Car

As many of you know back in May we had to sell Jared's 1999 Isuzu Rodeo, for the past several years we have spent thousands of dollars keeping it going and emissions passable for registration. This year when we discovered the computer was going bad and the air compressor had gone out on the air conditioner Jared finally admitted that it was no longer worth fixing.

For the past 2 months we borrowed his parents extra car while he looked for a new car. He really wanted a truck, but with gas prices being almost $4/gallon he decided to go with a smaller car. After much research, we have a new car. A 2008 Toyota Yaris, bright blue, hatchback. I call it the bubble car and I think Jared looks weird driving such a small car, but I'm very happy with the gas mileage and the way it drives.

These cars are in such high demand that we actually had to put money down on a car the the dealership was supposed to get, but had not even been made yet. Jared reserved the car at the beginning of July and we were finally able to pick it up this week.
