in other news, i am a little pissed right now. if you remember, last weekend i went car shopping. my new car was supposed to come in in yesterday, and i was going to pick it up today. well, in a perfect world and all, that was the plan. the salesguy's story is that "someone" messed up the inventory and caused "delays" in shipment of vehicles all over the country. <----- suuuuure it did. whatever. so now, my car will not be delivered until wednesday. nerdy salesguy (not to be confused with potential date salesguy, apparently he was out today, due to a family emergency. uh huh.) was profusely sorry for the mishap and offered to throw in some free floor mats for my troubles. yay me. needless to say, i left there in a bummed mood. to cheer myself up, i drove to one of the few remaining bookstores left in the city. and there, i browsed and debated purchasing no less than three books. in the end, i put them all back. as much as i am a multi-tasker, i really can only read one book at a time. and since i have yet to finish the governor's wife, which i purchased last week, i left the store empty-handed. the rest of the afternoon, i spent it with two of my loves -my nieces. no matter what kind of day i'm having, or how tired or angry i am, spending time with the girls, always cheers me up and makes my heart smile. my oldest niece is 11 and her sister, is 4. both of them are growing up so fast. i love spending time with them, asking them about their world and listening to their stories. we laugh and laugh. i don't see them very often because of the whole "my ex sister-in-law hates my brother" thing, so when i do get to spend time with them, i cherish it immensely.
next stop after dropping off the girls? my friend's wine bar. he's only been opened about a month. but by the looks of the full parking lot, it would seem that business is thriving. not to shabby for a saturday afternoon. good for him. i visited with him for a little while, in between his tending to his customers, and we caught up on each others' lives. when it was time for me to leave, he presented me with a gift. a bottle of one of my favorite wines. i almost squealed with excitement! i thanked him and bid him and his girlfriend (who is one of the bartenders at the bar) adieu.
the rest of my day was spent tending to things that i
all is well in my world, hope all is well in yours too.
