Oh yeah, we FINALLY got our F-250! It is a 2001 with some miles on it, but it was kept almost immaculate! No rust underneath at all! AND we got a great deal on it so we could not pass it up. But now I am afraid to drive it around because we don't want people to think we have money, because we really don't lol! But it is nice to feel kinda special, see what being thrifty can get ya? ;-) We could have gone out and bought a brand new truck (it WOULD help stimulate the economy I suppose...eh) and a huge loan to pay on forEVER, but we chose to go used and we will run this thing into the GROUND (which will hopefully be in a LONG time!). Jim's current truck is just getting worn out (its a 1999, high miles) and we wanted something with a crew cab so we could fit the kid(s) more comfortably. Plus it had to have 4-wheel drive and a towing package for the horse trailer =). This will be Jim's truck, so now we just have to find me a cheap F-150 and sell my car (little bitty Toyota Corolla, good on gas, but I hate driving something so small! Plus I always have to rely on Jim and his truck if I need something BIG). Why don't I just drive Jim's F-150 you might ask? Well, 1 - because I am a loser and can't drive a stick, and don't really want to (I know, I should SUCK IT UP!) and 2 - because I would like to find one with a crew cab, again for Jimmy and any future kiddos. Plus, Jim said his truck is SENSITIVE and he doesn't want me to have to deal with it. Awwww! How sweet....or something... lol. So anyway....I am super duper Thankful that we found a wonderful deal on this lovely, grrr-owl, F-250. I can't wait to drive it, oh yeah!
