Oh my dears, what a day.

I went to the Audi dealership. I found a car I wouldn't allow myself to fall in love with until I knew it could be a possibility. We were about $120 higher than what I'd hoped, but this was of course the first round of negotiations. I knew they could come lower, but not to the level I'd discussed with my husband. I ended up leaving the dealership and went to the Subaru dealership to see what they could do for me lease wise, as that's what I'd had before. They wanted $100 more a month than my previous lease. What??? Or they'd sell me my car at 8.5%. Whaaaaat??? The Audi dealership was willing to get me in at 3%.

That said, the Audi is the better deal. I can afford it. I just want my husband comfortable with that decision. I think he is, even if it means a bit more per month (and I'd own it versus a lease). Their warranty is AMAZING. Up to 100K in miles and then 2 years after that. WOW! So loves, it looks like I may get that Audi after all! I hope so!!

Tonight I had a political fundraiser to go to. I almost didn't, but was glad I did. It was, however, a spaghetti dinner. I don't know WHAT it is about Democrats and spaghetti. I'd only had 400 cals today before I went. I didn't hold back. I didn't eat everything on my plate but feel absolutely stuffed!I figured part of what people need to see is that a normal night out isn't unheard of post protocol. After weighing in today, I was clearly going in the right direction scale wise. Life happens. We need to be able to go with the flow and get back to healthy habits for the most part. It's part of the balance.

Please think sweet Audi thoughts for me. I am ready for a new image, and to take care of all neglected corners in my life, including debt. I'd love to have the car paid off THIS year. :)

I think you will be driving yourself home in a new Audi!

I want a "hot mom car".

Maybe its not the higher payment the husband is worried about..... it's his the combination of his HOT new wife in the HOT new car :)

Sounds like you have made your decision, and it is just a matter of picking it up and driving it home!
