Oh Deer

Oh Deer

I’ve had a couple of nights of little sleep, so I was SO looking forward to going to bed early last night.  At 9, I headed to bed to read and unwind.  Tyler had a late meeting in Fayetteville (an hour or so away) so he was on his way home.  Well, at 9:30, I got the call.
“I’m ok, but…”
He hit a deer.  It was dark, raining, he was an hour away, and the car was undriveable.  Thank goodness my MIL picked up the truck, the trailer, and they loaded up the car and came home.  I wouldn’t have been able to tow the trailer really (I’ve never done it), but I could have picked him up.  But I’m glad I got to sleep while they messed with the car.
And I’m SO thankful that he is ok.
I’m also thankful for insurance.

 


Trading Wheels

So back in January, Tyler drove to Kansas City and picked up a new (to me) car.  I wanted something more fuel efficient and wanted to trade for something a little newer.  He came home with this: a 2012 Prius V.  
It’s JUST what I wanted, and it’s a great car.
We listed my old car for sale, but it wasn’t moving. I got this as a college graduation gift, and it’s been great…but it was just time to pass it along. 
So this past weekend, we took it to NWA with us and Tyler took it to Adventure Subaru to look at trading it.  Well, he found what he wanted: a 2012 Prius C.
Yup.  We now own the baby Prius and the big Prius.  A happy Prius family!  Tyler needed a great fuel efficient car to drive around for his insurance business, and he LOVED my Prius and wanted one too.  The C is more sporty, more compact, and just what he wanted.
So yesterday after work, we said goodbye to Roger the Rogue and hello to this new little guy.
And now to sell a couple of Tyler’s cars (yes, he now has 4 cars and a truck! an old Mustang, newer Mustang, a Miata, and the Prius)….so a couple of those will be going.  But I’m glad we got a great deal on the Prius, got rid of my Rogue, and are all settled for now.
What do you drive?
