New Car!!!

After 13 years, lots of talking, internet searching, number crunching, 5 car dealership, 4 test drives and 3.5 hours at the dealership....we bought a new (new to us) car. It is a 2009 Nissan Altima. This is the car Raymond wanted but I get to drive it! While waiting at the dealership I discovered I really like the Chevy Equinox (kinda reminds me of the Volvo SUV). Raymond told me I could have one if I got a job....I don't think I want one bad enough right now to go back to work ;)

You can not tell it in the picture but the car is a beige/gold color. The girls like it as well. They have been trying to figure out why I got the new car and we left daddy's old car at the dealership. Raymond now gets to drive my Camary, which is about to have a major milestone of hitting 100,000 miles.

On a more embarressing note, when I was cleaning out the Camery I discovered I had over 40 CD's in my car. How in the world can I have that many CD's in my car?? Needless to say that many will not be going back into the new car. Maybe 10 or 15 of them.

How nice! We had to get rid of Matt's Altima back in November and I got a new to us Honda Odyssey and Matt said he would drive my old Town and Country that has over 200,000 miles on it. I too like the Chevy Equinox, we have a friend that has one and really likes it. Matt told me I could trade in the town and country while he is gone to Boot Camp and Tech school...I told him I want a Volvo C60 like Edward drives! Not sure I will be able to swing that on a military salary :) I hope you enjoy your new car :)

Congrats! We've got to get Billy a new car and I really dread the process. I know you're glad it's over. :)
