whew. i’m beat like a red-headed step child.

what a freaking, long, exhausting day. it started out simple enough, well, it sort of did. hubby woke up at the ass crack of dawn, shortly before 7 am. look, on a saturday when i can actually sleep in, that’s the ass crack, okay? and even though he was trying to be quiet, he really wasn’t. but, since i was so tired, i actually slept in until a little after 9 am.

i had planned on doing a few things in the morning, including meeting up with a girlfriend, but he talked me out of it all and we decided to head down to yet another volvo dealer to check out cars. on the way, we had to fill up for gas and grab something for me to eat as i hadn’t been to the store and we were out of most things.

well, he was being an ass before we even left town so we started arguing at the bagel shop. which was, of course, really nice. by the time we got to the car, it was a full on fight. i even started crying in my pissed off state. no, not tears of sadness, but of frustration and anger. damn pregnancy hormones! he turned the car around and we headed home, calling off our trip. we eventually worked things out in the driveway and decided to head out once again.

well, wouldn’t you know it, we decided we liked one the of the volvos and decided to buy it. BUT before we could, we drove back home ~ 40 miles away ~ and got our other car, my saturn from college, to trade in. now we knew we weren’t going to get anything for it, but we really didn’t want to have to try and sell it on our own. we ended up getting $1000 for it, which was totally fair as it was a 2000 with over 100,000 miles on it. we put down a pretty decent chunk of change and added the trade-in to the down payment so our monthly payment is really rather low.

but between our huge fight and the buying of the car, we were both exhausted by the time we left the dealership. and we still had nothing to eat at home so we decided to go out for dinner ~ mostly to celebrate finally getting rid of the saturn! (the saturn was a great car for me. i bought it in 1999 when i was in college and it was awesome. but it was really time to let it go.) we headed to our favorite mexican place and the wait was forever. okay, okay, it was 20 – 30 minutes, but we were starving, so it was much too long. so, we drove another 20 miles out of town to another place. luckily, there was no wait there. our meal was delicious, though both of us had to try hard not to fall asleep in our food. we finally made it home 10 hours after we originally left this morning and i am freaking exhausted.

i will post pictures of the car tomorrow. i like it better than the other one, even though it is pretty much the same ~ a 2004 volvo xc 70 crosscountry. this time the car is black with black leather interior, which i think makes it look really slick. oh, and i’ll post some pictures of my mini baby belly, too.

i’m going to sleep now and better not be woken up at the ass crack of dawn again tomorrow!

    I know you said you loved your college Saturn, but I still feel like Saturns are bad luck for you! So here’s to new cars and new beginnings. πŸ™‚

    wendy, i do have quite a time and quite often, too. he does have good qualities, too, but sometimes they get overshadowed by his other side…

    Ohhh, I just hate it when angry tears start to flow. People misinterpret them for being whiny… Which makes me even more angry because I AM NOT CRYING… I AM PISSED OFF!!!! hee hee

    Congrats on the New Volvo!! πŸ™‚
