New addition to the family

Our New CAR!!!!
2008 Dodge Caliber

My 1994 Mercury Sable kicked the bucket a few days ago (problem with the head gasket, etc.). Although the car situation brought on stress and uncertainty, my main thought was.... GOOD RIDDANCE! For the entire 3 years we've owned the Sable, it has had issues--constant mechanical problems. So we threw in the towel and decided to go searching for a car...

During the search, we found this cute Dodge Caliber. We weren't looking for anything fancy, just something reliable that would get me to/from work safely. To be honest, when we signed the million papers to be first time car owners, we weren't jumping up and down at all that night (we had sticker shock). We went home scared, dazed, and worried. This is the first big purchase we have made in our lives so far which made us wonder if we made the right decision. After thinking about it for awhile, I'm beginning to understand that these feelings will also play a part when we buy our first house as well. It's just scary realizing we are now adults, and have to make HUGE decisions.

Throughout the stress of the week, I am realizing once again that God ALWAYS provides. There may be things that cause us to worry, but God knows what we need at the time. I am thankful that I can depend on Him to get us through life situations.


  1. I am sorry you have had such a rough week but the silver lining is your shiny new car! Atleast you have a new car and wont have to worry about things falling apart as they usually do with an older car. Hopefully things start looking up. Love ya

  2. Yes, I agree. The car is my silver lining :) My attitude has a lot to do with how things are going... so i'm trying to have a better attitude towards life situations (dealing with people, unexpected things like this car issue,etc).

  3. And now that you are having a baby, it's great to have a reliable car!

  4. I'm so glad I considered a car that would fit carseats in the back too. haha
