Playing Catch Up, Part Two: The new car

NOTE: Superman did wonderfully with getting his wisdom tooth out this morning. He was very nervous, but the entire procedure took about 15 minutes, and right now he's sitting up playing video games -- with no pain. Yea!!

Also in happy Superman news...we got a new car!! His old Gallant, which we got right before we got married, finally was traded in. That poor went through a lot...a hit and run...being driven through a large ditch, which took off the front and back bumper (not us driving)...Hurricane Katrina...It's like the cat car -- it has nine lives.

But on Life Four, the air died. And I was going to die to ride in it. Remember, we live in Louisiana. And I get cranky when I get too hot. Or too cold. Or am tired. Or hungry. Or...whatever. ;)

Superman had a lot of good memories with the Gallant. After all, we had that car when we got married, when we moved into our new house, when we moved back up to north Louisiana from New Orleans. It was the "family car."

After a full day of searching and debating and finding just the right one...we did it. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present our 2007 Ford Focus.

While the Gallant will always have a soft spot in our hearts, I am so happy to have this beautiful vehicle!

Okay, I have to run now. Superman is eating ice cream, and I don't think he feels the ice cream running down his face.

Sigh. =) I love that man.
