Haha, well after two fun-filled days with our new minivan, she was called home...to the dealership. Apparently they offered us financing that didn't exist! They were willing to make a new deal in which we would come out ahead by a few dollars, but after reviewing our the first transaction and the new options that this presented, we decided to return the vehicle and start again.
I was so glad to be finished with all the researching and the classified/internet searching--only to start up right back where we left off. Bummer!!!
Oh well, we had done all that we could, and had asked for God's blessing in the matter--so although we're a bit frustrated and disappointed, we're confident some other opportunity will present itself.
We'll keep you up to speed on the situation :) Until then, we're snug as bugs in our Texas Ranger, hee hee hee...
