major purchase

Merry Christmas to Me….And Happy Birthday….And Happy Valentines…

on December 11, 2008

I did it. I still can’t believe it. I really did it. OMG! I did it!

I bought a new car. And I don’t mean new to me which has been the case with every car I’ve ever had in the last 20 years (I’ve been driving for 20 years?!? *faint*). I mean I bought a NEW car. NEW NEW.

I’m so excited and worried and then excited all over again. LOL! Last night I kept looking out the window to make sure it was still there and that I didn’t dream the whole thing. And then I checked again this morning. It was still there!

The details. It’s a 2008 Pontiac G6. Midnight Blue. Very cute little sedan that runs like a dream, has a huge trunk and a killer radio. The radio being the most important item on the list. I have to get used to sitting low again as I’ve been driving trucks for four years, but I’m so happy. It’s like this car was made for me. It feels right under my fingers and even a co-worker told me this morning that it looks like a “Terri car”. I’m not sure what that means, but I’m taking it as a good thing.

Here’s the picture. Isn’t she pretty? And that’s Kiddo playing Vanna. She’s pretty cute too.

Since this is going to be my Christmas/Birthday present to myself for the next six years or so, I figure I’d better enjoy it. Have you ever surprised yourself with a big purchase? Any spontaneous buys in your past that you still shake your head about and wonder what you were thinking? Any one jealous that I don’t have a husband I had to come home and explain this purchase to? LOL!
