Thank you all for your kind words. It was very hard to lose two pets at once like that. But so many told me I would know when it was time, and it was finally time.
On the brighter side, look at my new toy:
I did it - I traded in the People Mover and got myself a cute little PT Cruiser! I absolutely love it! It still sits relatively high so getting in and out is as easy as the van was. There's a lot of leg room for everyone. And it's so CUTE!
I researched it heavily beforehand. I was a little surprised to find out the primary demographic was 51 year olds! And here I was feeling younger for driving it.
Darling Daughter actually WANTS to go places with me. At least for now!
And isn't it just so darn CUTE!
