That sucks about the battery, but AWESOME about the paid off car! I remember sending in my last check (back when I… um, had money to send checks with) and it was an AWESOME feeling!

My Darling Husband still does that with our 93 Honda Civic del Sol.  We have one of those portable battery chargers in the trunk because we have killed the battery more than once!!

a paid off car is the best! mine is paid off though it’s time to start looking for a new one and i’m sad. i’ve never had a car payment so i’ve definitely been spoiled!

and i left my lights on all day once too. ugh, hearing that clicking noise instead of the engine was the worst!

my car is at the repairers (my paid for car so i know how you feel) so i have a brand spanking new loan car from the smash repairers and its black and its diesel and i hate it….. did i mention its a automatic so because i turned off the engine while it was in “drive” i refused to let me take out the car key from the ignition

15mins and 2 phone calls later i get told “put it in park” and it worked – key removed….. d’oh! as homer would say

Well congrats on making a better financial decision for yourself and environmentally friendly one too.  Doesn’t it feel great to not have a car payment?  And coming from a Camry owner myself, it will last as long as you take care of it, I love mine.

eek! Congrats on downsizing 🙂 and I’m glad you found such a good trade in (trade out?)!

Sucks about your lights though… Have you heard about the new jump packs they sell? They’re like jumper cables minus the other car! They’re supposed to be sweeeet. When I got my brother jumper cables as a gift last month, the guys at the store tried to sell me a jump pack instead – I told them I didn’t love him that much though 😉
