About The Car...  
I'm just going to copy my explanation to saavikam77  because it's the least complicated way to explain.

THIS is why we're GOING ON A ROAD TRIP IN THREE WEEKS. [EDIT: God, how tired AM I? XD]

The Ford Escort is no more. Dead over engine trouble, although there's plenty of other things wrong with her.

We're sharing my mother-in-law's Daewoo right now. Which is not easy and has to be making my MIL crazy.

So, we wound up with a decision. A Buick Rivera, which gets 12 miles to the gallon highway, for $2500 here in town or we hike out to NM [the plane tickets only cost us about $300 for both of us, one-way], pick up the Kia Sophia Anissa's uncle Kevin has for free and drive her home [paying for gas and hotels on the way].

So, yeah. I think we're going to New Mexico.

Us, too. We've really needed a serious breather. I just wish we were going to be closer to you!

NM has some really pretty areas - I hope you get a chance to see some. :)

We'll be in Albuquerque, so I'm really expecting for some serious quirkiness. :D

Enjoy the sights on the drive and have a great time!

We're planning to. It's not going to be a fancy trip, but I think it'll be worth it. :D

If we go out near Roswell [Anissa wants to], I'll be sure to take a reporter as bait. ;)

Heh, my mom lived in Roswell growing up. Explains a LOT about my family.

Kayak.com and flexible dates. When I bought the tickets they were selling out as I watched - we missed the 8:30 departure time because I couldn't click fast enough.

Ooo, I was just in Santa Fe! Abq is nice! There are a lot of TV shows filmed there! :-)

I wish we were going to get a chance to really sight-see, but we'll only have about a day and a half in town. :[
