Decision Made

A nice, new, Nissan Murano it is. I love it. I should be taking delivery on it this week. And we are doing it with all the bells and whistles - which is a big change from my current car. Yes, the Beetle has a great engine and suspension - but it's more sports car than luxury. This car has a nav system! And a back up camera! I can't even tell you how cool that is for me... now, when the dogs are circling the car as I back out of the garage I don't have to worry about running one over (a big fear of mine).

In other, non-IF news (because I STILL HAVEN'T HEARD FROM THE INSURANCE COMPANY) today is the only day I'm working this week! Aaron and I usually take a week off ever summer to putz around the house and make some progress on house projects. And we do have a bunch of big projects underway right now. One involves renting a bobcat and moving 16 yards of topsoil around the yard, and the other involves making large holes in the outer walls of the house. Maybe I'll even show some pictures of the works in progress. Aaron's father is visiting to help with the work, so I'm pretty sure that I'm not going to be too involved in the manual labor. I have my own list of things to do. Go to yoga in the middle of the day. Organize my craft room (yet again). Do some knitting. Do some baking. Basically, do things that I don't usually get to do!

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I'm in the 2WW (totally forgot to use the OPKs this month, so I'm just looking at 'signs'). Keep your fingers crossed that by some miracle my DIY cycle works! Barring that, let's hope that on Friday, I get good news from my insurance company.

Congrats on your new car! I'm looking forward to seeing a picture of it. My hubby wants a new car too, but I keep making him wait until we know what's going on with us procreation wise. I hope you enjoy a productive week and also enjoy your mid-day yoga. I love being able to exercise during the early part of the day.

The murano sounds awesome - I'm totally jealous. I drive a beetle right now and luv my little car so will be really curious to see what you think about driving the murano as it's one I have on my 'want' list:-)

Baking and knitting sound great. Definitely better than moving topsoil around.

It would be so great if this DIY worked out for you. Then you could give the insurance company your middle finger.

Oh my God. My father has that exact car and if it's the same thing o/s, then it rocks bigtime!!!!!

We're thinking of updating our rollerskate to the same thing.
