New car!

My old '94 Plymouth took a dive this past wk. It was leaking from everywhere and to put more $$ in it didn't make much sense.....

Sooooo, I bought a new car! I've actually had it since last Fri. but I've been waiting for the loan to go thru before I could say anything. It's a 2005 Subaru Legacy Outback, light green in color and they even took my old leaking car as a trade in. The new paint job I gave it last yr must have helped!

Money may be tight for a long while but my plan is to move into an apt. after the family leaves for graduate school. T has been applying at Penn. State, Chicago, Berkely & Riverside in CA, and I dunno where else but he tells me that they encourage students to apply to 12 schools. He's taking his GRE test next Tues.

Back to the car....I love it!

I know!! I had that Plymouth for 15 yrs! I still kinda miss her, she was a good old gal. I guess cars and humans are sort of alike when it comes to getting old...they both leak! LOL

How will I feel about being alone for the first time?

It's not the first time. I was alone after I divorced my 2nd dh and my dd moved out on her own (so to speak) But I was still working then. Sometimes I wonder if I should go back to some little job but boy do I love sleeping in! Besides, I'm not up to par as far as computer work goes.

So being alone doesn't really bother me much but I do know I'll miss that little guy. I just told gdil last night that I want her to take pics of me and the baby together cuz he's going to forget all about me after they move away.

I've had two Subarus before....one a sedan and the next was the XT Sport model which I loved. I had to sell it when I realized I couldn't transport both my gs and my mother at the same time. That's when I got the Plymouth. This new Subaru w/be the last car I own, unless it turns out to be a lemon, knocking on wood here.

Ya know, I had to ask the guy several times to show me the car fax, and he kept forgetting. He finally showed me what was called an AutoCheck by Experian which he claimed was the same thing. Maybe it's cheaper??? I dunno, but it reported everything was A-OK.

It went just fine. She did tell me that she has seen some of her druggie friends but that she cannot afford to use drugs herself. She's getting along well w/my older sister. There are 3 cats at her house and one of 'em lives w/my dd on the basement floor. The other 2 are upstairs. She spent some time on my puter, had a pc of big cookie and then left to go get a cell phone. She's trying real hard to get me to talk to my sis but I really have no desire, KWIM?
