WE GOT A NEW CAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A BRAND new 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe limited!! Not what we were in the market for exactly, but we got it for such a GREAT deal, that we couldn't pass it up! It has leather seats, a sun roof, seat warmers, dual control AC and other fancy stuff. I am IN LOVE with this car! I love sitting up high when I drive and I love all the room that we have and how it rides. It's nice to not feel every speed bump... So great! I am still in that phase of not wanting ANYONE to park next to me. I get panic stricken and worry that they are too close or that I could hit them... And that would not be good.
Had to say goodbye to my faithful Elantra... She was a good car, but it was her time. She needed to be traded in!
But.... sadly, Firefighter and I are going to have to share the Santa Fe. One of the reasons we got the Santa Fe was for the room. Firefighter needs a LOT of room for all of his gear that he needs to carry around. BUT I told him that when he isn't working or volunteering than I get to drive it. And I will fight him to the death if he decides to be an ass about it.
I am looking forward to enjoying a new car, for the first time in 9 years! Even if it means another car payment.
