We finally got a car!!!

30 Mar

So, we have been sharing one car since we moved here. That wouldn’t be a bad thing, but our schedules are so different it makes for planning, daily.


Monday morning –  I would watch Ava & Bella, seth would take the car to school in austin.  Seth would come home from school and wait for Ava & Bella to get picked up.  Then I would take seth to work, then go to work myself.   Then I would head back to Seth’s work to pick him up and take him home.

That is just Mondays…the other days can be more complicated..depending on what time i had to be at work (at the outlet mall).

After much frustration, we ended up buying a Jetta.  Its a used Jetta with 70k miles on it.  Not bad for a 1986!!!!

We bought it from a local mechanic friend of the family.   The car was originally owned by a carny and it was never used..only around town when the carny was home.


It drives really good.   The power windows work.  It has A/C and heat.

What more could you ask?

It reminds me of my Datsun 510 – same color blue!!  🙂

    I wish I was there, so we could drive around in your new car.

    What will you name it?

    hmmmm…good question…
    My datsun was the Murf Mobile.
    Gotta think of a good one for the Jetta.
    Any suggestions?
