Little Known Fact About Me

I still remember that day like it was yesterday. My dad and I rode to the Chevy dealership and test drove a 1994 Chevy Lumina Minivan. I loved the long windshield and the nice roomy interior and even the teal green color. However unfortunately I also remember the way his face looked when we got denied for our perfect family car. I swore to myself someday I would have that family car no matter what it took.

For the past year we have battled with our VW passat and for the past year it has won. We told ourselves this year we would not buy another car. However one evening as Ro and I drove home parked on the side of the road was our car. It was a 1994 Oldsmobile Silhouette. I came home and did some research and found out the car was priced decently. We loaded up the kids and called the guy and did a test drive. The van drove like a dream. Ro and I did not want to appear to excited so once we walked in the door I told him I would offer $1200 for it. The guy countered and offered $1250. I would have been stupid to walk away from that.

We picked up our van today. It is everything I could want. Heat, air, and lots of room plus decent gas mileage. I keep teasing Ro now about filling it up with kids. That is what soccer parents do right? Yep I am on my way. Future soccer mom and loving every moment of it including my little stick family on the back of the window. 17 years later and I finally got my family car and my kids are loving every second of it.
