The current event that made me have this jaw dropping moment was when my husband and I decided to buy a new car. My old car was wonderful. I actually kind of miss it (in the way you miss an old friend that you haven't seen in a while). But, it was starting to get on that last leg. So, we went car shopping. Just the act of walking into a car dealer made me nervous. I felt like I was going somewhere that I wasn't allowed...that I should wait for my dad to join me or something. But, they actually treated us like adults and called us Ma'am and Sir. Seriously? I am not a Ma'am. Then we found the perfect car and made a deal with the salesman. I looked at Joe just before signing on that line and we shared a smile...you know, that smile that says "yeah, we are doing this".
So, we are now the owners of a brand new Hyundai Santa Fe. I love it. I love that it's roomier and comfortable. The safety features and Consumer Reports rankings are fantastic. I think Joe loves the bluetooth feature. He doesn't have to worry about me jabbering away on the phone while driving now. All in all, it was a perfect purchase that I hope we enjoy for a long time.

And now I need to go do something childish....this spring weather makes me want to roll down a hill, pick some flowers, jump in some spring puddles...and not worry about life. :)
