Well, after 8 long years in my company, it is time to say goodbye to the Jeep. Since we officially moved into our home here in Chula Vista the Jeep has been suffering. There were problems with the clutch and so it would make a terrible screetching noise whenever you would shift-especially out of 1st and 2nd gear. We ran it like this for a long time-which was quite embarassing, but we really didn't want to have to get a new car. But, alas the time has come, the Jeep has now been sold (well the man is coming tomorrow to pick it up to take to his brother in Mexico-it is like a foreign exchange program for the Jeep-it like it's owners must have a love for new adventures). So it is bittersweet the situation we find ourselves in, I am deeply saddened to see the Jeep go-it was my first car and I remember feeling a sense of accomplishment when we paid it off, but it just wasn't worth it for us to keep putting money into it, so we have to let it go! Here is an short ode to the Jeep:
Oh my dear sweet Jeep,
You were not cheap,
But you were always a blast
Although you didn't go fast
It really was fun till the last!
And now, a drum roll please....Please welcome the newest addition to our family:
A 2004 Honda Pilot!
As many of you know, we have been looking at Pilots for about a year and a half, so to have one outside in the Parking lot is a bit shocking. We feel very blest to have found a great car at such a great deal!! Here is to many more happy road trips (plus it seats 8, so you are more than welcome to join us)
So, here is a pic of the new and the old side by side...life sure changes!
(I love that Dallins' funny face is in the corner of this pic-it cracks me up! See, life is good!) Goodnight!
