Cars, cars, cars.

So it is about that time….time to find a different car for the 3 babes. SO sad to say goodbye to my car. I LOVE my car. But wearing a baby while driving is illegal. Isn’t it Britney? Rules, shmools.
For the record, I love the Yukon/ Tahoe. But need something with better MPG. I forget stuff. A lot. So I end up making double trips half the time which means I put on A TON of miles each year. Thus, sadly, gas guzzlers are out.
So we have kind of narrowed it down. I said I would take it sight unseen as long as C promised smoky ground and fun blue lights, but…..
Pigs still don’t fly and hell is still hot from what I hear. So I think it will be looking more like this….
only not as shiny, not as new, and most likely brown. 
The minivan, if you know me at all, is God working this heart down. I was joyfully {insert :)} submitting to my husband and asked him to make the decision. We shall see tomorrow or the next day, or next week if we still can’t decide what the verdict is.  For the record though, I was wrong on the minivan thing. They are pretty sweet afterall. C had me at automatic doors. (NO DOOR dings-whaaa?) And B loved that he could crawl all the way in the back and “not hear me”. A dream come true B, I know. 
I just don’t make decisions well, and love the drama of a new-to-me car. You could be hearing about this for weeks. Or you might have already been hearing about it for weeks. This is a BIG decision people! Sooorrry.
I AM thankful we have options. What a blessed place to be, to even have an choice as to what to cart kids around in. Thank you Lord for your provisions!

    Hey Meesh- so I am in the same predicament, I did have a Suburban for the weekend, luckily the financing fell through-God’s way of telling me I wasn’t being very practical. I even took a used Acadia for the weekend from my work. The Acadia I felt did not have enough trunkspace for football gear and a double stroller and the things that stay in our car-like folding chairs for Brendan’s practice. Once your boys start sports and you have your little princess, you will be most thankful about deciding on the Mini Van-we swore we were always too young and cool to ever drive. lol. I just paid off my car-which accomodates 7 people with Brendan in the back seat-so I am waiting until the New Year after my maternity leave to purchase my shiny new mini van. haha. Good luck to you on your decision.
