Looking for a Mini-Van

It is official. My Saturn has finally gone to that big junkyard in the sky. I would like to take a moment of silence just to remember all of the good times.


OK, now that we are finished with that…we are looking for a new car. Well, actually we are looking for a mini-van, but we don’t know if we can find one in our price range. What is our price range? Well right now about 85 cents. So we are trying to figure out the finances part too.

I hate buying cars. I am sooooo ignorant of what they are supposed to cost, what to look for, who to go to. And I can’t shake the feeling the whole time that I am getting screwed. That is why we liked Saturn in the first place. You buy a new Saturn you get the same deal everyone else does. Period. I just out and out suck and negotiating. Mainly because I am going in with such a poor idea of what is going on.

Alright I will be honest I hate doing anything where I don’t know what I am doing. But Meredith and I exist on 2 totally different schedules so a second car makes life much, much easier. So I guess I will have to suck it up and start looking.

    I’ve remained quiet too long. I have to let somethings out that have been kept inside too long. When I graduated high school you made me feel like I was no longer wanted in the youth group. Why did you do that Shane? Especially after EVERYTHING my family has done for you. I was there when nobody else was. When everybody else didn’t understand or like what you were doing who fought for you? It was my family and me. Who were the first youth when you first started Calvary? I was one of them. You are one of the reasons i quit coming to church. But you probably didn’t notice anyway. When I did go you never even said one word to me. All those things I can forgive you for Shane, but what I can’t forgive you for is not being there when my mom died. Of all people you should know what it’s like to loose a parent, after all you lost both of yours. Sure you came to the house, but you never once checked on me. At the visitation you never spoke to me, and at the funeral the only thing you said was hey. I used to think you hung the moon. Now I don’t even know how you are. You once had my up most respect, but now I don’t even respect the fact that you used to be my youth minister. You say your heart breaks for the youth of Eufaula, but does your heart break for the youth of your own church?

    I just want to acknowledge this post. I am leaving it here because it is something that he wanted for everyone to see, but I will not be dealing with this directly on Nailscars.com. I will be dealing with it on a more personal level.

    (Payton, the only contact I have for you is MySpace. So I left you a message there)
