Here it is...the car my daughter wants to buy. (This isn't the acutal car, but one exactly like she wants.) She was looking on a car website two nights ago and sent the link to me. She said 'this is the one I want.' Wouldn't you know it...it's a diamond in the rough because there's not many of these with tan interiors like she wants. She was really hoping to continue to save some money until September (her birthday), but when this car popped up, well...sometimes you just have to act, right? So she invited me to go with her today to find out about pricing and all that stuff that goes with buying a car. Since the car has to be brought up from Virginia it won't be at the dealer's until Wed and so we'll get to see it Friday as that's when my daughter has off. I hope this car is all it's cracked up to be because I really think daughter has her heart set on it.
After we were finished at the dealership we went out to eat at Olive Garden. Mom always pays the bill, but that's okay because I'm just happy to have some time with my daughter. DD was saying how sad it will be to trade in her car...she's had her little blue escort since she was 16 years old. She has a lot of memories in that little car. She's at a point in her life where she needs to get rid of past things and replace with new and that's what I told her to focus on. We can't hold onto the old...it's sorta like hoarding..if you don't get rid of it and move on you'll be stuck and who wants that?
DD sets goals for herself. It's interesting how she'll make a list of things she wants to accomplish and she does. I just wish I had a list of stuff to accomplish; I just can't think of anything left for me to do as sad as that sounds.
That's the news for today.
