I would like to take a moment and tell you about my rental car.
See, when you (get) hit (by) someone on I-95, it requires (apparently) extensive fixing to your (and her) Hyundai (BMW).
Did you get that?
So, that has left me carless for over a week, and my sweet baby Hyundai Entourage won't be home from the hospital until Friday.
As I mentioned last week, I've been given charge over a Dodge Charger in the meantime. Nothing makes you miss your OWN car like being a foster parent to an incredibly stupid rental car.
Now, no offense to all you Dodge Charger lovers out there, (I'm sure at least 3 1/2 read my blog) but this dumb car is NOT a family car. See, I bought a minivan because I was simply DYING to be included in that ultra-exclusive "I have a mom-taxi" club! I LIKE IT, OK? It's just fabulous. I don't have bend over to load kids. I LIKE DRIVING A MOM-MOBILE!
But when your insurance only covers $30 a day for a rental, you take what you can get.
And FYI a Dodge Charger from Enterprise-Rent-A-Car is $27.50 a day. I am SO frugally minded.
But anyway, this silly car is HUMONGOUS. But it's all wasted space! I do not need a trunk large enough to carry two members of the mob. I do not need a hood/engine so much torque it can blast off to the moon in 2.45 seconds. And on that same vein, it has worse mpg than my VAN!
No. I need 1. Leg room for a 6-and-a-half-foot-tall-husband 2. Space for 3 carseats, one of which is MUCH bigger than it needs to be and 3. Room to put my stroller in the back without having to dismantle it.
I have none of those things. I *can* fit all three car seats in it, but I have to practically slam the door on poor baby Oliver to ensure the door is freaking CLOSED.
So, while beggars (who apparently were at fault for this who debacle) can't be choosers, I say, give me my mom-ified minivan any day. I don't "do" cool cars.
Is it Friday yet????
