Big News

I went car shopping today and ended up buying a new old car. It's a 2000 Caravan, kind of a greenish silver color. It is a great deal, honestly. I brought my friend Iris, the champion bargainer of the world, and between us we got them down a full thousand dollars. I have pictures of the car, but the batteries in the camera ran out, so I can't post them just yet.

But I bought a car! Wahoo!

Then we went to see the Girl and drop off some stuff. She's doing great. She and her brother almost got along, no sharp words or anything. My dead car is still in the parking lot there. When I get my new car, I'll go, clean out the old car, and donate it to the special Olympics. I can't think of anything else to do with it.

On the way home we stopped at a furniture store because Iris is in the market for a new sofa. She fell in love with a blue chaise lounge that was very comfy, and then we found out that a sofa that we all loved could be covered in an eggplant colored microfiber. If you knew Iris, you would know how funny that was. So she ordered the eggplant microfiber to cover the sofa, and a really nice contrasting fabric for pillows. I'm so excited for her. This is for her den/TV room, which is sort of her private oasis from her family. This is a great purchase for her to make, and she didn't buy MATCHING furniture. This is a turning point for her! I'm very very proud of her.

Plus, Red Sox tonight. A very exciting and productive day. Eventually, to be illustrated with pics when I get batteries tomorrow.

I hope the minivan fills the missing puzzle piece for you! I like mine -- a Pontiac Transport, a little older than your "new" one. It works for college moves, etc.

Jo, not a beach that I can think of. More like a plant or a flower.

Mimi, I'll pass on the information and of course I'll join you. Peace is my most fervent wish.
