Last weekend we sold my car. As most people know, I’ve kept the same car since getting my drivers license in 2006.
Selling my car was a little bit more emotional than I assumed it would be. Just thinking about it, I spent nearly a decade with my 2000 Pontiac Firebird but there are some things you just have to let go. Plus as most people know, I recently purchased a new (to me) car so there is no need for two cars.
Here is a brief history of Lorraine and I:
During high school I worked as a lifeguard and saved for a car. One thing I will always be grateful for was my parents teaching me how to budget and save for items you want to buy.
After shopping around with DadLOLZ, we found Lorraine. Talking to various used car dealerships was an adventure in itself. We test-drove her around and within an hour, I knew she was “the one”.
It took time to convince mom but ultimately she allowed me to buy the car.
Lorarine was with me during high school.
During work in Oswego, my move to Texas, my move back to Virginia and into New Jersey.
We’ve traveled 28 states and had our fair share of adventures.
She hauled all of my life possessions several times and even a mattress and box springs.
But it is time to say goodbye and relocate you to a new home.
It was obviously a little more difficult than I imagined but there comes a time in life that you must let things go. This is the best time and I know she is in a good home.
Questions for you:
What was your first car?
What is the most expensive item you have ever purchased?
For me, it’s my car Gretchen but some of those full marathons (NYCM) will set you back too. 😉
