We went out today and bought a new car, a Chevy Aveo. I have always wanted a little yellow car. My husband wanted a gray one could you believe, that must say something about us don't you think?
It is a bit of a stretch financially but on the other hand it will save a lot of gas and I can get out a bit more. Right now we are careful about using the truck because it costs about $60 to even go shopping, but with the new one it will be about $12. So instead of going to see my boys by Greyhound I will drive. Yipee!
The other reason for getting the car is that I will drive, since we have been married, 9 years ago, he has done virtually all the driving. It just worked out that way but I need to start driving again, especially in the snow, which I don't like doing, and I don't want to become fearful of driving.
We will take his Ford Truck off the road in the winter and he says it will last longer if it not used all the time as it is a 1997. He needs to keep it for getting firewood and other manly pursuits, like dragging the boat around, getting gravel for the driveway, boring stuff.
So if I am not posting I will be dashing around British Columbia in my little yellow car.
