saying goodbye

I am a loyalist.  A keeper.  And it's hard for me to let things go.  That's why this week it was really hard for me to say goodbye.
to a car.
I'm not even a car person.  Especially to a sports car when I'm nearing a magical age {more on that one later} and have two kiddos.  But it was my first car purchase.  College graduation.  Nearly {ahem} 20 years ago.

But it's time to let it go.  Especially when we HAD to drive the car to a sports practice and the kids were asking me to park at the very back of the parking lot.  I'm not sure if they were more embarrassed by the rumble from the muffler or the cool sleek design.

So goodbye sweet camaro.  Thanks for the  memories.  And a great big AMEN from the kiddos and dad.  They put up with my "can't let it go" attitude long enough.

Also, a congratulations to ms. Kylie Kreikemeier! She won some awesome loot from some pretty sleek sponsors over at The Anderson Crew.  Can't wait to stitch a little something up for you ms. kylie!

  2. It's an understandable thing to get attached to! :) At least you got a photo for memory's sake. ;)

  5. I'm ok with saying good bye ~ to a car anyway ;) I just have a hard time getting use to the differences a new one has (only 2 cup holders instead of 4 ~ totally threw me off!)

  6. I feel your pain... Sometimes I get attached to inanimate objects, too! Like my stuffed kitty form childhood that I still sleep with!

  7. I am so sorry for the loss of your car. I had a 1988 Toyota Camry with over 200,000 miles, but it was hard to get rid of. I loved the way it drove and it always felt so safe.

    Did you get another car to replace it?
