I’m an official “soccer mom”

I am now a station-wagon driving, stay-at-home, soon-to-be carpooling, soccer mom.

We spent the better part of the weekend buying a new car. Our beloved Durango is/was making some crazy “suspension-like” problem sounds. So instead of putting yet more cash into the truck, we decided to call it quits. It has been a good vehicle, but it is starting to get to the point that stuff is going to start going on it and we’ll just be pouring more money put into it. Since we had already put over $3K into it in the last 6 months (and that was just air conditioning problems!) we decided to get out while we were still (kind of) ahead.

So we shopped online and Jamie negotioated a killer deal on a new Volvo stationwagon. I’m so very excited about it. We pick it up tomorrow. Emma still doesn’t quite understand what is happening even though we keep telling her that we are getting a new car. J. said it is kind of weird to be sentimental over a car, but it really is the only car that E. and A. have known.

I’m sure as long as the DVD player and Nemo (Me-mo, Mee-mo, MEEE-MO!) make it into the new car the girls will be happy in the new car, too.
