40 Days of Thankfulness: Day Four

Today, I'm thankful for my "Cushie Car".

Since I started attending Cushing's events, I've always tried to rent a PT Cruiser. There's just been something about them that I liked.

A couple years ago, after my son was out of school, I was getting tired of driving the Mom-Carpool-Van everywhere. I think my mom was getting tired of stepping up into it, too. She doesn't drive anymore, so she relies on whatever vehicle I'm driving to get her to appointments. So, I was delighted when she offered to pay for part of it. She didn't realize it was going to be bright blue, though. I think she was thinking of navy or something more dignified.

Anyway, I had the car picked out, and the exact color I wanted and set off to the car dealership with my specs. They told me that the Cruiser didn't come in this shade of blue. I'm sure that they wanted to sell one of the colors they had on the lot.

I got back to them and told them that I found this car online and I could go get it myself. Suddenly the dealership was able to get it for me, too, so I won out. WooHoo.

I'm just loving this car. :)
