Going home

Back in my RIDIC GMU class. We have been here an HOUR and have yet to discuss content.

But I digress.

I am going back to Ohio this weekend! Jim and I are leaving early-early on Saturday and spending the night with his family. My parents and younger sisters are coming up and we'll all eat dinner and hopefully the experience will not be terribly awkward. And then I WILL HAVE A CAR. For the first time in my life, I will have a car of which I will be the primary driver. It's a Buick Century, nothing flashy, but it drives and it will reduce my commute by 45-60 minutes. That means MORE SLEEP for tired Miss Howison. I am Miss Frazzle, not Miss Frizzle.

YAY FOR CARS. Apparently Mom and Dad have a line on a car for me, too. I am STUPIDLY excited. And guess what? The one I might wind up with is a silver Grand Am...but it's 10 years newer than our first one.

I bet it runs like a bat out of hell. :D

Getting a new car is so exciting! Even if it's not technically a new car. And the sleep is a great side benefit!

WOW- new car!
Btw. Does it have a name? When we were kids we used to name our parents' car with crazy names:)

We named our cars -- my first two cars were Freud and then Chester, for no particular reasons.

are you home? hope the weekend was a good one.
