It is Saturday, and today is the day that we go and pick up my NEW VAN!

Well, okay, so maybe it isn't NEW, but it'll be new to me! I have been driving a 1998 Chev Venture that we bought in 2000. That van has been awesome; seriously. I don't know why they stopped making those, because I have loved driving it. I have used it like a truck, at times, because you can put the back seats down and PILE THE STUFF IN! HAHA!

Anyway, it has 169,000 miles on it, and I was planning on driving it until the wheels fell off, or the body rusted completely away, because that is just how I am. I don't need the best or the fanciest things in life; this baby was paid for, and I didn't want to incur any more debt. As fate would have it, though, my hubby's Uncle works at a very well-respected dealership about an hour away from us. He had called my hubs and told him about this van that had just come in, another Chev Venture, and he thought we might be interested. It is a 1999 model with only 49,000 miles on it and the asking price was around $5,900. Hubby told me about it and I said, "Hmmmmm.....sounds too good to be true!"

So, on his way to his Grandma's funeral this past Monday, he stopped and looked at it. On Tuesday, I stopped by there, on the way to teen daughter's appt. (that worked out great! Her dr. appt. was in the Really Big Town right next to the dealership's Big Town), and let me tell you what, it was love at first sight! I left my van there and drove that van to the appt. and back home. It drove like a dream.

Later on, when he got back from KA, Hubby checked it out thoroughy, and in the glove box, teen daughter found a paper that the owner had kept in the manual. This owner was very organized! He and his wife had kept track of EVERYTHING that was EVER done on this vehicle; every oil change, tire rotation, tire change, etc. They took such good care of this van, and it shows!

SO, long story short, we have decided to buy it, and with the trade-in of our very old, used, worn-out-van-that-was-used-like-a-truck!, the price will be $5,100. I'll post a pic of it when I get one! Now I just need a new name for it: I like to name my green van was, "The lean green driving machine!" :)


I have 2 new followers!! WOO-HOO! They signed up some time ago, but I am just now getting around to giving them a big Shout Out! I'd like to give a big My Money Mission Online welcome to:
  • Dazzled Beader Designs and

  • Stacie

I hope you both enjoy visiting my little blog and feel welcome here!

I'm off to get some work done before we leave to get the van; the green beans are practically taking over the garden; they are just loving this weather and the nice rains that we have been getting periodically. Thank you, God, for such a wonderful harvest!
