It happened this morning - Summer fever. I'm so ready. I blame Mini because he keeps asking to go to the lake, but it's far too cold. But the weather hasn't stopped me from thinking ahead. Shame on me, but even with the economy like it is, I've been looking up Jeep porn. (shown above)
See, I've been having this perverted fantasy lately about trading in BBQ Jeep for a brand spanking new Mustard Jeep like the very one above. Yes, we already have a Mustard Jeep, but hubby has been driving it since I needed the grocery-getter that better fits a car seat. Then again, I'm no longer having to climb into the backseat to get Minibeast into the car seat, so it's practical again to drive Mustard. Hm...
The only thing is I'd really, really prefer an automatic transmission this go around because there is nothing that quite says OMG! We're gonna die! like being stuck at rush hour on an incline overpass in Baton Rouge and having to mind the clutch. Trust me on this. *_*
The next vehicle will definitely be a Jeep, because that's how I roll, but there is this long standing prophecy in our house that since we do have a Mustard, the next Jeep that follows must be a Ketchup. Matching set and all that, ya know? Not sure how I feel about that, but there it is.
Anyway, it's just a racy daydream. The only affordable summer prep I can do at this point is make a mixtape (mix CD?) for the future. I think I might just do that. If anyone actually reads this, what are your "summer songs"? You know, those songs that just scream summer time to you when you hear them?
Sublime is my summer band/album of choice. I'd have posted a vid of What I Got, but everything on youtube is embedding disabled. That album reminds me of the summer of 1996, when hubby and I had the Blazer S10. What a rockin' little vehicle to take to the beach. That thing was covered with sand inside and out by the end of that summer, and Oldest (who was 5 at the time) had a stack of floaties and sandbuckets tossed in the back. There just about wasn't room for anything else back there. Great times. That truck smelled like coconut sunscreen for at least 3 months after summer. ^_^
At any rate, summer fever. That's me. But there's still such a long way to go...
