Mini-Van Mama.

When Kev and I got married one of the first major things we did was get rid of my crappy Volkswagen and we bought a Subaru Outback.

I love that car.

Love it.

It’s really the first car I’ve ever owned that I really loved in any way.

(Well, I did love my first car, but I only loved it because it actually was a car.  Not because a Nissan Sentra, that I affectionately called “the tin can”, was amazing or represented me or anything.)

Anyway, the Outback was my car.  And I love it very, very much.

But we parted ways this week.

Our break up has been a bit painful for me, but we really were just in different places in our lives.

Specifically, my life requires more room these days.

I could fit Tom, baby girl, my hub and my dog in my car — but it would be pretty cramped for Kevin.

Mainly because Kev already didn’t really fit in the car with us.

So, my Sube and I parted ways amicably and I moved on to a mini-van this week.

(The mini-van is my rebound.  But I think we may work out.)

It’s huge.  I feel like I’m driving a tank.

But Kev loves it.  Tom loves it.

In fact, Tom asks to play in it everyday.

Not going for a ride.  No, he actually wants to go in there and play and run around.

Yeah, he can run around in it.


It’s quite awesome.

I’m liking it.

I’m getting used to it, I should say.  It’s just so different!

But it’s good and now we’ll all be able to fit comfortably in one vehicle — so I’m thrilled!

Plus, the Sube and I will still be friends.

(And Kev promised he’d get me another one.)

((Once our kids are done with college.))
