New Wheels

We spent the holiday weekend car shopping.  The plan was to do some leg work now, then buy a car in December, unless we found an amazing Labor Day weekend deal that was too good to pass up.  Well, we found one!

It's a fully loaded 2011 Ford Edge.  It was more expensive than I'd wanted, but it was the car that Brandon really, really wanted, and it really was a great deal, so we went for it. I think I was charmed as much by the immediate gratification as anything else.  It has been hard only having the one car, because I've been unable to run errands or make doctor's appointments unless Brandon was off, or could get off, from work.  (We've had to cancel a lot of appointments because he wasn't able to get away.)  And to have a car big enough to seat all of us comfortably!!  Brandon and I will actually be able to put our seats where we want them, rather than moving them uncomfortably close to the dash to accommodate the car seats in the back.  Not to mention the generous cargo space in the back, for strollers, groceries, and whatever else we want to put back there.
Oh, it is so very exciting!  Just this morning I had to take Elora to see the doctor (minor, but persistent, cough; she's fine), then we went to the Salvation Army store next door to look for treasures (Tuesday is military discount day), and this afternoon we're going to run to the grocery store.

And all before Brandon gets home from work.  Hooray!
