こんばんは。How’s it going?

Today I was in contact with the car dealer discussing financing and options, and he said they found the model I wanted, with the options I wanted, in the color I wanted and it would be delivered in the afternoon! And, the cost is less than the already great deal they were giving me before! There was only one thing we were worried about, and that was that the car was being delivered from Houston, and they recently had Hurricane Harvey come through.

I was assured by the dealer that any cars that were damaged in the storms would be either trashed or returned to the manufacturer as per Texas law, and that the car that was being delivered was probably built (in Japan) after the late August storm. But, I wanted to be sure (for peace of mind) and asked them to provide the vehicle history.

After a few hours, they sent me the document that shows the date of production, delivery, etc. And it was all after the storm had passed, so we’re in the clear! What a load off my mind. ☺️

Besides finding the right car at the right price, I need to decide what to do with our Honda Odyssey. The dealer’s trade-in offer was really low, so I went to CarMax for a free appraisal. Their offer was about double what the dealer offered, but it was still low. So I think I’ll try selling it on my own. Should be fun? We’ll see.

I’m excited, though, about the new car! If all goes as planned, I will check it out Wednesday and test drive it and make sure it is ok. I can’t wait!

Today’s photo is of the beautiful sky this evening. Now that daylight savings is over, the sky gets dark early. Such a strange feeling.

I hope you had a nice Monday.
