I know that some of you have been following my “adventure” of a woodworking vacation which started with a car accident. Well tonight I’ve put it to rest and bought a replacement car. I had forgotten how horribly boring and draining looking for a car was. I’m glad it’s not something I experience every day.
I was leaning toward the Honda Civic Coupe—- but after driving it, I did not like how it felt or how small I felt behind the wheel. So in the end I settled on a Honda Fit. It’s actually a pretty cute little car. It has just about as much hauling room as my Santa Fe when I put the seats down which solves my issue of finding a car that I could also haul the occasional lumber purchases home in. Also, I’ve been having trouble getting in and out of my Santa Fe because of my legs so this car solves that problem as well as it is lower to the ground. I would have kept my Santa Fe until it fell apart despite the issue of getting in and out——just because I hate to trade in a perfectly good car. I guess this is one of those little things that you try to use to convince yourself that things happen for a reason.
So thanks for following along and sending along encouragement———I’m just glad this part is over!
