Title: Car
Post by: Jean D on November 19, 2012, 12:39:45 PM
Hi All,

I just wanted to share with a few of my friends that I went out this weekend and bought myself a new car. I have been wanting to do this for a very long time, but have been reluctant to go out on my own and make the purchase. Up until this, I have never ever made a major purchase on my own. Beni was always there with me, advising and helping with selection and negotiations. But I did it...I did it all by myself, though I'm sure Beni was at my side. It will be almost a year since I lost him...but I have become so much more confident in my ability to do things on my own...something that is very difficult when you have done them together for over 40 years.

Oh, the purchase? A candy apple red, 2013 Chevy Malibu 2LT. A beauty. I would post a picture, but was having trouble uploading it.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone

Happy for you! Now, go out and enjoy it....plan a nice day trip!! Break er' in!  :icon_flower:
