Ahhhh...the joys of toddlerdom

I've read this book about a dozen times in the last 2 days. I'm actually excited it's Luke's favorite book.

I've seen this movie about a MILLION times in the last week or so. But that's okay. It's a fantastic movie. If you haven't seen it, I highly suggest it - children's movie notwithstanding, it's worth it just to 'see' Ellen Degeneres's portrayal of Dory.

If you must buy a car....

Buy it from Brown's Jeep Chrysler in Patchogue. I had to have my PT Cruiser serviced since my brake light was on and they couldn't have been more amazing. I showed up this morning at 7:20 a.m. anticipating arguing that I was supposed to have a loaner, that I'd have to wait in a long service line (like at Saturn), that I'd have to prove that I had a service warranty, but to my delight it was easy. They:

  • took me right away
  • saw that I had Lucas with me and gave me a Jeep as a loaner instead of a Charger (which I would have gladly zoomed around in)
  • answered all my questions patiently
  • helped me get Luke's carseat into the loaner
  • were friendly as all hell

AND.....what I brought the car there for is COVERED! Woo hoo!
