My new wheels.
I had been driving our elderly van. Reliable, safe, boring.
The mechanic told me on our last visit she was reaching the age when she would need work soon.
As PH was driving his new(ish) SUV with all the bells and whistles, I decided it was time for me to splash out.
"I don't want the van anymore" I said, "I want something I've chosen."
PH agreed. "It's time" he said.
"What do you want?"
I wanted something small, not too fancy or expensive, but cute and economical to run.
This is what I chose.... not really an old ladies car is it.
But you see, inside I am about 25, and mentally probably younger than that.
Her name is Sadie, chosen by my middle grand daughter.
Sadie has quite a few bells and whistles of her own, she is the sport model and has, to my delight, a sun roof. I've never had a sun roof before.
I love her.
Of late I've been a rotten blog pal, I know.
I've been busy, but that is not really an excuse. I read your blogs but don't comment, I read your emails and can't find words to answer you. It seems I am going through some changes. I've been getting outside more, finding new interests, spending more time with family.
It is not a reflection of how I'm feeling about you, more a finding of myself after two years of brain fog. PH is well and we are rediscovering some of the fun in our lives that seemed to be on hold.
I will answer your emails, and comment on your posts soon, I value you all and the support you have given us.
Until then ..
