The Good Stuff: MetroCard no more

This past Thursday HB and I bundled Indio up in his car seat, rented a Zip Car and headed to Long Island City for some car shopping. Our intention was to buy a used smallish SUV under $15,000. This is what we left with:

A brand-spanking-new Honda CR-V! It was a teeny bit more than we wanted to spend, but it was sooo pretty. It was fully loaded with all the options. It's the safest car in its class and of course, we couldn't skimp on Indy's safety.

In all, the car shopping experience wasn't that bad, but car salesmen live up to their reputation of being a bit slimy and trying to coerce you into getting "extras" that you don't really need. Oh, and the wait! It took us about 5 hrs to close the deal and another couple of hours on Saturday when we picked up the car!

Methinks the car needs an inaugural Faiza/Sheba shopping trip to Target....we must bring Indio and make our duo a trio!
