First I will start with the good, fun stuff. I bought myself a new toy.
A new iPad2. Yeahhhhhh! And to sweeten the deal I sold my original iPad to a friend so it didn't feel so extravagant.
There has been another major purchase in the house. On Friday last week I took Aunties car into get safety inspected. I did not have high hopes. Her car was old and has had some major issues in the past few years but she refused to trade. Well, as I suspected it didn't pass inspection and needed several thousand dollars of work.
I could just imagine the drama that was destined to unfold. You know I love Auntie, but seriously the woman could complicate a glass of water!! I could picture her trying to pick a car and going back and forth. I remember the drama when we had to buy a new stove.
Well, I couldn't take it. I'm a "git er done" kind of girl. Soooo, before I went home and told her the bad news, I went out on the dealership lot, found a good safe used car, made the deal with the salesman and had it delivered to our driveway.
They were leaving it with her to try for a couple of days and then she could sign the papers. Well.......she was hopping mad for a few hours. Then she took it for a drive. It is a little smaller so it is more comfortable for her and its so cute. (And I did make a really good deal) Now she is happy and the papers are being signed tomorrow.
But it seemed like everytime I went out I noticed her car trunk was up. Noooo, she says, I didn't pop the trunk. Well, I say.......it didn't pop itself. So then it happened again and I said "WHAT are you doing?? Stop pushing the trunk button on the remote"
Are you ready for this.......................
She says, "I'm not pushing the trunk button.....I'm pushing the CAR button"
O.M.G........... Seriously people, does this explain why I am sometimes dancing on the edge???
LOL I think she has it under control now. She will never push that button again. She was hopping mad because of course I couldn't stop laughing at her.
One last car related news of the week. Yesterday morning I woke early and as I passed the bathroom window at 5:45am I looked out and my house was surrounded by 3 police cars.
I'm not sure which of my neighbors was in trouble but they didn't need to all park in front of MY house in the process of a raid. (or whatever it was) At least it was too early for a lot of traffic. I wouldn't want everyone thinking the 3 police cruisers were here.
Anyways, thats enough neighborhood news for tonight. Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway in my last post if you haven't already.
