SOLD

Thank freakin' goodness!!!!
We are officially getting rid of our Dodge Stratus today. We put it on Craigs List a week ago today and have had ONE call on it. Luckily that one call was THE call. Last Wednesday night a man called to come and see the car for his daughter who lives up in Washington for college. Apparently she had been looking for awhile when she was going to give up. Then she found our car. So anyway, her dad came and looked at it, started it and that was it. He also mentioned that $4000 was her limit. Benson said that would be fine. So anyway we didn't hear from him again until the next night. He called and said his daughter wanted the car and asked when we could take care of business. Of course we were thrilled and had to pinch ourselves a few times to make sure we weren't dreaming. Anyway, we are meeting him at the credit union today so he can pay his portion and we will pay the rest of our portion and then get the title!!!! How lucky is this girl to have her dad take care of all her business for her right down to paying cash for the car. How would it be to have an interest free loan on your car! And people say money doesn't buy happiness. (If anyone wants to challange me I will gladly take your money and see if it makes me happier to live a little bit more cushy of a life. ) Back to the subject because that is a whole other post, this girl is heaven sent because we have not had another single call of interest on the car and we needed to get rid of it. Over the past year we have put about $3500 worth of work into that car. So I am hoping that our financial curse will be over when this car leaves our hands! Just so you know, we did fix the water pump a couple of weeks ago (which cost $1600) before we tried to sell it so we didn't feel like we were handing someone our problem.

Congratulations! I'm sure it nice to have that big stinkin' monkey off your back!

I still think you guys would have been better off filling it up with gasoline and driving it into your apartment in Centerville and then collecting the insurance money on everything. That would have made the cross-country move a little easier. Seriously, congratulations.

No, we are not getting a new car. We will be doing the one car thing for awhile. We have done it before so this will be nothing new for us. Plus Benson works nights so it should work out really well. Of course there is always days where something changes like tomorrow Benson has to work during the day and I am supposed to work at Brooklyn's school but it will all get figured out.

Yea!!! You have Lot's of great memories in that car. But I'm sure you will not miss all the money you have put into it. Did that make any sense? It did to me anyways that's awesome!

It is so fun when you can finally get rid of something you really really don't want. Congrats!! To answer your question on my blog, YES!!! I posted the question mark in that spot because I thought whoever looks at the names evertime they go to a blog. I thought I would see how long it took for someone to notice. Apparently only an hour or so. Good job!!
