Here are just a couple of highlights from the last couple of weeks:
First, stop for a second from reading this and say a small prayer for those in Japan and other islands for the mass chaos and destruction going on with the tsunami, earthquake and now nuclear reactors melting. It is very, very sad and for all humankind something I hope none of us wish upon any where in the world. I pray they have speedy recovery, funds to help repair their livelihood and plenty of support as they move on from lost family members, homes and jobs.
Secondly, going back a couple of weeks...I decided upon a totally different car than my last post. I was about 95% sure I was going to walk into the GMC dealership and get the new 2011 Terrain. Reality set in on the Friday before I was going to go buy it, and thought in five years, when I may or may not have children will I have daycare, household expenses twice what they are now, a job, etc? So I decided to be smart and go with an amazing deal on a new Honda CR-V. It's cute, peppy and super reliable. So I went with it. As Todd said, "When you're 50, we'll get you that Cadillac." I sure hope so, honey!
|My first new car on my own! It felt pretty awesome to walk away with a great price and cute car!|
|I wish I took time to take photos. I guess that's why I don't blog often enough either. I have no photos!|
Either way, aren't Kasey and Lacey (love the names too) the cutest!?
Monster Buck here) so it was my turn to try. We went out right after work and sat in the timber near the farm Todd is purchasing later this year. We sat near a log on the ground and waited around 20 minutes (I think I'm pretty luck, each time I've gone we haven't had to sit for hours) before a buck came out. Todd was like shoot em, so I tried. I sincerely thought I had missed him because a. I couldn't see through the black powder smoke from the gun to see where he ran b. thought I closed my eye in fear of the scope hitting me in the eye. So we looked and looked. Todd even looked the next day to see if there was any blood on the ground. Nope, nothing. Well he was shed hunting this past Saturday while I was in Manhattan and what did he find? My buck! I know a little cruel, but we honestly didn't see anything when we searched for it. I know I should have been more excited when he told me, but this is also 2.5 months after the fact and I couldn't get a picture to show for it. Todd said of course there is so one day after work this week, he made me take a photo.
|I love it!|
