The Second Car

My hubby and I have been married 5 years this July.  We have been living with just one car for that entire time! 

It’s been easier than you would think—thanks to things like carpooling and switching to a job closer to home—but I can honestly say it’s such a stress reliever to have a vehicle sitting in my driveway for me to use any time I need it! 

I no longer have to see if I can cram every errand into the one day of the week I have the car.  This is especially good since I now have a little babe who is only good for so long before he needs to eat again, and I can’t seem to get out of the house before 11 anymore (which means more time-consuming traffic and lines at the stores).

We saved up for this car for the last 3-4 years and it’s so nice to finally have it!  The process of finding and buying a used car is NOT easy; my hubby is very glad to be done with the task!  It’s a 2004 Dodge Durango, and it in good shape.  It’s super spacious which is what we both wanted (for hauling larger purchases home) and needed (for when we have more kids in the future!!)

Now we just need to clear out the garage so we can park it in there with the other car!  It’s a good thing we haven’t gotten much snow or I would be complaining about having to go shovel snow off it before I drive it!!

  1. Hooray for a new car! It looks really nice. That's what we're looking to get in the future as well! Buying used cars isn't fun... and we've only had to do it under stress. We went about 5 years without a second car as well but now we live too far from Martin's work and school to make it work effectively.
