I paid off the JEEP today...
We now own, outright, a 2003 (i think, maybe 2002) JEEP liberty, green.
It has stains on the seats from countless spilled drinks.
It has worn out floor mats.
There is a big dent in the cargo-area door (hubby backed into a pole)
The back passenger electronic door lock is haunted (sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't).
The heat and AC is either ON or nearly off....
but, it is all ours.
It is also a lot of fun... we've taken it some amazing places. We've camped out of it, moved in it and nearly been stuck in it many, many, many times.
It has never left us stranded and it still looks good.... even the dent isn't really obvious :).
and.. the best thing about it is that it will bring hubby home on Thursday for a full 10 days!!!
