mom called today to let me know they were coming over to visit mi-mi. no biggie, this happens often – they miss their little grandson. plus it’s his 7mo birthday…
so mom and jannelle get here first and begin playing with and loving on jeremiah. normal.
then i noticed a mcdonald’s happy meal bag. i reach for it. mom says, “don’t touch that!” i say, “what is it?” she says, “it’s for you. but you have to wait til dad gets here.” i’m all like….okayyyyy what could it be???
well, when dad pulls in, he honks. mom runs to the kitchen, grabs the bag, throws it in jerry’s hands and says “open it open it!” so we open it…..
inside, ladies and gentlemen (i know of no men who read this journal, but for the sake of normalcy) were KEYS.
we run outside to find a MINIVAN!!!!!!
you may not know this, because i don’t think i’ve mentioned it, but we have been looking for a minivan as well as a house. (side note: grampa had always wanted to either pay for our car, buy us a new one, or pay off our college loans. the new car was the most logical plan, and that’s what we were looking for!!!!) since the house is so important, the minivan hunt has been thrown a bit to the wayside.
not by my parents though! they faithfully searched for both.
well, the minivan is a maroon color and very very nice. 1998. nice interior, nice exterior.
can you believe it???? we are so thrilled. it’s nice not to worry about that, and it’s nice to be able to get out of here when i need to!!!!
oh note, if you have already emailed me about snapfish and site additions, i’m using your email to add you to my bloglet. 😉 if you haven’t yet, just look to the right and add your email! 🙂 i am still seeing how bloglet works – i HOPE it works!
earlier today i practically scared jeremiah half to death with a humungo sneeze! poor guy just woke up from his nap, so the giant noise startled him. i had to smile and reassure him repeatedly that mama just sneezed…i finally said ‘say bless mama’ and got a smile out of him. poor fella! (we always say ‘oh bless you!’ whenever he sneezes. :D)
