Our Thanksgiving was quiet but expensive. A yr ago this month (DEC) I got my new 2012 Ford Mustang GT. This yr was hubby's turn. He got his brand new 2014 GMC Denali 3500K dually truck. It's fully loaded, with in seat heating and cooling, zone A/C (means he have his side warm and I can have my side cool), Sun roof, rear back up camera, full navigational consul, On Star (6 months), XM radio (3 months), crew cab, 6 CD changer, AM/FM/ USB, and he can remote star it, etc. All it didn't have was the running boards (they are ordered) and the fifth wheel hook up (paid for and coming soon). This will now be his daily driver. We'll get the old truck a paint job then sell it, as well as sell the Cavalier. Here's a picture of the new truck:
It wasn't cheap (you could buy a small house...just about) but we both know that, unless we win the lottery, these will be our last cars before retirement. Both will be paid off just about 2 yrs before that happens.
One strange thing happened...we pulled the trailer out (using the old truck) to unload the gold cart and race car...some guy drove by really slowly and it looked like he was videoing the trailer and truck...when he saw me looking at him...he dropped his phone and took off. The car didn't have ANY license plates at all on it. It makes me slightly paranoid when things like that happen and I didn't sleep well last night, waking up more then a few times to check on the trailer and cars. Everything was fine this morning..but still..makes one nervous!
As for the rest of our Thanksgiving...not a lot happened (other then the truck). We just kind of stayed home. No Brown Thursday (although we did have to run out Thursday morning for eggs and coffee), no Black Friday (got our deal Nov 23), no what ever color they call Saturday or Sunday shopping. We did hit Starbucks each morning. I wasn't the best there, Thursday was a Skinny Peppermint Latte (not that bad), a Egg Nog Latte Friday, Saturday was a Gingerbread latte (both fully loaded!), then Sunday a Caramel Brulée with non fat and no whip (better then the two previous days!). Thanksgiving dinner wasn't bad either. Mostly stayed with in reach of my calories range...but I did gain some weight (no workout for 4 days!)
Today I'm back on track at work with both eating and working out. I'm off Dec 19-25, so I'm going to have an action plan for those days!
OK..that's about it..have a great first Monday of Dec! Now for a whole month of Christmas funnies!!
