(Here's your long awaited post Allison!!!)
I don't even know where to begin.
My life has forever changed and I am afraid I will never get the innocence of my youth back.
My cool points have totally been depleted and I am sitting at a big fat ZERO balance.
I feel old.
I feel like every stereotype that ever was.
Why did we make this decision right before a birthday that will officially put me into my thirties?
Hi blog world. My name is Melissa and I....
......I drive a minivan!
Oh, to see those words on the screen still make my heart skip a beat, and not in the new puppy love sort of way.
That's right, the Halford family now owns, like the other 97% of the middle American population, a minivan. We are the new owners of a Honda Odyssey.
I know I know...All you minivan moms out there. Don't tell me how much I am going to love it and how in a few short month I won't be able to imagine my life without it. I know. I just don't want to be known as a minivan mom. I still can't get out of my mind that my next car isn't going to be a great little two door stick shift Jeep circa 1985. I am sure in time I will treasure all the handy features of my new ride. I am sure one day all of those safety features it took the sales guy a half an hour to go over will save me from a hazardous accident. And when that time comes, all vanity will be pushed aside and I will be thankful, but until then....
I pray that the Lord will allow me to shuttle around my kids as much as possible because I didn't feel the lowest of low until I was driving around town...by myself...in a minivan...and caught a glimpse of my reflection in an office building window. (Ouch...cue the tears!)
Atleast my husband loves me enough to throw in this fresh tshirt for me to wear while driving my new ride...
Thanks baby! I love you, and the new car too!
