After brief negotiations I finally sold my Passat to a girl in her early
20's. It was sad to watch her "old lady it" out of the drive way. I
thought she was going to crash it before I mailed off the title to the
DMV. Since I know what area of town she lives in I find myself scanning
intersections in her area for my car hoping to get another glimpse of
it. When in actuality if I saw her driving it I'd probably cringe with

Luke and I have a hard time window shopping for cars. I sold my car on a
Friday and we were out "looking" the next day and came home a few hours
later driving a 2005 Honda Odyssey. It's a boring silver color, I'm
partial to black or white, but it has a nice charcoal grey interior with
leather seats.and more importantly it has heated seats. It doesn't have
anything else fancy except for the automatic sliding doors. I miss my
digital display screens and my temperature gauge.and the little ding
that tells me I'm almost out of gas.no dings or whistles on this car.
Okay well actually the other day it did whistle at me, but I think I
didn't have the sun roof closed. Oh yes, it has a sun roof. But when I
tried to use it today the sun came blasting down right into the eyes of
my sleepy children, so it may be best to use it on cloudy days.you know
every other day around here. lol

With maximum effort and willpower, Evan can get in all by himself.
The back seats can be folded backwards so that they become a flat space
for hauling. When the seats are up it's quite a deep pocket of space.
This blog is dedicated to Melissa and Stepfanie, two of my friends who
are more excited about my van than I am. lol Well I must say that even
if I'm not excited, I am at least grateful we could afford something
that looks decent and fits our family plus some. :)
