So, I want to apologize if I was a little snarky about the whole car payments thing. I wasn't meaning to be, and it's not like we want to sink ourselves into tons of debt, but for us, car payments are part of the budget. We've always been fine with that, and it probably won't change anytime soon.
I did end up getting a Ford Expedition. I was a little nervous about the size, but y'all, I love it. I feel like I'm sitting (errrr, driving) on top of the world.
