As I mentioned, I did not get any new pocketbooks for my birthday. Instead, I got A New Car! I feel like Bob Barker right now. I used to drive a 2003 Toyota Sequoia. My husband leases his cars and was up for a new one. He knew he wanted a hybrid and ended up with the Lexus RX400h in black, so we almost match! I considered the Mercedes GL 450 but felt too "squished" inside as it is very narrow compared to what I have been used to. I saw this and it reminded me so much of my beloved Land Cruiser. I know it eats up gas, but I really feel like I can never go back to a car after driving SUVs for the last ten years. So far, it is great. One of the best features is that it has a backup camera so I can see what is right behind me. That gives Madigan's toys (and Madigan herself) a greater chance at survival!
I hope everyone has a wonderful night. I am off to settle in for game 1 of the World Series. I hope my Boys of Summer can put a stop to the winning streak of the Rockies. Captain Varitek has all of my trust!
