Well the day has finally come... July 17th 2008... today the Mazda turned over 100,000 miles!!! It has been a day that we have looked forward to with both dread and excitement. Excitement because let's be honest, it is pretty cool to see that perfect 100000!! To know that in just 3-1/2 years you have driven your car more miles than most people drive their cars in 8 years. That is talent my friends :) (A talent that must credit my mom for passing on to me! Her motto is "That's why we have cars, to drive them"!!)
And dread... because everyone knows that once a car turns over 100,000 miles things are usually on the downward slope. This was mine and Luke's experience with our previous car (which we ended up selling at about 125,000 miles). Thankfully we have not had any major problems with the Mazda!!
I thought this picture was worth sharing as well. For some reason I have a fascination with numbers, perfection, and order. There is something totally calming and soothing about seeing 1 of the same number in a row. When our car it 77777 I pulled off the road and took a picture of that as well. I know what you are thinking "sad april... definitely neurotic compulsive."
