The Story of My Life (This, That and the Other)

My best friend and her DH have this ongoing power struggle . . . if one of them spends money, the other has to spend an equal amount, or more. My DH and I tend not to have this struggle, because most of the time, all of our extra funds go into the Monsters' tummies.

We've been baaaaad the last week or so, though.

Over the weekend, the DH bought THAT:




Buying That involves a 500-mile round trip to pick it up. That's when IT decided not to cooperate. So I spent a lot of $$$ on parts. Didn't help.

Although I love IT, i don't think IT loves me.



So since we needed a second vehicle again anyway, we went shopping today.

I came home with THIS:





This is my first-ever-in-all-my-life brand-new-off-the-showroom-floor car. I've never had one before. Somehow, I think I got the better end of this deal. What do you think?

Oooh. Pretty! I love the new car. Very sporty. And I have boat-envy. Alas, although the kids and I are like fish out of water, the DH doesn't swim, so there's no boat in our future. :( I'll have to live vicariously through you.

Very cool all around, but since I don't swim, I (naturally) think you got the MUCH better deal.

Congratulations! How fun!

Lemme know how you like it.

Geez, you sell a book, buy a boat *and* a Jeep? I gotta get published! :)

Kidding, of course. Love the Jeep -- I wanted one of those and got a new Tracker instead. It's sporty and fun...but it's just not a Jeep.
