We went shopping for a new minivan yesterday. We found one that we liked, at least we liked how it drove. The color was pretty close to hideous. I mean, it was bad. As the wife said, it looked like blue Scope. Perhaps it will still be there next week, but perhaps not.
But we realize now that we can buy a car, we just can't really afford to buy one and do much else this summer. The buddy I was looking to go fishing with is having trouble finding a free weekend, so I probably won't get offshore to go fishing. Since we're spending the money we have on the van, I won't be going up north to the cabin.
I'm still looking at trying to get myself a job up in the Pacific Northwest after I graduate, but I need to do a little more searching. I also think I'm going to start looking up in the midwest, as well... We'll see.
