Well, I did it. I bought a new car. It is a Scion, which is a Toyota, but it isn't, or something. I didn't understand the whole thing, but I love it! I'm not sure I love the tires, which are going to force me to take out and yet another loan when I need new ones. We had some snow, a mini-blizzard, right after I bought it, and I almost didn't make it up the street. Part of it was that I forgot to take off the emergency brake (OK, I know, dumb move), but the other thing, I believe, is that it has a bigger engine and fat tires. I have to get used to a new car in the snow, I suppose. Buying a car is awful. I don't think anyone truly gets a good deal. My co-worker tells of buying a used car and it didn't come with a jack or a manual. They told the dealer, who assured them that he would get them one, but she said they knew he was lying, but bought it anyway. They have since bought a new car, but she said they felt stupid that they fell for the sales pitch. I am satisfied with the deal I got...I think. It is a 2008, but it was sold as a new car with only 290 miles on it. I liked it because it was standard and it had a sun/moon roof. I never did know the difference between a moonroof and a sunroof.
Bean was in a play this weekend, and will be in one next weekend. And Monkeyboy jumped into the deep end at the pool in his swimming lesson. That's a biggie for him. He is desperately trying to pass the next level at swimming so he can stop taking lessons! Whatever works! I never learned to swim well. I never learned at all until I was an adult. Our community didn't have a swimming pool, so I never had access to one while growing up. I don't much like to swim and I don't like to go into the ocean or lake because I am afraid on what I might be standing.
I am tired of winter. I want spring to be here. I think there may be a tulip or two that the deer missed last year. February is ending and March does always get a few warm days as teasers, but then we also usually get a big snow just to remind us that winter is hanging on and does not want to leave.
Have a happy Sunday!
