We have decided to buy the new car! Can you hear the high pitched squeal? Are your dogs going mad in the house? And if you notice any massive spelling errors - well ignore them because I'm typing with two clenched fists!
Unfortunately it's not a hybrid, it's a Subaru Forester. But it was as if the heavens opened and instead of acid rain pouring down on our heads, sunshine and rainbows are bursting through to the sounds of angels singing and a GREAT DEAL WAS TOSSED OUR WAY. Otherwise we would continue to go strong with our little toy Escort, praying each time I used it that the tires would actually be inflated and the floor wouldn't drop out and that it would last just one more year. We couldn't turn it down. Plus it has a MOON ROOF and HEATED SEATS and a 5-star safety rating! And incredible financing!
Things are looking up I must say.
We even had THE CONTRACTOR over this evening to go over the deficiency list and he's going to correct almost everything...and without complaint! He's obviously doing quite well having moved away from renovations and into property development. He had a glass of wine, he was charming, he shook my hand... Of course he didn't say WHEN he would be starting the repairs.
So I'm sitting here having a glass of wine, feeling pretty darn happy. And I'm counting down the days to my breast MRI at Mt. Sinai hospital.
