The end of an era...

OK, maybe it's not really as dramatic as it seems... but to us it is bittersweet.  We sold our beloved 1983 CJ Jeep Renegade.  Malia is under the impression it was hers. 







She really loved to ride in it, especially with the top off.  Me.. not so much because it messes up my hair.  Not that I'm prissy or anything, I just don't look good in frizz.  I'm just sayin' 




We put the jeep up for sale recently.  We didn't really want to, but there are bills to be paid and it just was not realisic to keep it.  It's that ol doing the grown up thing.  Being grown is not always what it's cracked up to be.  Sigh ...

We had that feeling that this one was the buyer.  We had been meaning to take some pictures of her and her dad in their respective jeeps.  You know, for old time sakes..   So we did.   Good thing too, because dude came ready to drive her off!   So....here they are my wonderful hubby and darling daughter in their respective jeeps
Oh wait... I said respective jeeps... OK you two clowns!


There!  That's better!
Although in reality, she truly did act like it was hers!

We will miss our jeep...  Rest assured she noticed right away that it was missing...  We quickly distracted her.  Not sure how long we will be able to keep it up. 

Oh well, we still have her little Barbie jeep!

It's so hard doing the 'grown-up' thing. We moved this past weekend and it was so hard explaining to Grandson why we were moving. Our house was the one stable home he's had in his 3 years.

But, he got over it as soon as we went to dinner. Ah, youth! Wish I could get over it half as fast!

Oh, my! I'm so sorry you had to sell your beloved Jeep! I know the feeling. My ex husband owned a similar Jeep for a while, but I wasn't too attached to it.

I am, however, about to have to get rid of a '79 Trans Am that I can no longer afford to fix up. I feel your pain!
