It dawned on me that I have never blogged about one of my major modes of travel: Layla! My 2002 Jetta!

Layla and I have been together for 7 years now, we met back in September 2006. Sure, she had some baggage, about 44,000 miles, but hey, who doesn't have baggage these days?

Together (and with friends), Layla and I have traveled many miles throughout the country and beyond - we've even been to the exotic country of Canada! We've celebrated many anniversaries and birthdays, but recently we passed one of our biggest milestones EVER. What was it?

Wait for it....
100,000 miles! She doesn't look a day older than 80k.

That's right, Layla just rolled over to 100,000 miles! Pretty epic!

In keeping with all things Volkswagen, her check engine light came on approximately 50 miles later. Predictable? Yes. Am I upset about it? Not in the slightest! In fact, I just gave Layla a special 'spa trip' - i.e. a bath, including interior vacuuming, to celebrate our first week at the new job! We'll be spending a lot more time together now that I'm driving to work again. Can't say I'm going to miss the Bus Crazies, but I will miss having 40 minutes every day to read!

Wish me luck in my first week at The Seattle Storm!

Good luck!! You'll (both) do awesome. :) You could start listening to books on cd. That's what I'll be doing throughout my new commute.
