You may have been expecting this sneak peek yesterday, and I fully intended to provide an inside look at what’s planned in terms of content for this blog and some social media platforms, but………life happened.
And in this case, I wasn’t mad.
My beloved Pontiac Bonneville has been a major part of my life through big changes and exciting times. We were reaching a tipping point, though, where the car was starting to cost more than it’s worth, and we feared taking it on trips beyond my commute to and from work.
I’ve been in the market for a new vehicle for some time, and we had a test drive scheduled for yesterday. Never did I think we would leave my Bonne in the lot that day and drive away in a brand new vehicle, but that’s what we did. While I am extremely excited to have a new car and the smell and the perks and the bells and whistles and the peace of mind…it felt like I left a piece of me sitting, sad and lonely in that parking lot.
My husband thinks I’m silly for being emotional about a car. Have you had to trade in memories for a new vehicle? Was it tough or am I over thinking things as usual?
