A Mini For My Mommy!

My mom's birthday present came home today. My dad surprised her with a new, blue Mini Cooper, a car she has long coveted but never expected to get. This is a big purchase in my family. We are far from wealthy. So you should have seen the look on my mom's face when my dad handed her the keys. Once it sunk in that the car was really hers, she did a little dance. And my mom totally deserves it too.

I offered to loan her my "Awake" CD to play in the Mini on her way to school tomorrow (she's a second grade teacher) to properly welcome the car into the family.

Now I'm buying the family car (a bit dented 1999 Altima) from the parents. Along with moving into my own place this weekend, I'm feeling a little more independent.
