Our Newly Car-less Family (for now)

We did it! We sold the car! It was a little bit sad, but after walking into the dealership this morning we walked out, a little over an hour later, with a check. It's funny to think that the check is equal to more than we've made in a single year for several years.

It will cover our moving costs and the costs to buy a used mini van when we get to Florida (yay!).

I was surprised at how great the dealership was. We didn't really expect to sell it to them when we went down to talk with them after they emailed us (they saw our craigslist add). We figured they would offer us thousands of dollars less than the ad. However they had a check list which they went through and after crunching the numbers we pretty much agreed on the price (it was more than I'd even planned on asking on Craiglist originally... Paul convinced me to ask more!) and that was that!

We borrowed Nani's car to get home (after stopping by Joann's which was having an amazing sale that when combined with my 20% off sale items coupon meant we got a lot of fabric for next to nothing!).

And now we're one step closer to law school! I can't believe how quickly this summer is going by! It's bitter sweet...


  1. Wow! That's great news! It must be such a relief to have at least that part of the process complete.

  2. Congratulations on your blessing! One less thing to worry about.

  3. God is so gracious with His blessings! :) What wonderful news for you and yours!!!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
