Well, since it's pretty well official...we're getting a new car!!! I REAL new car!!! So we went to the dealer again today and found out that there is THE PERFECT PT Cruiser that we've been wanting for...oh...about 5 years.
It's a Touring Edition, so it has all the bells and whistles that we want, and it's the Deep Plum color that we both LOVE. We're pretty sure that we can get decent financing on our own, but my Dad said that if the interest rates are too high that he would be willing to co-sign on it.
So now it's pretty definite that we WILL be getting it, and now I can actually get excited about it!
And the best part...insurance may actually go DOWN from what we're paying, it gets better gas mileage than the Volvo, and our monthly car payment will be going down!
So that's how we're spending out Labor Day - being very excited about a new car!!! (Oh yeah, and we're having some nice steaks and good wine for dinner to celebrate too.
