After much deliberation and internal discussions with myself, I finally decided to purchase the Mercury Mariner I've been eyeing up for the past year. I've had my Ford Focus for three years now and, though she has been very good to me, I felt it was time for an upgrade. I look forward to the automatic locks, windows and cruise most of all since my Focus did not have these lovely options. Ooohh, and sitting up higher so I'm better able to see who I'm cursing out in front of me when driving to and from work.
Now I just have to figure out all the buttons, gadgets and doo-hickeys. I think I'll get up early tomorrow and hang out in the new ride until I figure out how to work the damn thing. See, I love new gadgets but am not the most patient or gadgetly-inclined (like that one!) to fully appreciate their optimum uses. For example, still working on the Garmin watch I got...have yet to program a route in there and use the heart monitor. One of these days.....
My new cell phone arrives Monday. I feel a gadget overload heading my way.
