I have looked out my window about 20 times this morning. Yes, it's still there. It's really there!!
Remember how I always wanted a Jetta? Well, I decided that I would "settle" for a Passat.
This a big deal for us. I have wanted a "new" car for a very long time. I'm not joking when I say that Erik's definition of new is anything after 1990. My definition is anything in the 2000's. Either way, I am happy to report that Sister Crisco has entered the 21st Century. We bought a 2004 VW Passat Sedan TDI off of Ebay a couple of weeks ago and it finally arrived last night from Maryland. It's a little nerve wracking to buy a car without test driving it first, but it's better than we thought it would be! This makes 4 cars total that we have bought off of Ebay. Yay for Ebay.
I can't believe that I get to drive around a car that isn't 19 years old anymore. Don't get me wrong, the Mercedes was great, but that car was a loud diesel. It became a running joke how many "concerned" people told me, "I think something is wrong with your engine" and I would have to say, "It's a diesel." Erik even had the employee at the Taco Bell drive-thru tell him that once and he was so annoyed, he just drove off without buying anything.
So, now I get to blend in with everyone else on the road. I get to have cup holders and window controls that are on the doors, instead of the center. I get to drive a diesel that whispers instead of roars. Now, the real question is how to keep it from getting trashed out by the kids. Maybe I will cover the seats with plastic wrap. I'm serious.
