My New Ride!

Today is day two of driving around in my sassed out new SUV!!!  I traded in my Jeep that I bought two years ago when I was living in Orlando, FL.  It was a rear-wheel drive Jeep.  People up north where I now live didn't even know a rear-wheel drive SUV existed.  Oh how it does.  And I had to drive it here in the snowbelt of New York State for the past two winters.  It was really fun getting stuck in my apartment parking lot and work parking lot and needing to be push out of the snow.  So I'm thrilled to report that those days should be gone because I am now the proud owner of a black 2010 Sport Toyota Rav4!  It is so nice and it even came with XM radio for three months!  It drives like a car instead of a bulky truck.

I think it looks better in person.  But I am so excited. so bring on the snow, I'm ready to take it on.

Also, I don't think I've really touched on the drama that my family has been going through since around Mother's Day.  Basically my older sister is a crazy biotch and hasn't talked to my family since then because of her 50 year old boyfriend (she's 27) and the fact that he's "God's chosen leader" and because we don't enjoy their relationship together, she has disowned us.  There is much more to the story, such as: 1. The 50 year old bf graduated with my MOM, he built our house, he was married with two kids, a family friend. . .etc... You get the picture.  So in any case, my mom has been so heartbroken.  (side note: my parents are the greatest parents possible.) So last night my mom calls me and asks me if I want to meet her and my SISTER and aunt for coffee at a local Panera.  I was shocked.  I went.  I didn't really acknowledge my sister.  She pretended everything was fine.  She needs to say she is sorry before I will just move forward.  But that's what I did last night.  My mom was happy and said this is a small baby step towards a positive recovery of our relationship with my sister.  I don't know about her.  But I'm happy if that made my mom happy.

  1. Hi dearie,
    Thanks for the sweet comment! Maybe next weekend we can get together, this next week is crazy busy with all the dinners and getting J ready to go.

    You car is FABULOUS! OMG! I love it and can't wait to go for a ride in it! You will definitly enjoy the all wheel drive compared to your rear wheel drive!

    Also, that is really big of you to meet your sis and mom and aunt out. I understand that is difficult but you have always been the bigger person and if you lead by example maybe she will begin to realize the way shes been acting and treating your family and straighten up!

    You know Im always here to chat about anything and everything! Miss you sassy girl!

  2. Whoo hoo! That's awesome, congrats!
