....a long over-due post. Many fun things are amiss Chez Byers these days.

Firstly, on Monday I won tickets to see the Fray. This concert will likely sell out, and I won them before anyone could buy them. I'll be on the lawn, but I'll be there! *grins*

Secondly, the Purple-Piece-Of-Shit has been retired. They gave me $600 for it, and I was able to drive a brand-new Mazda 3i Touring off the lot last night. Before anyone wonders, since I am worried about money, we recently made our last hefty lease payment for our van and have decided to buy it outright. The combined payments for both cars will be marginally more than our old van payment. The plus side is that I now have reliable transportation! It's bright red, making me feel like I have a flourescent car, but it's way cute. Griffin has gone from calling it "The Big Red Car" to "Lightning McQueen." He's loving it.

Further to Byers news, Griffin and Erin got bikes from Grandma and Grandpa Byers for their birthday. They got the first chance to ride them the other night, and Griffin's taken to it like a duck to water. Erin, on the other hand, has inherited her oldest brother's timid nature and is a little slower to bike. All in all, some good times ahead for the Byers clan, in addition to some scrapes and bruises.

Congrats on the new car! And I'm so jealous about the Fray tickets, they are one of my current favorite bands. (If you had won BNL tickets, I'd seriously be stalking you. hehe)

I SOOO wish I were going to the Fray, but sadly, student loan money begs to differ. Glad to hear you're having a good week - when you get the chance, call, and I'll bitch about mine :-)

I really like the 3 & the 6. Can't wait to see the new car. :) And it's super cool that the new payments aren't much more than the old payment. :)
