Can someone assure me that the first week or two is the hardest and then it kinda just slips back in your mind a bit and the wait just becomes normal?
The funny thing is that I really wasn't in much of a rush, but now that my order is in I just want it.
The last week is the hardest. And in that week, every day gets harder than the one before it. Every night you have a dream that somehow involves your new Subie. Then the universe starts taunting you, and you start seeing Subaru's EVERYWHERE. You don't get any work done, and the night before you pick up your car you'll be lucky to manage 2 or 3 hours of sleep.
Then you pick her up, hear that rumble, and all is right with the world. You drive around fora few hours, then sleep like an effing baby for the first time in at least a week.
Hang in there, bud.
