Seven Quick Takes - Video Edition

I went down to visit the family last weekend because my brother left for Thailand on Monday. Alivia thought this was the funniest thing she had ever discovered. I love listening to babies crack themselves up.

Ah, my sweet husband.

I'm sure I've posted video like this before, but Ramona gets CRAZY excited when she thinks she's going outside. She just can't contain herself.

Just another one of Alivia laughing and being silly.

I just thought this one was kind of funny.

It would seem that some people have FAR too much time on their hands.

And just for good measure. The keyboard cat.

Surprise numero uno

So. After Eric's car was totaled AND the buggy burned up, we started thinking about trading in my old Jetta for a new one. We went to test drive the 2010 Jetta Sportwagen TDI and L-O-V-E-D it. And then we got it. It's beautiful. And the TDI is total top-of-the-line. Love it.

We're actually just leasing it. To me, this leasing deal sounds too good to be true. We put no money down, our payments are lower than they would be if we purchased it, and in 3 years we get to turn it in for a brand-new one. PERFECT. I can see why some people would be turned off by this - we're basically locked into VW forever and we'll essentially have car payments forever. HOWEVER. This works well for us, because we love VW and Eric is a total gear-head who changes his cars every couple of years, anyway, so he'd have continual car payments either way. And, this way, we don't have to worry about trading in a car that's upside-down when we're ready for a new one. Whoo!!

Ramona's excited to go for a car-ride. Perhaps tonight, when we go get surprise number two!

We're getting a new one

We just went to go look at it today. It's pretty. I hope it doesn't catch on fire...

Well, I haven't been around for awhile

All last week I was out.

First, I went down to Montpelier for a seminar on the Constitution. It was pretty good, and I got some good materials. Although, I'm not sure if I was in Virginia, or HELL, because it was godawful hot. Wow, my spellchecker let me get away with godawful. Guess that's an official word...?

Then, Eric and I went up to Lancaster County, PA slash Canandaigua, NY for a wedding. Since I wouldn't be getting back home until Friday afternoon, and the NY wedding was Saturday at 3p, and I didn't want to drive 8 hours straight through, we decided to break it up and stay in PA. Then, the plan was to stay Saturday night in NY and drive home Sunday. Well. I couldn't find anywhere in PA or NY that would let us stay for just one night. Oh, we wanted a B&B, not a motel. So, we decided to just drive back to the same B&B in PA. Made for a LOOOOONG Saturday. And yes, I saw a lot of buggies clip-clopping down the road.


Yesterday, I got a gargantuan (also no spell-check alert!) mulch delivery. I spent a couple of hours mulching. I've got everything covered, and still have a pile of mulch about a mile high.

Today, I decided to finish up my curtains. Don't look too closely... once I hung the valance, I realized the stripe wasn't quite straight... but, it's good enough for government work. That is to say, I don't care.

Latest project

I'm going to a wedding on Saturday, but I'm leaving for my seminar on Tuesday for 4 days, so I needed to finish my dress before then. This is what I did today!  Oh, and ew, it totally looks like I have 5,000 lbs of back fat in that second picture.

Now for things that really get my goat

At the ole bookstore today, I saw a couple of books that just made my blood boil. Can you spot the differences and figure out why?

Well, I'm SO happy to see what society thinks of as the extent of my potential, since I'm just a girl. GRR. Need I elaborate?
