Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

My youngest will be entering High School as a Senior which means no more standing at the bus stop in the rain…he drives, and no more back to school shopping…he wouldn’t be caught dead shopping with his mother…besides he has his own Debit Card.

His last year in High School is bittersweet but it doesn’t mean I can’t go “Back to School Shopping” and take advantage of the end of the season sales.

I may not be doing this…

back to school 2

But I can do this…

Have you done any Back to School shopping or taken advantage of the end of season sales?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

In my current job I no longer have much of an opportunity to travel and my daily commute from Middletown, DE to West Chester, PA can be quite boring.  Yesterday I had the chance to make a site visit to Marlton, NJ, or as I like to call it, “Exit 4 on the Jersey Turnpike”.  Not to say that driving straight away on the turnpike wasn’t boring because it was, what made it all worthwhile was the location itself.

The building is surrounded with a man made pond that has ducks, a fountain and beautiful flora.  The Atrium is also serene and peaceful with tall palm trees, plants and flowers.  I think coming into this building on a daily would put anyone in the right frame of mind no matter what the traffic was like in getting there.  Here are just a few pictures of the outside, I will post the interior shots tomorrow.

Hello Friends, we have a new addition to the family!

On Wednesday, we welcomed a new little bundle to the family, it’s name is Spark, Chevy Spark. When Tayair pulled up the driveway I almost cried, it was the cutest little car I’ve ever seen. Not quite as small as a “Smart Car” but just as cute and compact as the Volkswagen Beetle was back in the ’30’s.

The 2002 Hyundai Elantra that Malik was driving began acting up, even after a replaced engine, the brakes and rods began to go and it just nickeled and dimed us so it was time to get rid of it, we will donate it to Goodwill.  We decided to hand down the 2005 Honda that was purchased in April and then get Tayair a new vehicle.  My husband had visited Diver Chevrolet last week and thought the Spark would be the perfect car for him, one that would get him from Point A to Point B and would last for many, many, many years!

Not having purchased a new vehicle since 2005, it was amazing to see all the bells and whistles in this basic car. I thought my friend’s Mercedes was loaded with amazing features but this little Spark was also equipped with some awesome controls, including Sirius XM Radio, Bluetooth, 9 airbags, USB outlet, touchscreen infotainment system, steering wheel mounted audio controls, and an emergency communication system (OnStar 6-month free trial).

I didn’t realize it was a 4-door, and squealed with delight when he opened the back doors, so cute and surprisingly comfortable with ample leg and head room.

The trunk was a bit too small for me and there isn’t a spare tire, instead an air compressor and a can of “fix it flat”, but with OnStar just a push of a button will get you emergency service.

This vehicle will be in the family for a long time to come and I can honestly say that it’s a welcomed addition even with the car payments!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

This morning I woke up blessed but stressed which is not the norm for me. Before driving into work I stopped at Middletown Car Care to check on the status of “Miranda”, Tayair’s old car. We took it in last week for a diagnosis to determine if is was worth having it serviced and then given to Malik or not serviced and left on the lot to be sold.  I don’t like being stressed or carrying a burden so I am going to relax, take a deep breath, exhale and then release it into the atmosphere.

Friday Eve and it’s not very Springy, it’s overcast and cloudy, a “jeans and t-shirt” type of day, but since I can’t wear that to work it’s a “two-tone dress” type of day.

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday

The car search for #1 son is over, and not a moment too soon, “Miranda” his 2002 Elantra was taken in for service Monday and unfortunately won’t be coming back – so sad too bad!  Her replacement is a Silver 2005 Honda Civic from Wolf’s Elite Autos in Stanton.  I  pulled a CarFax report and it had a high rating, 2 previous owners, and the outside is nice with only 1 small ding.  The inside is clean but the locks and windows are manual!  Can you believe they were making vehicles in the 2000’s with manual windows and locks, it was hilarious, but the price was excellent and Honda has a good reputation.
