I feel a bit of freedom now that we have a second vehicle again. I definitely took for granted the trips out we took after daddy went to work! What’d I do the first day he was back at work and I had wheels? I got a $1 fountain Dt.Coke from McDs and a $1 Cookie from Target! It was those little things I missed!
There were a few reasons why it took us so long (felt like SO LONG anyway) to replace the car. #1: Craig has limited time to go check them out. #2: I was pretty set on getting a larger vehicle that would last our growing family longer (no, I’m not pregnant). #3: Small hatchbacks and wagon/minivan/small suv’s are not in the same price bracket.
Craig was not/is not super excited about having a minivan, but that is what we ended up getting after-all. The night before we went to go look at a car we were planning on getting, I had a night full of bad dreams about it and even one dream telling me that I should heed their warnings. So, Thank You God for the help!
Here is what we ended up with:
2003 Dodge Caravan, 168K miles, DVD player and seems to be well taken care of. Hopefully it will last us a while, but you just never know! Especially with our historical string of bad luck with vehicles! I know that I don’t want to be car shopping again any time soon though!
