Howdy Peevers!!

I just wanted to drop by and say HELLO to all the peevers that I miss... which is everyone except TGIX. I also figured I would give you an update on my car search.

I am going to pick up my Brand New 2008 Chevy Equinox LS tonight. It's an AWD, and I got a good deal on it. I'm glad I'm finally getting, as my dad has been a ROYAL pain during all of this. He's the type of person to buy 8 cars that equal the price of one brand new one, and they will combined last not as long as the new one. Luckily my mom has purchased a brand new car from a dealer so I kinda have her "on my side" so to speak. It's not really on my side, but when he says "I wouldn't do it" I have her saying "I have done it".

As for financing, I have AWESOME parents that are helping me out. They had offerered to pay for the car in whole, and me pay them back, but I want to use this opportunity to help build my credit. I am getting a loan for half the cost, and then a loan from them for the other half. I haven't decided if I will go through the bank or dealer, I have to ask the dealer if there is a penalty for paying it off early, and if not then I will go through him. Believe it or not he is cheaper then my bank!!

Wish me luck everyone, and I will post pictures as soon as I can, maybe tomorrow. It's crazy, they are letting me take it home and I haven't paid them ANYTHING. I'm full of all sorts of emotions right now! This is my first BRAND new car, and the only other thing I bought "brand new" for ME was my computer. So I'm really happy.

It's amazing how far I've come since I left the house across the street from the crack heads!
