Two New Cars, A New Computer, and A Pet Peeve

Besides still not wanting to blog I have felt a little out of sorts...and tired...and still sad.....and not to mention completely overwhelmed with trying to buy two new cars in one weekend. Call us crazy...yes we are so crazy! AND our computer totally went on the fritz and so we broke down and bought a fabu-tastic IMac {M.A. we should so have the girls have a video chat!} So needless to say I have been emotionally and emotionally and EMOTIONALLY and SO EMOTIONALLY exhausted. {so this post will contain NOOOO fabu-photos because I have nor the strength to take any...or patience to figure out this computer....or the desire to download anything....and so I am not.}

So we got a new computer.....Elle especially loves the Photo Booth Feature and has taken a bazillion crazy pictures...and I must say I have one especially awesome photo of myself now.
{I seriously think it's the ugliest photo in existence..}
And I have been trying to get all my fab-photos from my other computers on this one...AND all my rockin tunes too. So that has been enough for me to pull out my hair. {oh by the way...my hair is getting SOOOO long... One day I plan on being Lady Godiva minus the nakedness and the horse....you do not want to see this naked bouncing around on a horse....but my hair will be way hot!} So that is the new take on the computer...it's awesome, still a change switching from a PC to a Mac....but I think I will be happy with it!

Everyone knows how stressful it can be to buy ONE car right?! Times TWO! AHHHHH it seriously would be enough to make me want to shout...BRING OUT THE LOADED GUNS...{but I may be sad...about sad stuff...and I may be crazy for suggesting to the Hubs to buy two cars...but I am not that sad nor that crazy to really bring out the guns!}
So we decided that if we ever wanted to trade in my car that this was the time because we owed a little less on it then we Owned so if we traded it in now we wouldn't have any negative equity...and if we were to wait then the car would depreciate and we would just wait until the car was paid off. But we really wanted a bigger and safer car now so that was the reason as to why. SOOOOO we started the search. Meanwhile the Hubs decided to sell his macho truck {scoffs} so we were down to one car and that wasn't working for us...SO we decided we needed to buy another vehicle.
In the end worked out so good because even with getting me a bigger car and a slightly bigger car payment, both of the cars are safer then our old cars and so the insurance dropped like a bazillion dollars so it makes it that we will only be paying $30.00 more a month how cool is that?!
So are you dying to know what we got?
The Mister bought me a Honda Pilot...and let me tell you...it is so nice to have a bigger car...I was driving a Ford Focus and let me tell you it's not a family car. I especially love the after market navigation. Never will I get lost again!
And for the Bread Winner he bought himself a BMW 330I. It's sweet! I'll post pictures one day.

Now for the moment you all have been dying to hear....what is my next Pet Peeve?!
For real it is a nasty one.....and it makes me want to vomit.
Okay Friends, Fam, Frienemies, Naysayers, Onlookers, Stalkers, Friends of Friends, Frienemies of Friends, Frienemies of Frienemies....old bf's and old bffs and old bfs of old bffs and all others out there in the wide world of bloggness-ness.....
There is nothing more disgusting then going into a public restroom and seeing someone elses pee and poop chillin out...screaming..."My maker is a Nasty Poop Machine".
It really isn't that hard friends....seriously...I don't even care if you don't wipe it's your underpants...but PLEASE FLUSH. I do not want me or my cutie kidlets assaulted by your nasty-ness!
Now maybe you don't flush because you don't want to touch the handle....because yes I understand that there is a ton of butt germs on that thing....I don't like touching the handle either. SO do as I do. Use your foot. I am serious lift up your leg and push the handle down with your cute shoes...or ugly shoes.....I don't care.....what your foot attire is....this is a great way to avoid butt germs on your hand. But please flush the natural human must do down the potty...cause it's nasty.
SECOND...if you happen to enter into said nasty stall and notice someone was in fact in violation of in proper pooping conduct.....be a good person and kick up that Jimmy Choo flush it down. I understand the need to want to turn around and wait for another vacant stall...in which I still do if I have helped out a fellow pooper. This is what I do because I understand the vile memory of just seeing someone elses ca-ca-ness and not being able to use that potty. So I quickly find the handle with said foot....and flush it down...then I LEAVE that nasty zone...and enter another stall.
SO to all the Blogging world out there... if I ever find out you are indeed guilty of non-flushing your are blacklisted in my not so important book!

That's all!

I love your blog! Thanks for making my morning a little more enjoyable :) And I completely agree with you about the Flushing thing! It drives me crazy.

You are seriously going to love your mac. We have a mac that is broken (after it lived a long and happy life since we bought it in 2003!) and needs work on the power-something-or-other so til it gets fixed or we get a new one I'm forced to use my very old PC laptop which I hate. There is such a difference. Did I mention you'll love the mac...

And the Pilot is my dream car. I'm so jealous :) What color did you get? The maroonish one makes me drool but I love them all.

Video chat is a must! We will definitely do it. Maybe Sunday? That's always a good day! I am glad that the car situation worked out for you guys - post pics when you can! It so fun to drive around a new (and safer car too!) I am just SO glad you guys didn't enter the mini-van world! Stay strong with us! :)

Two new cars?! Yay for you! One of these days, we'll get a new car that I'll actually get to pick out. Although, I'd probably have to leave Nate home for that to ever happen. I can't wait to see them!

Kandis! Funny, entertaining and truly elaborated to a fault. I LOVE your blog. Yes, you make me want to blog. Just maybe. I said maybe. The pet peeves rant would be my motivation for blogging. Between Kevin and I, and our little friend called OCD, we could create an overflowing abundance of necessary and unnecessary pet peeves. Love you, cuz. You're awesome!

You crack me UP!! Love the pet peeve....hate the not flushing the toilet thing! Just as gross is when people don't wash their hands after they have left such a nice treat in the toilet!
