Drumroll, Please!

Laydeez And Gentlemen! I got my car yesterday. A Toyota Corolla "Altis". Small, nippy, sips gas. Parks in all those tiny spots I used to have to pass by. I am in luuurve.

It's "Foreign Used", which means that it was driven on nice flat foreign roads and is in really good condition. Hooray for Altis! Welcome to the family!

In other big news, Max turns SEVEN tomorrow! In our neighbourhood, Seven is an important age. In Hindu tradition, Seven is the age of reason, the age of spiritual responsibility.

So he's having pizza and other goodies with a few buddies after school today, and I will send cupcakes to school tomorrow. No huge party this year.

Now, I have actual work to do. Before I get back in my Altis and make style!

What it REALLY needs is some Fuzzy Dice hanging from the rearview mirror! Or alternatively, I could get one of those big stickers made for the back glass: "MOM'S DINER"!

oh cool! We're looking at new cars (that is, new to us) and have been eyeing Toyotas...I want a slightly bigger one, though, as it will be our only family car.

Happy Birthday to Max! 7 is a great age--enjoy!
