Wet Carpet

Yeah, wet carpet! And not the good kind (*wink wink*). Although not a huge fan of excessive carpeting, if you know what I mean. But I digress.....

My new car has wet carpeting on the floor of the back seat. Some sort of leak that I think is coming up from below. Its going in Thursday for them to look at it.

Not even 300 miles on the car and already......

Dammit I HATE when brand new things aren't perfect.

Newest Edition

We needed something bigger (especially since our family is potentially growing again) So I chose this! Plus I can tow with it. I miss being able to tow.

I Love Technology

I love all things technology.

When car stereos came out with the digital station display (105.9) I had to have one. Now they're all like that, but I paid a pretty penny for mine at a time I couldn't really afford it.

CD players, digital cameras, portable phones, cell phones, DVD players, hi-def television, satellite TV, car DVD players, surround sound, GPS, Blue-Ray players, etc. I got them all at the front end of the technology. Stupid really because the costs do come down, but I had to have them.

I was a little late into the Smart Phone thing though. You know, I-Phones and the like.

However I recently got a Blackberry Storm and so far love it! Now, I love it even more. I downloaded an application so that it charts the golf course for me. For instance, it tells me how far to the hole, to the front, middle and back of the greens. It tells me how far the water is away and how far to carry it. And likewise for bunkers and other hazards. (I'll get this prettier version when its available:

Man! I LOVE IT! It makes things so much easier and its all on one device. I don't have to purchase a separate GPS handheld designed for golf. I just use my phone that I have with me all the time anyway.

Think they'll come up with an App that will read a green for me next? Or find my ball in the woods? I'll be in line for that too!

Bonus Time

I will receive a nice little bonus in tomorrow's paycheck. Quite unexpected in these times but definitely appreciated (I charged my hotels on vacation). Its in keeping with what I've received in the past. I haven't seen one in a few years and and since we didn't receive raises this year, nice to know they all still appreciate hard work.

How Exciting

I reminded my Little One of a dentist appointment she had last night.

Her reaction? "YAAAY!!"

I need to learn to get so excited about such things. But then, who really gets excited to see their dentist?
