Fine, decision made. Problem: We can only have it in August!! But we have to rent our car till then! ARGH! Then a week old (or so) 08 Corolla jumps onto the market (guy bought it for his mom, who couldn't physically lift the handbrake), it's the model above what we're buying (cd player! Power windows in the backseat! Alarm clicker!) AND the price is the standard Corolla plus the cost of renting a car for 6 weeks. Amazing! Yoav is about to get into the car today to go see it... and it was sold minutes before. ARGH! Again! ARGH!
So now our pacific blue Corolla is on order for a, gulp, August 8 delivery. It's summertime, so car rentals are as expensive as they get now, but we cannot be without a car with our current child care arrangements. So we're just spending and spending and spending, and will need to mess with getting a clicker and cd player and and and.
And it's time to stare at my daughter, who is blissfully unaware of all this (maybe not - every day on the way home from J-town, I rant to her about what car to buy).
Here's the girl and her Saba, last erev shabbos, outside in our beautiful garden. My daughter likes to say 'cat.' Because there is a cat. And her kittens. And... scratch, scratch. We just had the exterminator spray outside, again. Sigh.
Here is her Highness post bath, scurrying around in the living room. She was NOT amused when she was returned to pajamas, books and bed.
Here are her first real SHOES! Well, sandals. She cried in them at the store, but we let her play with them at home the next day... and within moments she was trying to put them on herself.
Sigh. Ain't she adorable? And her top tooth just broke through! Bye bye baby!
