Things on the car front are moving right along. Here's where we are so far:
--Got rental car yesterday
--Looked at a few used cars at Carmax yesterday
--Got pre-approval for car loan from my bank
--Getting lots of suggestions from family, friends and coworkers
--Looked for title, couldn't find it
--Picked up replacement title today
--Scheduled car shopping outing for Saturday
The forward momentum is certainly helping my mood. I still don't like the idea of having car payments again. Car shopping, while I like looking at and test-driving cars, is not on my top ten list of fun things to do. Especially when it's "under the gun" so to speak. Only once in my life have I been able to look for a new car at my own pace. It was such a luxury.
But there's no getting around it. I need a car. An inexpensive car--both to buy and to own. But I will get by, always with a little help from my friends--and a knowledgeable nephew.
