Buying a car is giving me way too much to blog about.

Our online loan has been approved, and as usual I ask for a certain amount and the bank says oh no you can afford more than that. Seriously this happened with our mortgage and equity loan too. I know how much money goes out monthly people, trust me when I say, I am only paying $300 a month for this new car, doesn't freakin matter how much the damn check you send is good for! I also asked for a specific amount so I would have a "bargaining chip" at the dealer. You know the "but I only have a check for X dolllars if you can't give it to me for that price I'll have to go" tactic. Well, that's blown to shit now. Thanks a lot eLoan!

I was looking at an Urban Gray (Does that mean looks dirty all the time? Awesome, 'cause then I'll never need to wash it!) and a Velvet Blue (obviously they had 2 different demographics in mind when naming these colors) Rondo. Damn if the dealer didn't sell the blue one today. Actually it was $1000 more for crap like extra special roof racks and a plastic tray for the cargo area that I didn't give a shit about. So now my choice has been made easier... um eliminated, same thing, right?

All this talk of new cars, had the girls and I talking about favorite kinds of cars. Sadly I am not buying my favorite, namely a Sahara Jeep Wrangler. But that's being a MOM! Anyway, my (2weeks shy of) 5 year old told us her favorite car was a LIMO. Yes, as a matter of fact, she aspires to be a Princess when she grows up. Thanks for asking.

Now for a rapid change of subject. Try to keep up people. Namely my same 4 stalkers, um readers. I should probably be nicer to you or I won't have any stalkers left.

This week is FCAT testing, starting tomorrow at school's all over Florida. Okay, I pulled that out of my ass, other counties may or may not be FCAT testing this week. 3rd graders in our county start testing tomorrow. The weather this weekend was cool, as in windows open, no a/c on. So when grocery shopping today, trying desperately to think of something other than chicken for dinner. I thought mmm chili is yummy and easy on a nice cool day. Of course that's when it was 51 degrees out at 9:00am. (At dinner time it was 71 degrees, not as great of an idea.) What does this have to do with the standardized testing that's ruining public education you ask? Well, one of Breanna's favorite foods happens to be my chili. So when she got home and saw it bubbling in the crockpot she asked if we were having it because it was cold or for her because FCAT starts tomorrow. Of course I took full credit for the brilliant idea of making chili for her tonight so she'd do well on her test tomorrow. The child was bouncing around the house over her chili. Seeing as almost nothing makes that child happy lately it was nice to see.

Subject change, yes again!

My husband is addicted to our new Wii game Mario Galaxy. I don't think I need to say anymore on the subject right now. Mainly because I can't see straight due to my annoyance with this new obsession.

That's it for now folks.


Urban Gray sounds sexy. I'm jealous, my ride has almost 98,000 miles on it and even though it's just me in it I want something bigger.
FCAT = MCAS, I'm guessing. J-Bob always did surprisingly well on those. Good luck to your little one!

We had taco salad last night because it wasn't cold enough for Chili but I just heard the heater kick on so I'm guessing the storm that blew through yesterday dropped the temp enough for it today (it HAILED-fecking Houston).

The hubs was all about Mario Galaxy for a while, to the point where the noises Mario made almost drove me to punch something; thankfully he hasn't touched it in a long time.

New Ride is HERE! More on that later.
The Chili Recipe is really easy except the chili seasoning I buy we can't find in Florida. Yep you guessed it, only in Texas. I'll be picking up a bunch while I'm there, and I'll share with you. The real secret though is using V8 and spicy V8 instead of regular tomato.
