It's the Little Things . . .

. . . that make you feel old.

Lisa and I joined the ranks of minivan owners on Tuesday, purchasing a 2006 Honda Odyssey minivan. We had planned on buying a 2007 CR-V, but I was worried that we would outgrow that in a few years and it seemed like a good opportunity to get ahead of the curve. Fortunately, Lisa was willing to be a minivan mom (we're replacing her Jetta) and there were some great year-end clearance sales from Honda.

In the end, we were able to buy an '06 Odyssey for practically the same price we would have paid for a '07 CR-V. It's "Midnight Blue Pearl" so Lisa can continue her string of dark blue vehicles -- and it's got a lot of bells and whistles. She's got her leather seats, and Clay's got a lot of room -- he currently has 6 seats all to himself.

Anyone interested in a lightly used 2000 Jetta V6 with 54,700 miles?
