Well, this is it - I'm now officially Selling My Car! Aww...as incredibly excited as I am to move to our awesome place in Boston, I am also really kinda sad to have to say goodbye to my car, even though it's only been 15 months... I'm definitely going to miss it, and the whole driving-standard thing (because I hear that you can only rent automatic cars these days, ugh, gross). It really was the perfect car for me.
But, on the other hand, I'll be glad to not be contributing to pollution, nor "throwing money away" on $3 (!) gas, insurance, payments, etc. Plus I'll be getting more exercise! So all of these things are benefits to selling. But I sure will miss the convenience...the whole point, though, was that I wanted to live in an urban area so I wouldn't have to rely on driving to get me around. I'm not blaming people who live in suburban areas because they drive; believe me, I know that the country was pretty much forced into developing highways over train systems! But for myself, I just really want to try to get away from needing a car.
Yeah, I know it'll be a pain in the ass when I come back to my parents' house and want to visit friends, but I'll have to deal. Hopefully I can sometimes borrow my mom's car, and hopefully my friends love me enough to maybe drive every once in a while (although I hate asking that!). :) We'll see. For now, I just have to get the car sold in the first place! I hope I can make a bit of money off of it, that would be nice...
Yesterday Dad & I spent over 2 hours washing, waxing, Armoralling, Windexing, shampooing, and vacuuming the car - it looks gorgeous! I was exhausted afterwards, but it was worth it. Now it's parked out front, and hopefully between that & the postings I've put online & in the local paper, I'll get some offers! (pleasepleaseplease)
Well, I think I'll leave you with some photos (taken this morning) of my car, so I'll always remember it, hehe. xoxo love you my little car!
