Well I did it. I finally got my new car. This was something that had been weighing on my mind long before my wreck and now I am done.

After a sad Friday evening (Allison's going away outing) I was glad to have something to look forward to on Saturday morning. The ever helpful and always entertaining Kate drove me just past the Tennessee state line to meet my mom and uncle in Athens. The exchange of keys was pretty short and before I knew it, it was just me and the car heading back home. I opened the sunroof and played with the radio and adjusted my seat and mirrors and tried the cruise control. Everything works great. Pictures to come soon.

I haven't picked a name yet. I think Candace Camry (a la Candace Cameron) is funny but I don't think Candace is a good car name so I am still thinking. And YES this car will have a name as I have noticed that all my things with names (Monica, Rod) still work while the things without names (old car, computer) do not.

After I showered and ran some errands, I went to C's house to watch the SEC championship game on his high def TV and then whipped up dinner for us, his parents, and brother and sister-in- law plus kids. I made poppyseed chicken (of course) and it was a hit (of course).

Right now I am sitting on my couch watching/reciting Home Alone and drinking coffee. Later tonight, we are all going to see Carrie Underwood. In between, I have some major cleaning of the apartment to do as well as the first of my Christmas shopping! All in all, a great weekend.


  1. I want to see your car! You could name your car Cash....

    Have fun at Carrie.

  2. Candace is a good choice in spelling, even if that isn't what you end up naming her. :)

    Congrats on the car, and best wishes on the naming - like you, I name everything. Our blow-up Christmas Snowman is named Pete.

  3. Congrats on the new car! I can't wait to see it.

  4. You could name the car Kirk Camry, after Candace's equally popular (in the 80s) brother.


Oh goody!
