Not Sold On The Idea

So my van is up for sale, but l'm not sold on the idea of getting rid of it. I have had a few inquires and a guy is coming tomorrow morning to take a look at it.  Is it wrong that l may still not want to sell it?

I love my van, but l have been tossing around what the future holds for me.  In three days l will have two jobs, a day job and a night job.  The plan is to have these jobs for a couple of years and save mad money.  Will l be able to keep these two jobs for two years?  Knowing my track record, it may be a challenge.  I may get bored or more likely - pissed off!!  LOL

The whole reason l am thinking of selling the van is when the summer comes and time to move back in the van, l won't have much time in the van, and if it gets too hot, the cats will be miserable.  A big question is will l be miserable not living in my van and stuck in a sticks and bricks apartment.

A couple of reasons why l was thinking of selling the van was  the price of gas for using it as a daily driver.  One of you guys suggested that l buy a car and have both.  So if l got a beater for a couple grand, and then insure it, l wouldn't be saving anything and l might as well keep the van and put the whole idea of the cost of gas out of my mind and forget about it.

Another reason why l was thinking of selling the van is, l was thinking l would like something just a bit bigger in the future.  It is a bit tight with the cats and the kitty litter.  It's do-able, however Tommy tends to take over the passenger chair and that leaves the sofa/bed for me to lounge on.  And when it gets hot in the summer...... the poor kitties are hot in the van when l am not there.

I have been thinking of ripping out the ceiling air-conditioner, since to run it l have to be plugged in, and replace it with a fan-tastic vent which will run off the batteries and keep the van cooler with air circulating in the summer.

I've also toyed with the idea of renting a spot at the local campground for the summer.  I've also thought l could rent a spot for just the hotter months, and stay at wal-mart or such for the cooler spring and fall, again.

I've got a lot running through my mind and l am trying to sort it out.

When l really think of selling my van l experience a huge sense of sadness, which says alot, doesn't it?

  1. It says don't do it just yet. Unless he offers you an amazing deal, I'd pass for now and wait until your mind is more settled before making a decision.
