A New Addition to the Family

Nope, I'm not pregnant. But, Aaron and I just added a new member to the family.

Meet Henry! (a.k.a. our new Toyota Corolla)










As we all know, Josie (our Saturn SL-1) has been around the block more than a few times and is a tired old gal. She has 150,000 miles and has had a barrage of problems over the past couple years. We have really enjoyed not having a car payment, but when Josie decided to start stalling mid-drive, we decided enough is enough. We've been looking for the past few weeks and finally found a great deal on a 2007 Corolla LE. It drives really nice and only has 16,000 miles so it feels brand new! As far as we can tell, there are no hard feelings between Josie and Henry. Josie actually seems quite relieved to have a reliable guy like Henry take over the "main family car" position. We are planning on getting her running again (as long as it doesn't cost a fortune) and then keeping her in the family until she goes to her grave. And when that time comes, rest in peace little Josie, you served our family well.

It is always hard to leave a beloved car behind. I had to leave Sally in Kansas City. We were once a Saturn family...you and I.. how times have changed.

Um...wow. This really makes your car sound like a person. Is this Aaron's substitute for the family pet? :) Looks HOT!
