Trip, shopping, and the car

I've been mia from the blogger scene lately.  Sorry.  Just haven't had the motivation to blog. 

I'm doing good.  Over 30 weeks prego, now.  Actually have a check-up today.  Peanut gave her Daddy an early Father's Day gift - Pix for Kicks!  He loved it!  We got to watch her move around in her own little world.  I'll post pictures soon - or you can see them now at  We have a DVD video of her and that has become our favorite movie. 

Our trip to Michigan was good.  Shopped too much (is there such a thing?), Detroit Zoo, Mackinac Island, dinners with friends, swimming, 4 trips to Bass Pro Shop, Pizza Papalis, a Latin mass, and some car trouble.  Overall, we had a good time.  But 10 days is a long time and it feels sooo good to be back home! 

Tomorrow is cut & color day!  I'm sooo looking forward to it! 

My mom has been smoke-free for over 2 weeks now.  I am sooo proud of her.  Really.  I never thought she'd quit.  She's smoked for over 30 years.  That's a long time.  But, she proved me wrong and she did it.  Now, I gotta pay up with a Michael Kors handbag!  No complaints from me - it's worth it! 

My car is still for sale.  Price reduced:  $3199 for a 2000 Buick Century.  Call us at 217.813.0107 or 217.343.7115 for more details or to make an offer.

Car For Sale

Ladies and Gents, I am finally selling my car!!!  It's been a good car - reliable and I've always felt safe in it unlike many of those compact cars out there.  Gas mileage has been amazing - going to Florida we got over 400 miles per tank!  Interstate I've gotten low to mid 30's per gallon.  Around town, more like mid 20's.   
On one hand, I'm eager to get rid of it and move on to a newer family vehicle.  On the other hand, I'm a little sad.  Endings are always sad.  This was the last thing I every bought with my Dad.  He helped me buy it when I was just a single mother trying to make ends meet.  I'll never forget his generosity. 

Chris has maintained the car to his automotive expertise.  He never even allowed me to take it to a quickie oil change place since I bought it in 2006.   Oh, I forgot to put in the ad that the tires are less than a year old.  That's a pretty big perk! 

Get in touch with me if you're interested in it.
