A new car!!! Oh.my.word. I am so excited. I’ve always talked about this car in that way that you talk about something you never think you’ll get. A Subaru Outback. Perfect for a dog and a kid and a girl obsessed with safety. Looking towards a move and a baby, we’ve talked about cars more than usual during the last few months. Toad has been researching this and that and talking about money as it relates to a mortgage and a new car, but she’s always planning and thinking and organizing and I didn’t think anything unusual was going on. But, on Christmas morning I found an Outback brochure in my stocking! Shut up! Five days later I still can’t believe it.
We’ve spent the last few days getting everything in order and making decisions about color and interior and all of that. Last night, I drove off the lot with my new car. I still can’t believe it.
