So, I was filling the radiator on our 1990 Toyota Camry last night with a gallon of water. I thought to myself the same thing I've been thinking the past few weeks: "Maybe we should get a new car." So at 7:10 am this morning I hopped on autotrader.com, found a reasonably priced 1999 Silver Spruce Mettalic colored Toyota Sienna with 68K miles and at 5 pm Naomi was driving home in it with the boys. Sam called it a "truck." We got it at Martin Nissan in Skokie, IL (10 minutes from where Naomi works). Free oil changes there while we own the car!
What this also means is that my primary car is once again a Saturn. I like my Saturn. I had to sell mine to help pay for school and we kept Naomi's. Now it's mine. This also means that I will have heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. Thank God for air conditioning;o).
Heidi will certainly be mad since she recommended that we purchase a mini-van a week ago when we left for Canada in the Saturn - the five of us with a car top carrier. Heidi, just be glad that Naomi sat in the back.
