A month of gratitude: day 3

Today I am thankful for our new car:

The thing is, my dh and I have horrible luck with cars.

We have always bought used cars but without fail...the three cars we've purchased in our 5 years of marriage, have been lemons.

Literally, a month or so after buying our new used car, a light would come on, a crazy spudder sound would occur, or it would simply break down.

And every time I would get such anxiety because 1)being stranded on the side of the road freaks me the heck out and 2)it was never a simple, cheap fix.

Anyways, so last month we decided that enough was enough when our most recent newest used car's (that we hasn't even had for a year) light came on.

We went and traded that lemon in and bought the new car we had always talked about.

So yes, we have a new car, we have a superb warranty and we are stress free when I comes to our car situation (for now at least!!!).

I am so grateful that my husband works hard and provides for us so that we are able to purchase a new car.

I agree! All of my used cars have had something tragically wrong with them. But my used minivan is da'bomb! YOu will soon be trading that in for a mini van! :) LOL
