anonymous said...

Hey Lee, if I ever throw a party for The Internet, remind me not to invite you.

I think it's a little strange that you're so concerned about what Lena and her husband do with their money. I mean, why do you care so much? Also, the comment about hoping it was a company car was just fucking rude.

It was funny to see how you made "your case" as to why we should not be celebrating Lena's new car though. Seriously, dude. Chill out and mind your own business.

delurking to say....
Lee, is Lena is upset and posts less I will kick your a$$. Quit justifying putting your issues on to Lena. We all know you are just jealous that life is starting to treat her like she deserves.

Y said...

You ate PIZZA? I hope to GOD you used a coupon for that pizza. I really do.

Anonymous said...

Lee, you should apologize for being an a$$ before you have to start another new blog. I agree, you are just jealous because Lena is a happy, wonderful person who can write circles around you.

Reading blogs is certainly not minding your own business. The business is being put out there to be looked at and minded. Lena is star of her own show.

And our star has gone from "we might make it out of this intact" to "oh, here's my new BMW!" It's a pretty huge leap. Huge. I'm happy they aren't really worried about money. A Bentley?! But I wonder about myself: was I really hoping they were?

Lee said...

Lena, congrats on dumping the Bentley. BMWs are cooler for 30 year olds anyway!

Nice to see the someone has a sense of humor.

Anonymous people, if there are more than one of you....delurking is not anonymous. If you want to berate me for expressing my opinion in a calm and personable fashion, at least have enough class to identify yourself and not resort to grade school "kick your ---" threats.

Again, Lena, I'm glad your situation has turned around to such a great point, and hope the short sell goes smoothly. Good Luck!

Lena said...

Right. Because I was serious about the Bentley.

Suburban Turmoil said...

Please have your husband talk to my husband. I have no car. Right now, I'd even take an old pick-up truck.

Tracy said...

I actually thought Lee was being very respectful and it did not come across as jealous to me at all. To be honest, I wondered the exact same thing -- Lena has put her budget on line for us to see, she has chronicled her financial problems and specifically written posts regarding her mistakes. On her other blog, she again talked about her lack of skill when sticking to a budget (we've all been there!) so it is only natural that Lee pointed out what seemed to be an inconsistency.

As one of the "anonymouses" pointed out, when you put your life on line, you invite comment. And I find it ridiculous that another "Anon" asked "Why do you care so much?" Seriously. Of course we care, we read a blog about a total stranger. If we didn't care, we wouldn't be here.

I am happy for Lena that her situation has improved and I hope that she continues to post often but she is a big girl and understands the nature of the double edged sword that comes when posting about her personal life.

islaygirl said...

you guys have it all wrong! don't you see, Lena got the beemer in a TRADE for her panties! it's freecycle! no harm, no foul, no debt!

(i love the car. happy 30th.)

Jess Riley said...

I'm still laughing over "Hold me closer, tiny specialist."

And were those Yup-Yup muppets the ones that got their undies in a bind over the ringing of a telephone?

(happy birthday! I feel old. You're only 30?!?!)
