Nine Years Ago…

NINE years ago last night, (Dec 20, 2006) in Orlando, I bought my first new car in more than fifteen years.
I was married to someone else, and my kids were 7 and 4.

And I bought the first year of an upgraded model, which you shouldn’t do.

I didn’t need my then husband to co-sign the note, as I had my previous used car, because I was working again.

That car, my 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe, is in my driveway with 77,190 miles on it. And it’s been one of the best cars I’ve ever had. I’ve never had a car this long : next longest is five years.

If you’d told me, back then, that I would still have it, and that my now 16 year old older son would be learning to drive in it and I would have said you were smoking crack.

I just might have it till the wheels fall off. My dad would be proud of me!
