A Neeewwww Car!

Well, new to me anyways...
If you've been reading a while, you'll know that I have had a love/hate relationship with my car for some time. On the love side, it's paid off. On the hate side, it's a 2 door and a whole laundry list of cosmetic and mechanicial "hick-ups" and 170K miles.
So one of my very best friends is moving to Qatar, yes, quite literally half way around the world. She had to sell her car, and since I really needed one, she offered it to me at an incredible price. She currently lives 5.5 hrs away, so this weekend we both drove 2.5 hrs and met half way to pick up the car... I probably won't see her again for at least 3 yrs.
Oh ohohohh... Sorry, it's a 2005 Kia Sorento, silver, less than 100K miles and less than 5K dollars...

Yesterday I went to another friends house to help her organize... she has a cat, which I am allergic too, I took a claritan and headed over... 3 hrs later, I am an absolute allergic mess. Turns out I am NOT allergic to cats, I am HIGHLY allergic to cats... (my nose is still running 12 hrs later)


  1. Yay for the new ride !!! This one will suit you better than the other one I think.
    Sorry about the kitty freakout. I am allergic to cats too some not al. The kicker is some of them I am crazy allergic to and others just mildly. The mild ones make my nose run like crazy, the others make my nose run, my eyes swell, and I get all itchy all over. Plus them really aggravate my asthma. I feel for ya. I hope that your nose stops running and that you start to feel better soon. :-)

  2. Congrats on the new car! I have had a love/hate relationship with my car for two years...ever since I bought it. But thanks to a recent hail storm that totaled it, I'm able to get something new. I'm picking it up this week...a 2005 Ford 500, four door in in Titanium Green Metallic. I am so excited so I can understand your excitement. Sorry about the allergies. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. That was quite a deal! Good for you. Hope you and your friend will stay in touch.

    Thanks for dropping by my site and for your comment. I hope others will follow your lead and dig deep for an answer.

  4. Yea on the car! Boo for the cats!!
