Now that April has a job, we have a new set of challenges, especially regarding transportation. It’s not a major challenge, but there will be days when she travels, and sometimes that will turn into multiple days of being away from Springfield. Subsequently, we decided to get a second vehicle, and since we already have a nice car with good gas mileage, we decided to get something with more utility. After comparing trucks and SUVs, we decided on an SUV because it’s all enclosed and that will work better for transporting our dog. I bought a 2000 Blazer with very few miles on it that was in great shape. Hooray, right?
