1. I know I'm spoiled, get over it!
2. This means I get to travel to see my family more...
Alright, with that out of the way, yesterday, Chip and I went to North Country Ford (thanks to our neighbor) and there was an amazing deal on a Ford Flex. Yep, that's the car that I've been eyeing for so long now. You either love it or hate it, I happen to love it!! This thing in almost fully loaded with SYNC, Moon roof (and glass roofs for the other 5 passengers), power lift gate, rear parking assist, dual climate, blah, blah, blah! Truly, everything I had on my list except AWD. However, I think that's the one thing I needed to give up to make the car affordable (and findable!). So, with our neighbor connection we were given the royal treatment and a great deal that we just could not pass up. So we didn't. After about 5 hours of waiting and finagling, we came home with my new (used) Ford Flex. I can't wait to ride in it with y'all!
That purchase really topped off what has been a glorious, recharging final 2 weeks of summer. Going into my 4th year, I've never felt this rested and assured that it's going to be a great year ahead. We've spent some time with friends and even more time with family (which I NEEDED). And now that I don't have a mileage budget to worry about, I won't be soo frugal about going up to see mom or Jack or my other family. Which makes me quite happy!!
We're still waiting to hear about Chip's job, he has a potential offer on the table and we just need a phone call to let us know what's going on. Hopefully we'll get that tomorrow (and hopefully it's what we want to hear!). Chip has been a bundle of nerves (and allergies) since he's had his interview, and for good reason. This will be his first (real) job switch. Which is a big deal and a stressful time. (Fingers crossed.)
