So Long, Old Car
Our first big goal for 2014 has been accomplished: replacing my 11-year-old, nearly 180K miles car! Believe it or not, up until yesterday I was driving my first car, purchased after my freshman year of college. It served me well and still ran great, but maintenance costs were increasing and since Sean's car is the same age, we thought it was time to replace at least one of them.
Buying a car was both easier and harder than I expected. Negotiating the prices wasn't quite as awkward or painful as I expected (though it was tough to make decisions with salesmen watching!), but the paperwork and time it takes is sooooooooo tedious. I'm so proud we finally got it done, though.
Next goal: Figure out where to live!
