A good day!
So my daughter calls me yesterday. We were supposed to get together this evening so she could get some stuff from my apartment. she was having car problems. Her car is a 10 year old Honda Element that my ex and I owned before the divorce. It has 250,000+ miles on it. The struts, shocks and brakes all needed repairs and it was going to cost her over $2000 to get it fixed.
The reason she called was to ask for my advice. It really is the first time since my divorce that I feel as though she respects me and my opinion. We talked about and she actually followed my advice to not spend the money on this money pit and instead look into buying or leasing a new car.
So today, I went with her and her new husband to look at cars. hey had already decided on a Honda Fit. So I went on a test drive with her, and took it for a drive myself. I grilled the sales man and asked a lot of questions. I think they made the right choice and I was so happy to be a part of it! It was my babies first new car and to be there as an active participant in the process was awesome!
At the center of every moMEnt of my life is ME!
