A new Toy for me!

I bet many of you are thinking this is the same post that I wrote a few days ago...but! it's not!!! We got another "new" car- a truck this time! it is a 2003 Ford Ranger Edge. It is nice! It's black, and my husband used to have a 1996 Ford Ranger, but this new one sits higher and looks more "beefy" than just a regular Ranger! I LOVE IT!!!! I am in love with both my cars. Before we sorta bought cars out of necesity, just grab what was affordable at the time, but now I have two cars sitting in my two-car garage that I will have to toss a coin to figure out which one i want to drive that day!

Actually right now my options are limited to one: the Mustang (Oh darn. LOL!), because the Ranger is 5 speed, and I need to learn how to drive it. But once I learn...I will probably take the truck, and Hubby will take the Mustang. I like a car that sits up high, as I am pretty short, (5'2) so I feel "powerful"(and safer) in a bigger car/truck! lol!

So while hubby is home he will probably drive the mustang, and I will drive the truck (once I learn) and then when he's deployed, I get to drive one, one day, and the other the next, and still be as happy as a clam!

So, now after sharing my happy news, I have to share somewhat dissappointing June freebie isn't finished! I still have a little bit to go on it. Last night I couldn't sleep, so I turned on Gilmore Girls and stitched for a bit, but lost interest in a little while, because of the whole cream on cream factor. It's killing my joy for it! Oh well. I am going to try to finish it tonight...keep fingers crossed. Oh and I have not finished the barn. So this weekend between reading, and taking periodic peeks at my new toys sitting in the garage, I will try to finish June Freebie, the barn in Holiday Airing, AND make a start on July freebie. Oh yeah and hubby is taking me to see Fantastic 4 #2 tomorrow, so I have got a busy weekend ahead of me! Hope you are having a great weekend too!

Yes. I am 5' 4" and definitely feel much safer in SUVs. When my Land Rover was giving me more problems than I willing to deal with last November (and the dealer turned into an idiot), I sold it and got a Ford Explorer (also shiney black) and I LOVE it!!!

Happy new cars!

Your new "toy" looks like it will be a lot of fun. Good luck learning to drive it, hopefully there isn't to much frustration involved.

Sorry the cream on cream is causing you to not enjoy your stitching at the moment. I'll keep my fingers crossed you finish your goals quickly and can move onto something that is a little more fun.
