"New" Car

The Crafty Conservative

We're the proud new owners of a 2002 Honda Accord LX (silver). I was starting to really feel "trapped" by not having my car during the day. The chances of me actually loading up the kids to do anything substantial is usually pretty slim, but not at least having the option was killing me. We got the car for under blue book value but they accepted our offer without any haggling so we're wondering if we could have gone lower...we'll never know. But, we got our payments where we wanted them with no money down (very important since Sugar Daddy won't get his paycheck until the end of the month).

I've been knitting a little bit on my Via Diagonale. It goes slowly and I hope it doesn't turn into another Clapotis. I still really like the yarn and the pattern is interesting enough to keep me coming back for more.

I've also been reading books like crazy. I finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (for the 3rd time...getting ready for the next installment!), The Pearl Diver (I would recommend this book; quick read, interesting), a couple of parenting books (nothing of note, just trying to get some ideas for the Frog), and I've just started The Crimson Petal and the White (I think that's what it's called; recommended by a gal at book group--given *** meaning it's kind of naughty!).

I better go. I've got a Frog wanting to crawl all over me and I'm willing to oblige since he's been pretty sick this weekend. He's a little more clingy than normal.

I get my cable internet tomorrow! Wahoo!

  1. Congrats on getting a new car! I remember that it was nice just knowing I had the possibility of leaving the house when my kids were younger. I hope that Frog feels better soon!
