Meet Red Car!
It has been awful only having one car. Since Todd works nights, I would be stuck at home after he went to work. I was feeling a bit trapped before the Bug died, but that trapped feeling got worse once I was actually trapped in the house.
But we did our taxes a little over a week ago and got our refund a week later. We had a busy weekend with wrestling shows and a bridal shower, so we didn't get a chance to go car shopping until this morning.
My dear husband has been researching cars for about a month now since we knew we were going to get something once our tax refund came. And he found a great one at a local car lot, so we went to see if it was still there.
It was and Todd took it for a test drive while I waited at the dealership with Emily. He liked it (and he's super picky) so we did all the paperwork right then. So we are now the owners of a new (to us) Honda Santa Fe, which Emily immediately named "Red Car".
So now I'm no longer trapped in the house and I can start looking for a job next week. So it's been a very exciting day for our family!
