Mr. Wonderful and I have been spending our free time (ha!) in a fruitless search for a cheap, yet reliable and fuel efficient used car for the teenagers to use. Frankly, we're getting a bit tired of The Boy using our cars.
In case you haven't been searching for a used car recently, let me enlighten you. There is no such thing as a cheap, reliable, fuel efficient car these days. Apparently, used cars - especially 5 or 6 year old Hondas and Toyotas and Mazdas and Hyundais - are in high demand. Hence, they're longer cheap.
So our fruitless search for a safe, reliable, cheap car continues. We've been bonding with used car salesmen who want to become our best friends and call us constantly to assure us that a little old lady drove the car they're trying to sell us and Boy-have they got a deal for us!
In between driving the carpool last week and looking for a needle in a haystack (the aforementioned, fictional cheap, reliable, used car), we shopped at Costco...
...in a vain attempt to fill The Boy's bottomless pit of a teenaged boy stomach.
Jack did what he is best at, which is nothing at all.
The Princess got sick with the creeping crud. She has been working on learning a solo for the Freshman Solo Concert at her school this spring. I decided to pop into the studio to try to videotape itwith my cell phone, since I am never allowed to videotape the performances. Afterwards, she told me she didn't feel well and I took her temperature - which is when we realized she was getting sick. Anyway, here is a little sneak peek of her solo. It's a bit rough around the edges - she was very tired after running it about 20 times!
