Momentous Occasion

Well, sort of.

My car reached 100K last weekend. I have never owned a car long enough to get to that many miles. I am very happy and proud to have had this car, deemed "Goth Girl" by my girls, for this many miles.

Even if she's in a state of minor disrepair: my passenger window dropped over the summer and has been held up by a piece of cherry since. And her speakers aren't so hot, and she's kind of loud when she idles...and let's not forget that she shakes a bit going up a hill at 25 mph.

But we've been through a lot: the accident in 2007; the break-in at Shelley Lake; the Spring Break excursions I take my girls too in it. And how I've made it an extension of myself through the art of bumper stickers.

I hope she doesn't give up on me and that we have a great many more miles together. I just can't wait until I get that window fixed.
