Breaking News....

In a previous episode, your heroic heroine here was informed that it was critical that she discover ways in which she could cut back her spending. After much knashing of the teeth, a miracle happened


hubby's new car

Don't ask me nothing, I don't know what it is, the year, make or model all I know is that it showed up exactly 1 week after the budget conference. Oh and it is a 2 seater (we have 3 boys) which suggests that somebody ain't gettin a ride!

I am relieved actually, because I won't have to give up 3 of my favorite things afterall -


yarn, books and thai food

So, let us review:

Beemer $45 grand plus; yarn $8; LeCarre novel $7.95; lunch at favorite thai resturant: $14.90. Being left the f%$# alone - PRICELESS!

This budget mini-saga is one of the funniest things I've read in a good while. What a satisfactory conclusion!

Also, I am now craving Thai food.

My guess is M6 convertible with a V-10 engine. You'll have to take a test drive and open her up.

i'd say you got it made for awhile. Hope you get to let your hair blow in the wind a few times too :D.

How much yarn can $45K buy? I think you deserve equal rewards.

NOW we know why there was a budget discussion, there was a CAR in the works! So yes, I think you won't be having any problems with what keeps you happy!

I think you need to see how well the car handles on your way to the LYS!

I'm with Lynn. This is why it was vital for YOU to cut back, lol. Men are such rascals when it comes to cars.

WandaWoman said...

Ha, that was way too funny. I was thinking too that was why the budget conversation even happened. I think you can buy all the yarn, books and thai food you want!

hahaha...my friend, your hubby is making my hubby v jealous cause Beemers happen to be his favorite also. Kept telling me he used to drive a M-roadster or whatever the name was before we were married...

If that's all that makes you happy...I'd say your husband has gotten away very easy....
