Brace Yourselves!

It happened! I can't believe it! We got a van! What? You heard me! I have my own wheels! YES!!! I haven't had my own car for two and a half years! Party time! We got an unbelievable deal. Dale was laughing when we were negotiating at the dealership because I was driving the salesman so hard. Wow! I am still in shock! We brought it home last night but I didn't go anywhere special today. I just took Tabby to gym, and to preschool. I also dropped of her registration papers for kindergarten. Just being able to hop in my van and get there quick was so nice. No more walking (wasn't so bad) or asking for rides (no fun.) Now it's off the the grocery store! Normally I would have to wait till Dale got home and the kids went to bed. Sometimes I wouldn't be able to get there until very late at night. Thank goodness Walmart is open 24hrs or we would have all starved. Now I can go where I please, whenever I please. I am so grateful!

That looks like an awsome ride! I don't know how you did it for two and a half years. Now when I come to town you have no excuses!

I saw you yesterday & I'm so excited for you! I think our van was looking a little shabby to Madlyn 'cause she said, "Mom, Tabby has a new red van. It has soft seats. Probably softer than ours." It looks awesome!

So now I won't see you at Walmart at 9pm anymore? I stopped going that late too, it's dangerous. I'm happy you got it, looks really nice. :)
