A NEW CAR!!
Look what we got yesterday:
A new van!! Well, not new but new to us because really, who BUYS brand new cars??? (Add to TO DO list: plant tree on which money will grow) I LOVE it! It's so nice and clean and currently Goldfishcrumbandcrayon-free! Woot! AND it has the "Magic Doors", as my kids and their friends call them-magic because they open and close with the touch of a button -forgive us for being so excited-we traded in our 12 year old van so we're a bit Old School. Plus, I got some good knitting progress in on my Jitterbug sock while waiting forever at the dealership yesterday (which was a GREAT place to buy a car, seriously! Super friendly and not the usual slimy car buying experience) and last night the Husband and myself went out on a date-an all-around AWESOME day! Not to mention that our date was sponsored by one of our great friends (featured here wearing some lurvly Clemson mittens knitted by moi! Ok, so maybe not much of a need for wool mittens in South Carolina, but aren't they fun and orangey??) who is home on her Spring Break and called US and offered to play with the Things so the Husband and I could go out-hello?! How often does a babysitter call you and ask you to go out so she can play with your kids?! One of the many reasons we love her!! As previously noted, an all-around awesome day!
I've made some good progress in Clean and Purge 2007 but my enthusiasm is seriously waning-cleaning is for losers. I think I'll go knit for awhile, love on my babies (sigh, some of whom are big girls now...) and enjoy the weekend! Have a great Friday, y'all!
