It was weird not working on the bathroom this weekend. The project was only 6 weeks or so, but it did take up my weekends! As promised after this was done, we were taking a peek at some cars. We have a Saturn wagon that we bought new in 2000. It’s an old car now. It has given us a lot of good years. We have close to 200,000 miles on the car and now it eats oil like I can eat Christmas cookies. We do want to keep it as a second car, though, for when John goes on trips so I can get around without having to rely on others.
We decided to look at hybrid cars as carbon footprint is important to us, as well as reliability and price. So, we checked out the Prius.
We were trying to decide between new and used. I really would rather have the Prius than the Prius C. We drove both. My first experience with a hybrid car.
The Prius C is the ‘budget’ model and you definitely can tell the difference. It is about $5000 less than the regular Prius. We also have the option of a new 2012 model, which would be less. However, there are limited options of what is available. We have a bit of decision making to do.
After driving, we headed out with a Groupon for lunch at Irish Times.
Breakfast for lunch? Yes please!
The weather was fairly depressing all weekend. It snowed all weekend, but not much in the way of accumulation. It is warming up into the upper 30s, but still pretty icky.
However, I do spy with my little eye this weekend coming up:
Hopefully that forecast holds and I will have my bike on the rooaaaddd! Not that I’m excited or anything.
It’s the first Monday of the month coming up and we will be doing an AIM post, so be sure to check back for that.
