Weekend Update

The kids played with bubbles today. I don't know what it is about bubbles that kids love so much, but I'm glad for it.

The in-laws came to town Wednesday night. We got the new car Thursday afternoon, and they left Friday morning.

We have a new car. It's a 2001 Chevy Cavalier. It's essentially Chevrolet's version of the Escort, but this one is more recent than the Escort was, had no broken bumper, has a heater, upholstry, and a stereo. So while it's a lateral transfer, it's also a step up, so I guess it's a diagonal transfer.

I like it. It's nice to have something to listen to besides myself in the mornings - I can get boring after 3 years driving downtown.

We're having steak tonight - I'm cooking. Go me.

Congratulations, sweetie. I am so glad for you that you can travel in a little more comfort now. And thanks for letting me know the package arrived.

Sounds as if life is good. Congrats on the new car. I hope it's a reliable winner. Guiltily, I have to admit to buying Japanese cars. The two American cars we tried spent so much time in the shop that we figured we'd start buying American when their reliability improved. I like the theory of buying American, but the fact is that I like hanging on to my money even more!
