It is really beautiful sunny weather in Southern New Jersey, supposed to hit 80 today which is wonderful from the tough winter we all have had. I agree, the last 3 years have been brutal financially as well as health-wise for me, and getting this much needed new car is very symbolic, and theraputic for me. It's my first new car in well over a decade, and a fresh new vehicle can make one feel a little reborn. Thanks for your insightful comments.
I really hope that the stock markets can continue to improve over the next 6-12 months so that I can get out of a lot of my debts built up over the last decade.
