I did it! I finally took the plunge and bought a new car. I had been driving around the same old car without air conditioning for years and I could just not bare the sweat of it any longer. I got the car I had wanted for a while. I wanted something bigger than my old car, that sat a little higher off the road, and that would get good gas mileage. I test drove the Kia Soul before and thought it felt a little like a Barbie Jeep, but this time around it was a newer version and it just felt so much more comfortable. So I signed the papers and have been happy about it ever since. I didn't know that a comfortable commute was all I really needed to start the day off right. The comfort of air conditioning is such a luxury. I love it so much!!!
Also, I keep discovering new little features about the car that I wasn't aware of. When someone calls me, my car automatically hooks up to the blue tooth and I can answer the call through the steering wheel. When I want to make a call through the car all I have to do is press this button and say call… so and so and the car is really smart because it will reply back are you sure you want to call so and so?
I think a lot has probably held me back from finally getting a new car, fear of change and the unfamiliar, but honestly I couldn't be happier. I wish I would have gotten one a long time ago, but maybe it wouldn't be as special as it is to me now if I had. I can't wait to go on road trips. I want to drive it to the Grand Canyon and New Mexico to start. I guess I should start planning.
