subaru i love you
Subaru is a Japanese word meaning "unite"- it is also the name of a cluster of six stars, which the Greeks called the Pleiades - part of the Taurus constellation.
Did you all know that?
ok so I just got my dream car!!!!! I have always wanted a Subaru Outback...Joette and I both agree we think we love Subarus so much because of Bryon's love for them. He was the first person I called as I was driving the car through Parley's Canyon...nothing like the little sister trying to get her big brother's approval...still to this day.
I belong in a Subaru Outback...I belong in Park City too- (that is where we bought the car- and I didn't want to leave that place)- Chay always worried he was marrying a tree hugger...well not quite but I did bring up the idea the other night that we should just pack up and move to a national park somewhere to work...he didn't like the idea all too well -but anyway...
I just love my new car. But it is the first automatic I have driven for a long time so I keep trying to push the clutch in...the guy we bought it from was a typical subaru lover himself. His name was Wayne. He made mention that he already owns 4 subarus and the only reason he was selling the Outback was so he could go buy a brand new one. It is a 1997 and he was the first owner. Perfect! After signing the papers, Chay gave Wayne a ride home. He noticed Chay's mountain bike in the back of the truck and said, "I have a Pro Flex bike in our basement...we haven't used it for 2 years- do you want it?" What?
He gave us a really nice dual suspension mountain bike! He kept the seat but still....um- it has been nice doing business with you too Wayne- He was such a unique kind of person. He absolutely loved Julia- so I need to write him a thank you note for the bike and mail back the really cool CD that was accidentally left in the cd player...
ok so for the debt diet update: so we sold the CRV and made more than we owed which turned into a good down payment on the subaru! We just climbed ourselves out of $3,200 dollars worth of debt! Our car payment is now $100+ dollars cheaper now and so that extra money will go towards smaller debt-(Dave Ramsey's snowball effect)- and I get paid tomorrow for my first month of delivering papers...I think Julia will finally be paid off...she has been a pain all around- just kidding- I obviously love the girl.
I am going to call into the Dave Ramsey show one day...yes I will.
