LIFE: Where I bought myself a BIG birthday present

I'm crazy.

Yesterday was my 36th birthday.  I decided to go "look" at cars.  I need a new one desperately and was going to do it soon but didn't truly think it would happen on my actual birthday.  But it did.

After a loooong day and process, I left the Hyundai dealership in a "used" 2008 Sonata. 

It's a pretty pewter grey/silver.  I freaking love this car.  It's a fully loaded V6 with a sunroof.  So quiet, you cannot hear the engine, it's that quiet.  No leather but that's OK by me because I prefer cloth.  I got a steal of a deal on it, thanks to my pal Jen who was my "talker"  :-)  So now the fun begins...I get to re-budget my finances to fit in a $300 car payment and full coverage insurance.  Things are gonna be LEAN for a while.  But, I deserve it.  I think anyway.  But now I don't have a car that people laugh at or my friends make fun of because the belts squeal. 

Happy Birthday to me!

P.S. - I have awesome friends too, btw.  I got a ton of Facebook and other online happy birthday wishes and I love them all for 'em!  I am truly blessed :)

LIFE: Where I am feeling a bit blue

I can feel it coming on.

My wintertime/Christmas "I'm single and all alone with no one to kiss under the mistletoe" depression. I've been ignoring it but it's getting harder and harder to keep on ignoring it. All my potential guy prospects never panned out, it was a few dates and it was over and the one remaining eligible guy has decided to "date" this nasty junkie looking girl from his past who looks like she smells bad. So even if he did ask me out or whatever, I think I'd have to say no and ick. Sad thing is, this guy is great and could have any woman he wanted. So why does he have to go back in time with her when he could look to the future with me (or someone else who bathes and is without track marks on her arm?)

Anyway, I should just focus on me right? Forget about men/guys/boys and just keep busy with doing for me? Sounds easy but I have a sneaking suspicion that it won't be so easy. It sucks though becuase it's almost like everyone around me is suddenly coupled up or freaking engaged. That really sucks. I feel like it's everyone but me. Poor poor pitiful me. (Thanks you Linda Ronstadt)

Oh well. It is what it is. I will try really super hard to forget about the opposite sex and become selfish and work on me.

P.S. - pathetic to ask for a month long Match.com or EHarmony membership for Christmas? Yeah, I thought so too...
