Out With the Old and In With the New!!

So, we did a lot of searching for cars on our cable company's auto channel, and I fell in love. My husband's always liked this particular car, but it wasn't until I started looking, knowing that this was going to be MY car, that I realized, "Hey, that car is frickin' cute!!!" Yesterday afternoon we set out with my jalopy to test drive it and WE BOUGHT IT! BONUS: they accepted my car as a trade-in so we wound up getting $600 off this car. That doesn't sound like a lot, but we were just going to junk it, so we would've gotten maybe $50 for it! AND the dang car won't be sitting in the driveway for God only knows how long! When all was said and done, the new car cost $8,200.

This morning we had my daughter's honor roll/perfect attendance award ceremony and after that we stopped at the bank to take out the money to pick up the car this afternoon.

What all that money looks like...
While I was counting it, I asked my husband, jokingly, if it turned him on, and he said "Looking at that much money makes something else withdraw, too!" He won't cry seeing the car go, but he'll shed a tear saying goodbye to all of that money!

So.... we just got back and here she is...
