Out With the Old and in with the New!!


Out with the old...


And in with the New!


My husband bought me a new car for our 10-year anniversary!

We celebrated once again by going to Bob Evans for some good down home cookin'.

When the car salesman went over all the workings of the car with me earlier today, I was pretty sure I had it all down.  It's impossible to lock the keys in the car.  As a matter of fact, you don't even need keys to start it up.  As long as the 'key thingy' is in your purse, inside the car, you just push the button and the car starts up.  Push it again and it shuts off.

When we got to Bob Evans Gary and Rissi went ahead while I made sure all was locked up on my new car.  But something was wrong!!  It wouldn't lock!!  What?  A lemon??

Duh!!

You push a button to start it.  You push a button to turn it off as well.  I forgot to push the button when I got out so the car was still running and I didn't even know it.  LOL  The safety feature would not let me walk away or lock it as long as the car was running.

The car does everything for you.  I just figured it would turn itself off..  WHAT WAS I THINKING.


When Rissi woke up this morning her mommy said to her, "Guess what day it is?"  (thinking she was excited about nursery rhyme day at school where she got to dress as a nursery rhyme character)

"Sleepover day!!"  She said.

With everything that's been going on...  vacations, weddings, etc. we've not kept Rissi overnight for a while.

She is excited and so are we!


Dear Diary,

Last week I was in the slammer for a spell.  Not sure what I did to deserve this.  They treated me like a dog there!!  Seriously!  
When I got out, Mom said I smelled horrible and before she would let me sleep in bed with her and dad she had to bath me. I was happy to be home I'm telling you...  but when she put me in that tub of water and started scrubbing on me I had a good notion to poop on the floor when I got out.  But I didn't.  I do not want to be sent away again.  I am right where I belong.  Gracie.

Angry.  But glad to be home.

You and your car look good together. I need one of those cars that can park itself because I never learned to parallel park. Poor Gracie. How she suffered.

Love,
Janie

The car and you suit each other. Very cool, both of you. Now, Samson wants to know about SamPson with a P. So Gracie was he there or had he been let out on probation?

WooHoo! A new set of wheels, huh? Love it! I am so excited for you getting learn all about your fancy new car.....

And that Rissi is such a doll. I think it's sweet that time with you was obviously at the top of her little list....

Poor Gracie. Thank you for restraining yourself from pooping on the floor. That was very big of you, even though you were ticked off at your parents.. We know you are really a good girl down underneath all that silky doggy hair....

Hugs,
Jenni

I can't think of anyone more deserving of a new car - Congratulations "Miss Thang!". I love it when great things happen for equally great people!! I'm sure Gracie is soooooo glad to be home - even though she did get a bath...I miss Boudxy, but think he is probably just fine. I'm trying to wait until Jan. before getting a new puppy.

Renna said...

Well, first off, happy anniversary! Your new car is beautiful, and it fits you. It sounds like it does just about everything but bathe Gracie! ;-)

Enjoy your new car, and the fun sleepover. I love autumn, too, and dread the winter, too!
