Had to wait two hours at the MVD to transfer my car title over. Worth it when I got to see the title with just my name on it, no lien holders, no leasing company.
I thought briefly about framing it.
In bigger news, my wife is pregnant. At first I was ecstatic. This is good news. Now Im thinking about all the work Im going to have to do to get the house ready for a baby. Child locks, padlock for the pool gate, bolting furniture to the wall, getting a wall mount for the tv, combining the contents of two bedrooms into one room so the other can be the baby room, etc, etc...
Its ok though, it will keep me busy and hopefully keep me out of trouble with a hormonally challenged wife.
Anyways, this will definitely affect our financial picture. I just finished getting our budget straightened after my employment change, too.
Good news is that with the extra money from the new job, and with the car payment gone, we have about $750 a month that is unallocated. I was going to use it to attack my student loan payment, but now maybe its better to save that money for any unexpected baby expenses and for the loss of my wife's income for probably about 3 months(1 month before and 2 months after).
