Today I made what is probably the third biggest purchase one will ever make in life:

Yep, I bought an ’02 Toyota Camry – that nice red color, too. Those of you who know me know what an ordeal this was: the research, the questioning, the unbelievable process in the selling of my Taurus, the millions of phone calls to dealers all over New England looking for the best deal – it’s all over now. Toyota of Portsmouth (NH) should be commended for their up-front ways and no bullshit attitude. I did copious amounts of research (probably too much) and I’m pretty happy with my choice. I’m planning on this car lasting me 10-12 years. It’s odd when I think that I may have children at some point who will remember this car. Whew. Rock on.
