Preview to an update

First, thanks for all the birthday wishes.  Who knew a gal could feel such love from complete strangers all over the world?


Holy crap!  I have not even logged into my blog in almost 4 days.  Basically, in the last four days I have lost complete faith in people, gained it back, been let down in a BIG way by a few good friends, patched up one of those issues, been loved by the people I work for, drank one too many mimosas, pigged out on Migas, watched football, watched commercials, and went car shopping.  

That brings us to Saturday.  The day I drove eight different cars, pissed away a perfectly good 70 degree Saturday, skipped Habitat, and sat in cubicles for "just 15 minutes" which turned into an hour each time.  I have learned that there is really no "great deal" in car shopping because it is all just a scam of schmoozing.  An art I have not mastered and have no intention of practicing.  EVER!

I really did not celebrate my birthday at all because of the car chaos.  I figured there is always next weekend or the half birthday or next year.

Oh, and I still do not have a car.  I will post about that tomorrow.  In the meantime, I will tell you all that I have caved and am trying out an Accord.  No, I am not pregnant.

Sometimes growing up sucks! Happy belated bday. I met some of your kiddos at the meet this weekend that ate up all my beautiful weather time. FYI-they were very polite.

An Accord is a mom car? WHAT? I bought it 6 months after I graduated from college. Now if you were buying a minivan or my huge SUV then I would wonder :) Maybe my perspective is a little off since I have 2 kids, but you will LOVE an Accord. Or I'm sure anything else you buy :)

No babies here either but after my German-mobile (a VW) broke up with me after just 18 months (piece o' crap), I ended up with an Accord. I haven't had a single problem and it's almost 6 years old. Best part? It's still valued at over $11k.

Oh...I had an Accord in college & LOVED it! Unfortunately I totaled it on 75. It was like losing a member of my family...well, not really that bad, maybe more like extended family.
