Let's just start somewhere then, ok? Somewhere like two months ago when, after many weekends of test-driving and over-analyzing, WE. BOUGHT. A. NEW. CAR. Eeeeeeeee!! After twelve solid years and 100,000 miles (finally!) with the trusty CR-V...
|Yes, I nerdily took pictures as it flipped from 99,999 to 100,000 - don't worry, I was coasting very slowly through an empty parking lot in Deep Ellum. Ok, maybe you should worry about that...|
|I manage to get remarkably attached to inanimate objects.|
It's a Ford Edge, and I'm in love. There are now armrests for both driver AND passenger. I can TALK to my car and she understands me (sometimes). It still smells good. It has a really cool touchscreen and tells me what song is on the radio and it's just lovely. Given that I probably won't get another new car for a decade, I'm really embracing the moment here. Also, a MASSIVE sunroof and really cool ambient lighting. And fancy leather seats. Sigh.
Oh, and guess what? I managed to put a pretty good scrape on the front bumper after being in the car for approximately ten seconds. It's just now starting to be funny. All fixed now. Oh, and guess what else? A devious little rock decided to make friends with the windshield last weekend, and there is a nasty crack snaking its way across, so...getting that fixed this afternoon. Let's hope this doesn't continue to be a spend-$500-on-the-car-every-month-because-something-goes-wonky adventure. Yipes.
I still love it.
