a little more productive today...maybe
I can feel it already...I'm much more productive today.
About the great used/new car debate...I think Rich is winning. With a nasty review of the VW van in hand and the huge savings factor and a little dash of reality, I'm coming around to his way of thinking. If we get a used van, it'll probably be a Honda Odyssey...with leather seats. And since the cards are in my hand, I can probably swing the vote for heated seats and a navigation system. And I'm also going to insist that the car be detailed so that I can at the very least pretend that it really is a brand new car. Who knows...I may mist new car smell spray in there whenever I sit behind the wheel.
We head out today for my parents' 50th wedding celebration. I have a few errands to run today...things to pick up for decorating the party and that sort of thing.
My mom goes in for knee replacement surgery on Tuesday so I'm going to see if I can find anything like a bed jacket for her. I'm thinking that she may want to cover up a bit for receiving visitors.
Also on the to do list for today is to prep Pinky's room for painting. My back is really aching so I may have to save the really reachy areas for Rich to do on Sunday when we get back from my parents' house.
p.s. The elephant tea kettle? Yes. That's what I'd like for lovey dovey day. Won't it look sweet perched on the stovetop, at the ready for boiling water for tea? I think so too. Rich, click here my love.
