A new car!
Isn't she glorious?
I had been rolling in a 2-door Honda Civic for 5 years. It was very reliable, my first car payment ever, and got me back and forth to David when I was down at IU. It was a great car & I was really sad to leave it. But...it was time.
Two doors = the exact opposite of family friendly.
The car was in Chicago, so we spent our whole Saturday driving up and back to get it. We also took both kids. [Yeh. We're insane.] So, with stops for food/feedings and traffic, the whole day was about 11 hours long.
Long day for all.
