Ok, remember the stressful trip to WalMart I mentioned yesterday? It WAS stressful. It was going alright, actually, until Mighty Man pushed on an emergency exit door and set the alarm off. Have you ever just wanted to melt into the floor? Thankfully, a WalMart employee came by quickly and turned it off. She at least seemed to be amused. Yikes.
The children beg to see the fish every time we go to WalMart. I figure I can buy a bowl, rocks, nifty plant/rock hiding thingy, food, and 5 of those Neon Tetra fishies for about $20. Honey, are you reading this? What do you think? For Pete's sake, our daughter is drawing frogs and turtles and cutting them out to be her 'pets'. There are paper animals all over the house. It's making me nutty that I can't throw away all these scraps of paper lying around!
Anyhoo. According to a Yahoo link I saw yesterday, the most popular color for cars in 2007 was white. WHITE?!?!?! Are you kidding me? How boring, colorless and drab is that? Silver won for 7 years in a row, but got bumped for WHITE?!?! Pathetic. If I were Queen of the Universe, the most popular color would be orange. You know, that fantastic color that Chevy uses so much lately? I looked it up on their website and it’s called Sunburst Orange II Metallic. How cool is that?! I would so totally buy a car based solely on it’s color…
So we totally got another blessing. Our van had been starting a bit hard, so Michael thought it might be the battery. I took it in to our nearest friendly Sears guy and yup, it was the battery. BUT! It was still under warranty so they replaced it FREE! Our God is GOOD!
