last thursday - may 15, 2008, darric told me to go check out the desert tent sale over in the sam's club parking lot. so after i picked madi up from school we headed over there. that's where i met my friend ding. he was our first salesman. and you know how they all act like your long lost bff. i told him what i wanted and what i didn't want. i dealt with max and madi fighting and the wind blowing us around. the 2004 they had there had too many miles on it. so he said he would have someone bring over the 2008 from the dealership if i wanted. i told him i would let him know after i talked to the husband.
the husband said yes. so i called up my good friend ding and he said they would have it there by 5:00. we went and picked up kenzie and came home for a little while. then our babysitter got there. (dave - he didn't know he was going to be babysitting.) when i told max dave was going to babysit him tonight, he said, " wwwwhhhhaaaaatttttt?????" in this high-pitched voice. i think he was excited, he sat on dave's shoulders watching tv for at least 15 minutes before and after we left.
we get to the tent sale, ding is busy with some other folks, so we get hugo. he's a nice, younger guy. he shows us the car. darric looks it over REAL good. i believe it was love at first sight for both of us. (me and the car.) it only took about two hours and we were out of there. we said our goodbyes to the mini van. and we were off, until darric realized we forgot the garage remote and my keys.
the kids were so excited about our new car.
- max loves that his window rolls down.
- the girls love that they can both sit in the front seat. (the middle row)
- darric loves the 317 horsepower v8 engine.
- and i love:
• all of the room
• the way it drives
• the rear sensors
• the fact that nobody i know has one
• the big mirrors
• all the fun gadgets that i need to learn about
• the cup holders...
my new love, a 2008 nissan armada:
and i have to share this picture of the cool dude enjoying his window seat:
