Feeling the Vibe

What a great day.  I was hesitant to leave this morning as Kidlet is starting on having Hubby’s cold, but with Hubby’s reassurance, we still took her to her Aunt’s house and headed to Wausau as planned. 
Hubby dropped me off at Barnes & Noble (a.k.a. Heaven) where I met my Best Friend.  From there, we went to McDonald’s and killed at least an hour talking and talking…oh I love how time flies with her.  We then headed to Best Buy where she figured out that a Dyson vacuum cleaner is like paying $400 for a gay guy as it has balls and it sucks.  I guess she’s right, but I still dream of having one.   We did some more meandering while discussing everything and anything….and I do mean anything.  She’s the best person to have the most candid conversations with..without any surprise or missing a beat.  I swear we share a part of our brains. 🙂
After Hubby finished with his meeting, he picked me up and we headed to the Car Dealership.  After 4 hours of looking, driving, loosing hope that we would find anything, waiting, phone calls, and debating, we FINALLY decided on getting one of these:

2009 Pontiac Vibe 🙂

We’re getting a 2009 Pontiac Vibe in Steel Blue.  (I’m female.  Car Shopping is done by color and bells and whistles.)  This doesn’t have a WHOLE lot of Bells and Whistles, but it’s enough for us.  We got the base model, but it’s a nice compromise between the car I wanted and the SUV my Hubby wanted.  It’s great on fuel mileage too.  We’ll be picking it up this next week once the dealership gets it in.  Apparently, they are pretty hot right now.  I suppose it having a Toyota Engine might have something to do with that. 🙂
Tomorrow, Hubby and I both have off work and it was supposed to be the first day we got together in 4 months.  However, my best guess is that kidlet may run a fever in the morning, (judging by today) which means no Day Care for her tomorrow.  We shall see.   She’s teething and  has a cold.  Oh God, pray for me. 😉

Narcoleptic Living…..Zzzzz

Sorry I’ve been MIA for a few.  Not much going on, just daily life.  Kidlet is having a hard time sleeping at night, even with letting her cry it out.  Guess I will have to consider taking Kidlet to the Dr…in case it’s heartburn or something like that.  In the meantime, surviving on sleep deprivation is getting old. 
I’m enjoying some time off of work as I write this.  Hubby and I both took Friday off of work, and we’ll enjoy the first day together (as in “just us”) in four months, as Kidlet will go to Day Care that day.  I’m pretty excited.  With having Friday off, and Monday being a Holiday, I don’t have to be back in the shop until next Friday.  Yay!
Tomorrow is a trip to Wausau.  Hubby has a meeting there, and he’ll drop me off at Barnes & Noble where I will meet my best friend and hang out for a bit.  After 12:00p.m. Hubby will pick me up and we’ll head to the car dealership and possibly trade in our ’05 Grand Am in an effort to get lower monthly payments.  We’ll see.  I’m not sure what we have going on Saturday, but pending good weather, our Hot Air Balloon Ride is Sunday!!!!!!!  I’m so exited!!  I’m trying not to get my hopes up too much, as the weather forecast calls for Sunday to be breezy, but a girl can still hope. 🙂
Anyway, I have some more pics of my gorgeous Orchid…as it’s ALL in Bloom now!  Enjoy!
