Nothing much

It's time for a new car in the O'Household. We've both got cars that are six years old now. My civic will probably last another 10 years, so Kym's QX4 will be traded in for another SUV which will be kid-friendly. We're thinking a Honda Pilot. What do you think? Any suggestions?

I lost my wedding ring somewhere between my race on Sunday and my softball game on Monday. So, I guess that means I'm single again.

189 miles run Since January 29th. 10 miles after work today. Then just 21 more before my 10 miler next Sunday. Then what? Probably a beer gut.

Five weeks from now Kenslee will be 1. That's just crazy.

Before work this morning I put weed and feed on my lawn. I was considering dedicating an entire post to how much weeds gross me out. But, I couldn't come up with the right words to express my disgust.

How about a hybrid? There are some nice ones out there.

If you are single then you can buy all the Pepsi you want and no one will care. Win-win I say.

Awww, I can't believe it's been a year. She is such a doll.

Have fun playing with your weeds!

Tim! We're getting a Pilot (we were looking at Hybrids but economically they just don't make sense yet)! Maybe we can go in on a two-fer.

Get the Pilot. My BFF Margaret just bought one and it has a camera mounted on the back bumper so that she can watch herself run over all the neighborhood kids and pets when she backs out of the garage. The camera is pretty small, about the size of a golf ball, and the screen is on the dash where the GPS is. We played with it for about 20 minutes the other day. Two moms, backing over sh*t. Good times.

Don't get addicted to those endorphins. You know what they say, runners high is the new gateway drug.

L - hybrids are mucho dinero.

C - I'll look in the paper for a buy-one-get-one free coupon this weekend.

L - Kym definitely needs that. She gives no heed to what's behind her.

Damn, did you really lose your wedding ring? That's pretty shitty if you did. I lost mine once during a soccer game and freaked out. After about 20 minutes of panic it was located. I had visions of renting a metal detector and scouring the crappy sand field.

My buddy has a Honda Pilot and loves it. They're a bit big for my likes, but I hear great things about them. I really want my next car to be a hybrid. We test drove the Prius and it was pretty sweet and damn spacious. It even has those cameras Leezer's mentions. Have you driven the RAV4?

Perhaps we can co-author a weed post? You can be the con and I can be the pro.

Maybe look at the CR-V. It's a little smaller than the Pilot, but it's still pretty big. Also, it's better on gas. Hybrids are not good yet. Who knows how long the batteries will last, and how much it will cost to replace them. Plus, I have a friend who's a firefighter, and she says that if a person were in a bad accident in a hybrid (the type where they have to take a saw to the car to get you out), they cannot cut through the car, for fear of being electrocuted. So you just die in the car.

You're growing weed? Cool. You should try using hydroponics as opposed to just growing it in your lawn.

We bought a Pilot back in late November. Love it! Have been nothing but happy with it ever since.

Melissa said...

You should buy a Suburban. It's huge and in case the terrorists every attack Pennsylvania, y'all can drive away and live in it for the rest of your lives.

Haha I like your reasoning.

Ah, it's amazing how fast kids grow up, huh? Reminds you how old you really are.

Get an eco- friendly SUV. Something hybrid.

screw the environment, get a Hummer H2.

(actually, I have a Honda Element and it's really cool - very roomy and the back seats are "stadium seats" meaning they sit up a little higher, so people in back can see... not that it matters since they're not important enough to rate shotgun...)
