remember how bryan’s car broke down in november? and we were going to fix it?
well, we never did. and we figured if we’ve gone this long, 5 months already, with only one car and not really missed it that much, then we must not really need two cars.
when we talked to my dad (who sells cars now), he told us the cost of getting the car fixed would be just about even with what we could get for it if we sold it, if we’re lucky. so we took his recommendation and sold it to an auto repair company, for more than we would’ve got if we’d gone to the hassle of fixing it then selling it.
it really hasn’t been so bad on one car. its inconvenient sometimes, but if we plan our weeks right then usually we don’t run into any scheduling issues. and if we save up each month what we were paying for insurance on the car, we should have enough to get a used minivan in a year or two, which we’ll likely need with our ever-expanding family.
it was a little sad to see the explorer go though. lots of good memories with that car…seeing it on campus meant bryan was on campus! packing all the belongings that would fit in it and driving up to boston after we graduated. driving it around town when we lived at the seminary. roadtrips all across tennessee, arkansas, kentucky, to boston and back.
goodbye car, you served us well!
