'Ode to my baby...poor, poor baby

Well...it's a sad, sad day for me. I just got back from saying good-bye to our sweet Jeep and got everything out of it. Yep, it's finally official. She is beyond repair, totaled, and will be demolished tomorrow (sniff, sniff).

I'm not afraid to say that I sat in her and cried for a little bit. I guess I also have had a lot of stuff going on lately with my granny dying, house shopping, and other issues. It just all came to a head today, while sitting by myself in my totaled Jeep. (Joe is playing golf in Austin for work, poor guy).

She was our first car as newlyweds and we took such GREAT care of her! We were planning on keeping her until she would eventually die of old age...NOT a collision. So, there you have it. It was also difficult because on the inside, NOTHING was wrong - not a scratch, she looked like new! And the front damage doesn't look THAT bad, but she was all torn up underneath the hood. Poor baby...

Oh, and after we pick up our insurance check tomorrow, we have until Monday to get our rental car paid for...yep - they stop paying for our rental car on MONDAY, this COMING Monday! ahhh. We do NOT want to be pressured into buying a car, but at least we already know what we want.

As soon as the Jeep Commanders were showcased last year, we have planned on purchasing one as our next vehicle. (What can I say? We are huge JEEP people!) We would like to find a Black 65th Anniversary Edition Jeep Commander. (But more than anything, I wish none of this had ever happened) :(

So, wish us Happy Car Hunting...we are on a limited timeline!

Oh Suz,
That stinks that you are having to go through all of this, but at least you know what car you want. I really hope the guy who hit you doesn't get off easy. On another note I love the family pictures!

Poor car! The new one is pretty, though! Update us on the court situation. So sorry you're having to go through this!

---STILL CRYING... enough of the waterworks already! I can't imagine what it will be like this year at Christmas....
WITH LOVE, Jo and Family
