Ok, that's not exactly true. I mean, yes, it was really dirty and out of gas. And yes, we did get a new one today. But the cause and effect thing is not real. Maybe subconsciously. (It was also really scratched up because someone drives like an asshole-- hint: IT'S ME).
After a brief period of infatuation with a Suburban (THOSE THINGS ARE SO BIG!) we went with another Sienna, because 3 years is my absolute limit on a damn minivan. What's worse than driving a minivan? Driving an old minivan. Bleh. I really did want a Suburban, but you guys! Have you looked at the mileage on those things? I feel like I would have to fill up on the way to the gas station.
This minivan is red.
But yes, it is still a minivan. Sigh.
And I refused to let the kids get the DVD package because the headphones are bluetooth and they do not need to be radiating their fool heads with that nonsense. I barely want them to get dental x-rays. And plus also, they all have an iPad. SPEAKING OF RADIATION.
Extra bonus: Ben took the babies to the car dealership while I was at work today after bringing Dorothy to nurse on campus and bam! New minivan. Took 2 hours total.
I had to work today. It was super fun. I even ironed a tunic to wear-- I have not ironed in so long the boys all gathered around, shocked and awed by the technology. I also work tomorrow. Ben and the babies have big plans to ride around in the new minivan. BUT NOBODY IS EATING A DAMN THING IN IT DAMNIT.
