scoliosis check-up. The pediatric doctor they were seeing moved back to Rochester, NY. Mom opted to go north instead of south, to Boston, since she would be doing the driving and didn't want to try driving into Boston midday and coming home in rush hour traffic.
Of course, Dad won't let mom take the new car (he is having too much fun getting 33 mpg instead of the measly 18 mpg he was getting before). Seriously though, mom is just psyched knowing that Dad WILL make it home every day. His old car was over 12 years old with 109,000 miles on it. Mom and Dad had spent $2500.00 on it in the last three months and the front end was going (really nasty squeaking), that would have cost serious money to pass inspection later this summer. Mom really didn't want a car payment but it's MUCH better than worrying if Dad will make it home in one piece. I agree wholeheartedly. Don't you?
