Okay, I love my little 2-door sports car, with sun-roof and all the other fun stuff... but, as before, my 2-door fun-mobile soon gets outgrown by everyone but me, so once again... we go back to the 4-door model.
I had a 2-door Mazda when I was pregnant... that was my "mommy mobile" and "family ride". My brother teased me, but I loved my little car. If I can still get in and out of it, I am gonna keep pedaling it!
It died, finally (insert hysterical sobbing). I had to shop... yuck! Okay, so, 2-door Celica here I come... sun roof, tunes, cool-looking, white with chrome, sharp... but even less of a "family ride" than my Mazda. Lasted a year before my mom and son outgrew it... neither could ride comfortably and no one else was gonna drive it.
Boo hoo... okay, 4-doors and trunk... guess I can adjust... for 2 years... and then another 4-door for 3 more years... and another for 3 years. Guess it's not TOOOOOOO bad.
Okay, then it was time for my 2-door again... sporty, sunroof, spoiler, cool, fun... for 2 years... until, once again, the family outgrew it... my son's head hits the ceiling in the back seat and my mom and her hip surgery can't get in and out of the car well. AARRGGHH!
Well, God must have been looking over us, along with all our finances and aches and pains. We got a letter from the dealership and they were willing to trade our car early. (2 years early of the lease). My mom said to look into it, couldn't hurt, could be cheaper.
Okay, so we were going to the grocery store Saturday and ended up at the dealership. (That is now the new running joke in our house... I went to get bread and milk and came home with a car!) I drove home with a new car... 4-doors, truck space, leg room, head room, mom can get in and out, my son's head doesn't scratch the ceiling, and the payments are lower. (so is the insurance)
okay, I can do this 4-door car...
for a few years anyway...
