New Car Smell

I went last night with the intention of only test driving a car and ended up coming home with one. I was going to buy it no matter what, but I blame Dad for coming home with it last night. We were sitting discussing the car with the salesman and he had to call the buyer to make sure that the price we wanted for the 4Runner was ok. He agreed that it was. Dad hung up, then turns to me and asks, “I wonder if Bob wants it now then we can take the car tonight.” He immediately calls up the buyer who says he will come get it and bring the tags back to us. So they show up a few minutes later and take the truck. Then I realize I forgot my check book, so Dad calls their house just missing them to see if they could bring my check book back. The wife of the buyer, and the new owner of “Joe” the 4Runner, catches him on his cell phone and he heads back to pick up my check book. So in the end I drove home in my new 2005 Honda Accord EX.

I ended up going with the 4-cylinder because he was really peppy. I kept feeling like the V-6 was getting away from me. It is going to give me much better gas mileage, so I am certainly not going to complain.

While at the dealership I got a frantic call from my grandmother that my great aunt was bleeding and she couldn’t make it stop. I had to call my mother who ran over to my grandmother’s with gauze to see if she could help. They couldn’t get it to stop, so my Mom called an ambulance. Aunt Josie is now at the hospital because she eventually lost enough blood that she passed out. She had oral surgery yesterday, and the dentist just told my grandmother to apply pressure to stop the bleeding. My great aunt is on blood thinners because of heart stints that I believe I mentioned in a blog a few years ago. Hopefully she is going to be ok. All my love to the Aunt Josie.
