Thank you, Yogi Berra. You’ve described it perfectly. It’s deja vu all over again.
Yes, it’s repetitive. Yes, some might call it boring.
But we’ve gone and bought the same exact car TWICE!!
What a crazy high-flying, high-spending week it’s been!
1) First entry in an art show. See yesterday’s blog.
3) Are you ready for this?? We bought a new used car yesterday!!
What a week it’s been.
The power of thoughts is truly amazing. Here’s what happened.
I thought, “Gosh, darn, I’m not ready to buy a different car. Why did Barry’s old red Buick–Grandma’s Buick–have to die? I am still enjoying driving my 2003 Buick Century.”
Second thought: “OK, if we have to buy a new car, I really don’t want to spend more than $8,000. And the car must have in the range of 50,000-60,000 miles.”
Third thought (no kidding! You’re not going to believe this crazy mind! This thought happened last spring): I want to have more blog hits than car mileage.
So we start looking for cars last week. All the cars that fit in our mileage range priced out about $12,999-$13,999. Darn it. This was not looking good.
Until–this is still amazing–we suddenly spot IT. The very same car we already have. The car I’m driving. (Barry is driving Grandma’s maroon 1995 Buick Century.) It’s a 2003 Buick Century. The very same car. With 66,600 miles.
We gasp. We look at each other.
We murmur, “Do we dare? Two identical cars? One for Her and Him?”
We dared. We turned over $7,600 yesterday to this nice salesman in Houghton. We drove away, two matching cars, pointing southward toward home.
It’s one of the weirdest things we’ve ever done.
And what’s crazier: as of this very moment, the car mileage and the blog hits are the SAME. 66,697.
Is that weird, or what? Is that synchronistic?
I told Barry it had to be because of the deep breathing/yoga practice I’ve been doing every day for more than a month. The Universe is lining up to manifest intention. Our deepest desires are coming true.
He nodded, a deeply patient man.
Yep, Kathy, he said. Must be.
How do you think we’ll know which car is His and which car is Mine? That’s the question for October…
