Please excuse me....

I'm running behind. I need to put all the giveaway names in a hat (or a cool whip container not that I have an entire drawer full of those) and pull a name but the past few days have been crazy.

We were holding out hope that my beloved saturn VUE could be revived. ummmm. Yeah. No. We got the final word yesterday that it would cost WAYYYYYYY more then the car is worth to fix it.

So we bought a car. I must admit, it's a pretty sweet ride. Even if it is a mom mobile, a Taurus X (aka freestyle) if your wondering. I went from a horse and buggy to the space shuttle folks. It's going to take me days to figure out what all those buttons do. The kids are in separate seats so they aren't touching each other, it's power everything, sigh, my children aren't touching each other, did I mention that?

And we got a great deal even though we are now back to a car payment. But those three and a half weeks car payment free sure were nice.

Damn you saturn damn you! (And damn you GM for not honoring the lawsuit to replace AT YOUR cost the crappy transmissions that you put in the car but that is neither here nor there right now, don't think flyboy and I are going to forget about that.)

So that was ALLLLLLLLLLLLLl of yesterday, and today was the doctors and pre admissions for the baby, hard to believe we are in the home stretch.... a mere five weeks left. I'm tired, hot, uncomfortable and well, in constant need of a nap.

I have groceries to unload and a pantry to organize this afternoon, but I promise, I will have a name of the winner by tomorrow. If not I'll get my mom to churn out a crap ton of bags and mail everyone one.

You know she's sweet enough she just might do that.

  4. Oh, Man... I seriously need to get on the computer more. You crack me up. Sorry about the car. I know that sucks. I have a mom-mobile myself and love it. (Odyssey-power everything, natch!) I noticed the cruise control didn't come on the other day when I tried to use it and am hoping beyond hope it isn't going to bite the dust. I want to hang on to it til our next overseas PCS and get rid of it then. (I have a personal thing about shipping cars. I think it's more trouble than it's worth...)

    The annoying kid PSA cracked me up. Too funny.

    I love the Fweedom thing. Too cute. And we're only allowed to hate Jimmy Carter? Priceless! Ha!

  7. That's a pretty sweet ride! I'm sure you love it! Take a load off and rest! If I only 5 weeks left till I pop'd out a human being I would have one of those silver bells to ring from bed! (as you can tell I have not had children yet ahahahaha)
