It’s Only Money, Right? Heh, heh… Right???

I’m not sure if I’m getting anywhere, but at least I’m doing my part to stimulate our sluggish economy.

I began my Memorial Day by scheduling my first colonoscopy (talk about something you’ll always remember), and then my smirking wife and I traveled to Baton Rouge to see our good friend, Roland. We have been a Saturn family for years now, mostly because we are a Roland family. I’d trust Roland with anything, so trusting him with our automotive needs is an easy one.

We did a two-for-one deal: we trade in two of our cars, and get one in return. Our new digs in Malibu will make it so we can easily be a one-car family, so we wanted to make sure we had a dependable ride for the next three years or so. Well, we accomplished that, and then some: we got a sweet 2008 Saturn Aura with the deluxe bells and whistles package.

I’m thinking about my friend, John Dobbs, non-stop, and he called me this morning to hear all about my new car, since he loves these new Saturn Auras. I cannot wait to give John a ride when he makes it back to the Gulf Coast.

Well, buying a new car didn’t resurrect our sluggish economy overnight, so I had to get back on the credit card wagon again today. Now, I’ve ordered my laptop computer for law school. A brand new Dell product should be heading my way at some point in the new future, and though I hope it isn’t my best friend for the next three years, I have this funny feeling that we will get to be real close.

I’ve suddenly got a new car and a new laptop on the way. I’ve been researching my new insurance agent and Saturn dealer, both of whom happen to be on Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica. I’ve realized that the big countdown now stands at 68 days.

Our move is beginning to sink in.

    Sweet! Does it have a sun-roof? Just thinking about driving out in that Malibu / Pacific Coast sunshine.
