And another one bites the dust...

...another bill that is!

I just wrote the check for the last payment on my car. I can't believe it's been 5 years since I got that car, and I can't believe it's finally mine!

I've had a love-hate relationship with my car for a couple years.

I LOVE that it has lots of space and call haul a lot.
I LOVE that it's cute and sporty and still a 'station wagon.'
I LOVE that it gets okay gas mileage - although not as good as some cars!
I LOVE that it's the first car I've ever owned myself!
I LOVE that it only has 80,000 miles on it and should run longer.

I HATE that it's given me a lot of problems.
I HATE that I've had to put quite a bit of money into fixing things that shouldn't need to be fixed.
I HATE that the problems I've had have been bigger than I wanted.
I HATE that the brakes STILL squeak.

But, all in all, it's a good car. Now I can just drive it into the ground - so hopefully with maintenance and luck it'll last a few more years!


  1. Wow! I remember when you got that car! I can't believe that! :) CONGRATS!
