After quite a few false starts, I think I am finally ready to buy a new car. Well, not “new” but new to me.
I’ve known for a while that I need to retire the clunker I’m driving. I just haven’t wanted to make the decision. (That’s true of a lot of things lately, I just don’t want to deal with them, so I don’t.)
My poor brother tried to get me to speed up this process. He looks for some good used cars and took me looking (and test-driving) a few times. He didn’t get that unless I am ready, nothing was going to happen.
That was weeks ago and he’s finally descended into a look of disgust every time I tell him “I’ll get right on it” in response to any query about the financing or selection of a new car.
I know it’s happening now because I actually got the financing through the bank and have a preapproved used car loan with which to shop.
Next stop: car selection!
