Not your ordinary Jeep

My husband and I were driving on Hi-way 17, on our way to his doctor's appointment for a breathing test,that's for his doc to find out what has been going on with his system, aside from having high blood pressure at the age of 28. Speaking of doctor's appointment, I'll have mine a month from now, from calling for an appointment a month ago!! yeah two months for a new patient, that's how long it takes! Oh well, welcome to America! lol but you know, they have the best doctor here and a variety of specialists..

Ok, going back to HiWay 17, hubby and I just suddenly thought about our baby, our jeep back in 'Pinas. We miss driving it. It isn't just an ordinary jeep FYI, as you can see. it's a full stainless steel ,all polished up with great interiors with a 5-speed Saturn engine! yeah, on a jeep!
I tried to inquire how much will it take to ship the jeep here, the cheapest cargo business office I've went to, quoted me an almost whopping $3,900++ for a 20' container!! And where on earth will we get the money for that??

It's not only the jeep that I miss back in 'Pinas.. It's really hard fighting back homesickness, if someone of you could relate to me, I know what Im talking about. I miss my dad, my little sister, everyone back home, my dog Roxy--even I never pet her ever, because she's wild, I miss her! i miss the foods, foods that I can't eat or buy here--the streetfoods, that to-go meals at canteens, riding tricycles and jeepneys, the pandesal(filipino breakfast bread), going to church every Sunday, the showbiz gossip, Tudings, Jollibee.. and the list goes on, oh I forgot, I miss my

3900 dollars?!?

You could buy a car with that amount.

But, apparently, the jeep has a lot of sentimental value which is priceless.

even if you manage to bring your beloved jeep, i don't think it will be allowed to run on a first world roads, much less a freeway.

I love Naturo!!!

I agree with sasuke... I think the jeeps are more suitable for Pinoy roads rather than American thoroughfares. Yah, it really breaks your heart if you miss something very special to you... but we all have to move on. It's ok... but we have to live in the present. God Bless!
