I mentioned earlier this week that we're having some big repairs for the Toyota if we want to keep it.
It looks like we'd be shelling out thousands of dollars.
I wrote how I wanted to get a second opinion before making a decision on whether to repair or replace the Toyota.
So did we get one?
Different Ideas on Car Repairs (and More)
My husband and I have two very different styles of handling situations, with their own pros and cons.
He's very patient, analyzing a situation thoughtfully until he's comfortable with moving forward. At its best, we've made some wonderful decisions that has benefited us through the years.
I'm more of the look at the situation, gather as much information as quickly as possible, and then make the decision as soon as possible. If a decision can be made today or this week, why wait?
Respecting Each Other's Opinions
For the most part, I think our styles have worked very well with our mutual goals whether its finances or family decisions.
Once in a while, like this week, we kind of look at each other and wonder how in the world we came to each other's conclusion.
The good news is that it's not terribly urgent as we do have my car.
I'm not using it with this heatwave going on. I'm trying to stay cool and indoors as I wait for the baby to arrive. (She was due earlier this week.)
Thoughts on Disagreements and Personalities
I'm curious about your family and how you handle the different personalities. How do you handle differences?
Do you tend to wait for a consensus or do one of you kind of jump in and get started?
