Wife, Mom, Business Owner, Car Dealer...

Yes, I added another title to my name today. You should file this under your "only Brea" category.

Mike Cady called last night to tell us he had a Honda Odyssey he wanted us to take a look at today. We went ahead and listed the Suburban on Craigslist and made plans to head to Dixie Motors around lunch today. When we woke up this morning, Jonathan already had a message on his cell phone from a lady interested in Sheila the Suburban. He called her back to let her know we should be home this afternoon if she wanted to take her for a spin. We headed to Dixie to test drive the Odyssey and while driving it, the lady called wanting to know if now was a good time to come see the Suburban. Jonathan explained that our car was currently at Dixie while we were driving the van (Mike had other customers so we were actually at Shoney's having lunch while doing the test drive) but for her to call us when she got closer and we would be happy to meet her so she could see it. We didn't feel comfortable with her coming to a car dealership to see our car that we had for sale on craigslist. We headed back to Dixie and as we walked in, Jonathan's phone rang. It was the lady telling us that they were here! I was mortified. Mike was great and said he didn't care, so Jonathan went out back like he worked there and let them test drive ole Sheila. They took her for a spin and told us they wanted to buy her. So, yes, my friends, we sold our car on craigslist at Dixie Motors. Yes, my friends, my next post will be that it is time to name our new car......

She/He will be joining our family on Wednesday. Poor Odyssey doesn't know what it's in for.

Will you be taking suggestions for naming the new car? Perhaps a contest would be fun!

Brea, when my life gets boring, I can always read your blog for something new, funny, and exciting! You have such interesting events pop up so randomly. What a hoot! Kerri Jo

I, personally, like Oliver the Odyssey. Since the girl names haven't work out so well, it is time for a boy to take charge.

Just my opinion!

I nominate Homer as in the name of the poet who wrote the poem " The Odyssey". You then can blog about the exciting Adventures of Homer the Odyssey and Breagirl - the destinations of places it has taken you in the land of biscuits and gravy and yard sales!!! LU
