Oh Blogger, I've been neglecting you.

So, I know I lied. I got all wrapped up in buying a car/4th of July stuff and have been just way too busy.
Yeah, that's right, I bought a car. The truck was getting way too poor gas mileage for me (My guess was single digits in the city, and barely 14mpg on the freeway), so I decided to spend some money on a more reasonable car. Though I use the term "reasonable" rather loosely because of what I bought.


It's a 97 Chrysler Sebring Convertible lol. I only paid $1400 for it, and the outside looks rather brilliant, barely any dents, and only a couple of scratches. The only down side is that the rear window in the top has separated, and I suspect it leaks. We've only had immense heat ever since I bought it so I can't really check to see if it does. But I found lots of moisture in the trunk, and the rear seat bottom foam/carpets are also wet. So I guess the next thing I'm going to do is buy a new top (only $300) and call it good. It's also an automatic, which isn't my favorite thing but I'll survive. But it gets 28mpg on the freeway so I'm more than ecstatic!

It was a completely whimsical purchase that turned out to be not so bad at all. Has anyone else lucked out like that before?
