I am feeling so much better…… The flu came and went with only a lingering cough left.  I still sound like a smoker when I laugh.  Let’s hope this totally goes away and doesn’t turn into bronchitis or something.  So….yesterday the weather here in St. Louis was 62 degrees.  I ventured out with my sidekick Bruce and we went looking at cars.  His lease is up in like 3 days and he has been trying to figure out what to do with a new car. He loves what he drives now and is thinking of just staying with that and buying it out.  But there is the temptation of that new car smell, the excitement of driving something different.  After all I think life is TOO SHORT to have a boring car.

Does that make me sound materialistic?  I don’ think so ….cause if anyone knows me…… knows that I am not materialistic.  But seriously I like cars.  I have been leasing cars for about 15 years now and I love the fact that I get a new car every 3-4 years.  I love the reliability of the newness.  I never have to worry about repairs, etc.  There was a time in my life while I was in my 20’s that I never had a reliable car.  I remember when I was pregnant with my son and my first born was a little over 2, it was a ver hot summer day and my crappy car broke down on my way home from the pediatrician’a office.  I promised myself right then and there…..that someday if I could afford it I would never have a shiddy car again.  I am so grateful !

Back to Bruce……he keeps going back and forth on what he wants to do but I am sure he will figure it out and it will all be good…….I did remind home this morning that LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO DRIVE A BORING CAR !

because I do really believe that…….I love the sport mode on my car and use it often 🙂
