We have been going through craigslist and grocery store bulletin boards for vehicles. Yesterday we walked along a street that had tons of secondhand cars for sale. It's kind of fun. Some kind of car we can use while we are staying at grandmas. It makes sense because we've had to get around all over and spent a lot on transportation. We also think it would really change up visibly if we had more stuff in the car and bigger paintings. Sometimes people ask if we have more art and larger. We also just don't know whT the next few months are going to hold. Our vision boards have a lot of ideas! It was pretty funny going into car lots and asking if they had a car with stick shift for $500. We can't afford an electric car and the next most envirofriendly car is getting a manual transmission. Besides stick shift is a REAL car ha ha.
I also feel like I don't have a lot to blog about. Right now I'm sitting in bed watching Regis and Kelly for the first time in weeks typing this from my phone. Mostly we just run around doing crazy errands the last few weeks. It feels so good to just sit in my pjs. One funny thing that has surprised Stagg and would probably surprise a lot of people is I've been okay with not watching Ll my shows and movies. We don't have a tv anymore or DVD player they totally melted. We can't even imagine amday we could go buy a tv ya know? We figure at this point we're pushing it by getting some kind of vehicle. Grandmas tv doesn't have cable and all shows cut out. Sometimes when I can't sleep I watch this crazy retro channel with shows like Perry Mason or Policewoman or Mary Tyler Moore. Combined with the cut off neighborhood in boonies the grandma furniture it's like we're in another world and era. Then of course the planes flying over cut out half the shows reception. Argh. But the surprisenfor Stagg is that I am not missing watching all my shows and pop crude. He thought I was just addicted ha ha. But I don't even know who is still on Survivor. Or what's happening on Bravo shows I usually watch heh heh. I am completely out of it with tv and pop culture. I did near the vey sad news about Elizabeth Edwards and her can er. The whole situation with John Edwards is really compelling is 't it? Immean he could have been President, he might ha e had th chance to be even more popular than Barack Obama.
Sometimes I've lucked out with one of my beloved British mysteries on PBS. I ha e caught a couple Wallander which I love he is a Swedish cop and it's such a cool series. I like both versions one from Sweden and one from UK. Also Inspector Morse and Inspector Lewis. I am crazy about th youn actor Lawrence Fox on that series. I will one day just rent or download the othe tv shows I normally watch. It's just pike we are on a massive camping trip staying at grandmas in the burbs.
I had the most exciting news yesterday. My friend Tricia is suddenly back from Scotland!!!! She had planned to be overseas for a few more months but suddenly had to come back to US. I am sorry she had to cut br trip shorter but selfishly I am beyond excited to have her back. We talked on th phone and I almost started crying I was so excited and she is coming to stay with us for a couple days today or tomorrow. We already started thinking about cool road trips to plan.
Okay time to make coffee....
