Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous one – we had a great, busy one, with one unexpected happening… I got a new car!
I know, how do you not expect to buy a car? Well, we actually went in to buy out my lease (I’ve been leasing for the past five years – the reasons are a post for another day). Once we got there and they ran all the finance numbers… well, it was only $30 more per month for a car two years newer with less than 6,000 miles. It was kind of a no-brainer… and plus it’s maroon (well, “Opera Red”)… which made this Hokie very happy.
With all that excitement, it was a pretty long day for us. What was supposed to be about an hour and a half process ended up at nearly three hours… and Abbie was such a trooper through all of it. She had a blast looking at all the cars in the showroom, playing in the play area, and even sitting on the finance manager’s lap while we did paperwork. Everyone at the dealership loved her, and she made a lot of new friends – I was so proud of her for behaving so well.
From there, we headed to grab lunch, then straight to a birthday party… which meant Abbie got no nap. Bedtime was a little trying that night since she was overtired, but she went right to sleep. She definitely still needs that nap!
Saturday Abbie and I headed to the grocery store before my parents and one of my sisters came over in the afternoon. I told Abbie before her nap that her Grandma and Pop would be there when she got up… and she was so excited when she saw them. I love that she gets so excited to spend time with my parents, especially my dad. I was really close to my Grandpa (my mom’s dad), so it’s really cool to see that relationship with Abbie and my dad. There’s just something about a girl and her grandpa.
With that, we’re at Monday and hopefully a calm week that goes by pretty quick. Hope you all have a great Monday!
