Tomorrow the Purple Heart will tow my van away. I cleaned it out today and didn’t mice get in it and leave a gift! It’s right in the driveway too. Brian took off the license plate. I got on auto*trader’s.com and a place up in Lancaster has a few vehicles that I am interested in. One requirement-I have to sit up a bit higher than a sedan, because I’m only 5′ 2 1/2″ tall. I am looking at Ford* Escapes or Explorers and Kia* Sportages. This place has a Sportage for dirt cheap, but it has over 100k miles on it. We buy used, never had a new car. My brother the mechanic says you shouldn’t look at the mileage as much as the upkeep, etc of the car. I just do not like rust or holes. We’ll see. I feel a bit blue as the van is the vehicle Sean learned to drive in. I remember letting him drive around a parking lot ‘for the first time’ about 6 or 7 yrs ago. He was more than ready to drive, but still has issues with parallel parking.
We need to gather some funds together first anyway. I saved up a wee bit so far.
Some of my Christmas decor is in a big pile in the living room-mostly pillows and stuffed animals. They all go in those big Hefty bags. The tree will gradually get unloaded. I took the wreath off the door (need to replace it). Once I start taking stuff down, I want to get it over with.
