We just got a new car

It's been since Valentine's Day since our accident, and we just got a new car.

Being without a car for several weeks was fun and not so fun. It was a good experience to be forced into and I hope to continue to take the bus or walk (or bike) to and fro work on a somewhat regular basis.



We ended up with a 2008 Honda Fit base model and got it for less than the Kelley Blue Book price. The color in the picture is what we have. Not my first choice. It was what was available. The mpgs are decent. A little under the smart car's mpgs. At least the Honda Fit has front-wheel drive and doesn't require Premium gas. Plus, the Fit has wonderful storage space in the back. Loads of space. Is that why Honda calls it the "Fit?"

On a wild note: This car has power steering, a first for Mr. F and me. The car drives just like my mother's first couple of Honda Civics from the mid-to-late 1980s. I felt at home right away. Weird, I know, but it really helps.

It doesn't help to walk, but it doesn't really hurt it to walk either as long as it's not bad in the first place. It's kind of under control now with meds but I never know when it'll start hurting or what causes the flare ups, so I pretty much use a cane unless I'm just going a couple blocks.

As long as you're not hurting it.
