Minivan Momma once again

Day 16 - New - Bye bye Yukon, back to a Chrysler Town & Country! #febphotoaday #newcar

After much deliberation we decided to get rid of my Yukon and go back to a minivan. 5 years ago I was begging for anything other than a minivan after owning a Town and Country and a Voyager. That was right at the time that crossover vehicles came out and we bought a GMC Acadia which I owned for 2.5 years and put only 20,000 miles on. I traded that in for the Yukon back in December of 2009 – remember the crazy day we went for an oil change and came home with two new cars? That was insane and I still can’t believe we did it. Ken still has the Camaro and we do enjoy driving it when the weather is nice. (Right now it’s under a cover in the garage.) I loved my Yukon dearly, but the trunk space was atrocious and the payment was double what I really should be paying for a car considering I drive on average 6,000 miles a year. I had my Yukon for 27 months and only put 14,000 miles on it. CRAZY!! (A luxury of working at home!) So we went back to a minivan and I have no complaints. I am sort of past that stage of caring what car I drive and just want something comfortable that my kids can all fit in, I can toss lawn chairs into the back for the kids sports, and I don’t have to worry about the groceries falling out the back when I open the tailgate. I’m really loving the hard drive on the radio. How awesome to be able to upload all my favorite songs and play them with the touch of a button. No cords to plug in my iPhone or iPod, it’s great.

My most played songs right now are:

In for the Kill – Skrillex remixSkrillrex is amazing!
Wild Ones – Flo Rida with SiaUpbeat fun song!
Every Teardrop is a Waterfall – Coldplay Love Coldplay, best concert I’ve ever been to. OMG, that was in 2008. Wow, time flies.
Cosmic Love – Florence and the Machine – I’ve loved this song every since it was played in the commercial for the movie Water for Elephants.

Too funny, these songs really show how my taste in music is all over the place. They are all so different from one another.
