Happy Anniversary to Me!

If you have been with me a while you know that 2011 was a really bad year.  The nice thing is it is all over…..one of the casualties of Wayne losing his job was my transportation.  It worked out OK until Wayne ended up with a job 35 miles away, so there wasn’t anymore dropping him off at work if I needed the car.  Since April of 2011 I have been carless ( is that a word?) lol

Wayne has been doing his due diligence on the internet and talking with a lot of sales people, and since yesterday was… 1.) the end of the month and 2.) our 33rd anniversary he left early in the morning to find me a car…..and look what he came home with!

Drum Roll please……

It is sporty, and fun to drive.  The ride is incredible, you never feel a bump!  A with a peppy 4 cylinder I get great gas mileage.

We were always told wait until the end of the month, they want to get rid of inventory, not only that but the 2013’s are out….while my husband was there they sold 6 more 2012 Malibus!  And there was more than one rebate offered also!  There was a couple waiting to see which one of the two that were left Wayne didn’t want, and they snatched up the other one.   Wayne said it was funny watching people…..

So Thank you Wayne for a beautiful 33 years and a lovely new car….I guess I’ll keep you around! :)

aww, happy belated anniversary Sandy and congrats on the new car! I love the interior, looks very sporty. I got a new car the end of last month too. I desperately needed one. My old Honda van had over 200,000 miles on it and we were constantly putting $$ into it. I got a Toyota Rav 4. It was not what I wanted but now that I have it, I love it. Have a great weekend, Nan
