It's a truck, not a 2011 Toyota Sienna

We are officially a two car family.
The last 5 years have been rough I tell you, rough!
Ok, not really, several of those years I still had access to a car because Superman was working graveyard shifts thus the car was home and ready for my use.
Not that I used it much back then, I had no where to go. ;D

These last few months without a car have been pretty hard though.  
With all of our friends meeting at the park to play without us.
With Bear starting kindergarten.
With three kids and only a double stroller.
With me being outnumbered and kids unrestrained going every which way.
Enough to drive a person nuts.

So, Superman, realizing the uphill climb it would be for me to trudge through waist high snow to walk Bear to and from school each day this winter with the two little ones in tow, decided we could not wait another minute to get a second car.

My hero!

Of course he did decide that it needed to run on natural gas and would most certainly be a truck.


Not a 2011 Toyota Sienna for me.

SOB ={

I begged and cried and promised him that anytime he had to drive the 2011 Toyota Sienna I would be sure to sit in the passenger seat wearing nothing but a bikini so he would feel his manhood with a certain frenzy, lol!  (no not really;)

I told him that I refused to get a truck, that all my life I promised myself that I would never be the kind of person to drive some country bumpkin, hound dog haulin,  red neck truck!
(Not really, lol, I am a red neck country loving kind of person, but that is basically what Superman told me about getting a mini van and that he wouldn't hear of it ;)
(My brother in law was the one who suggested I throw that remark back at him, lol!  
Thanks for that laugh bro ;)

Superman prevailed.
He is stronger than I am after all.

No worries though, I always wanted Superman to have a truck, they are really good for hauling stuff.
I also have never expected Superman to buy me a 2011 Toyota Sienna, I've been planning to save the money myself.

Someday I will get my 2011 Toyota Sienna, I look forward to that day,
until then I shall be grateful to have a car to drive through waist high snow instead of freezing my derrière walking through it.
I really do hate to be cold and all.

Superman did good, it is a nice truck :D

I'm sad he got the truck and you didn't get your Sienna. :( But I am very glad you have a car now!

We're down to one car currently and looking ahead towards maybe getting another in the future ... my husband has his mind absolutely set on something already (randomly, a Nissan Versa ... he loves how small it is ... figure that one out!). I would've been pulling for you and the Sienna! :) At least if you ever have to haul stuff around the truck will come in handy.
