brown is bad


Introducing my brown bomber. This is the '91 Honda Accord brown beauty that I drive 76 miles to work and back daily.

So, why am I posting about this? Well, with my husband in D.C., I've elected to drive his car which is a '02 Silver Honda Accord. Why? Well, in a nutshell, it’s because it has air bags and my car doesn’t. For some reason lately, this has really started to freak me out.

On some occasions, I can be an aggressive driver but when you drive 76+ miles daily on the freeway, it’s bound to happen.

So although I miss my husband, I’m thankful that I get to drive his car while he’s out of town.

We do have future plans of buying another vehicle. That would mean that the ’02 would become mine and the new car would be my husband’s (this is happening for reasons that I don’t care to share in this post). Our plan is later this summer to figure that one out and test drive a couple of our options. Obviously something with good gas mileage.

I'll update you on our research as it approaches...

Good Luck with the purchase! MY first car was my 89 accord! I LOVED IT, and then my next car was an 98 accord I also loved it!!!

I also in general love cars, so if you need help, :)

76 miles a day? wow....i thought my commute to BG every day was bad...but it's nothing compared to that.

drive safe! :)

Thanks for the comment on my blog! :) I love your Brown Bomber! I had an 89 Maxima that I drove for SO many years- and I adored it. But airbags are good!

I loved your OC post. I was so in love with that show- the last season lost me a little- but the music was amazing. Do you have the OC Mix CD's? They are amazing... and take you back!

Take care!

My first car was a 92 teal Honda Accord (stick shift)- it had over 200,000 miles on it when I traded it in for my Civic - such a good car.

Have fun shopping around for a new one!

I realize everyone's lives are different and car situations vary. But for bargaining power.... every woman I know always gets the new car and the old car goes to the man. I'm voting for a special treat for you. (but either way it looks like a positive for you!)
I just paid off our 02 Accord. I LOVE my Honda. We are planning on having it for a long while, I love that about Hondas.

safe travels :)

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
