Back so soon? Well friends, it looks like the first couple of days of 2018 were kind of a bust.
I tried to see the Rose Parade floats and hike… but my radiator had a huge crack and my engine overheated. Looks like I’ll be spending $ on new parts and then possibly selling the car. It’s time – the car is 11-12 years old.
If I get a new car, it will be the first one I pick. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved the ’03 Jeep Liberty and ’06 Honda Element, but I’ve always wanted a Subaru. My second choice is the hatchback Hyundai Elantra, which I drove 1,500 miles on my Pacific Northwest road trip and I believe in Arizona too.
I was stuck at home for 2 days and will be for a little longer.
But I did come up with my goals:
- Dry January – No drinking. A few of us are doing this so I’ve got “sponsors.” Haha
- Make coffee at home – Saving money for a new car, or saving money in general.
- Date more than I did last year, which will be easy since I went on ZERO dates last year.
- Keep in touch with friends. I’m making a list of the ones I need to keep in touch with most.
