anyone ever heard of volkswagen?

I now drive a 2011 Volkswagen Jetta.  I'm completely smitten with it.  We bonded, my Jetta and I, within minutes of me driving off the lot.  In fact, when we left the lot at 4:02pm on Thursday the car had 28 miles on it.  By Saturday at 4:00pm, it had 205 miles on it.  I had to show it around town.  You know, all of the hang out spots.

All I can see in this photo is the little bit of schmutz on the letter E. 
I have to go out and clean that off, now.
Of course, it doesn't bother me enough to take another photo.

I've had three cars in my life - a Ford Mustang, a Toyota Spyder MR2 and now my new VW.  I loved my Mustang (Molly) and my Spyder (Kashi)...but my new car is by far my favorite.  That's right.  It's that good.  And the Germans aren't even paying me to say that.  YET.

Now this begs the question....Why has no one told me about Volkswagen before now?  What kind of friends let me walk around in my German carless life?  I mean what's a simple, "Hey, Paige - you know what make of car would be really good for you?  VOLKSWAGEN."  See...that would have taken five seconds.  But OH, NO.  No one bothered.  People just don't care anymore.

My new bff.  I wonder what his name will be...

However, after the fact I've had no less than fifteen people say, "Oh, yeah...that Jetta suits you."  Well, thanks.  Thanks a heap.  I know that now

But I forgive you.  I know I have to learn these things on my own.  It'll make me stronger.  I'll be fine. 

Now I know.

And I might be converted for life.


I'm a VW believer now.

...from my mother's flower garden.

Maybe the Easter Bunny will bring me a macro lens.

what happens when i open this door...

....OH!  So this is where I put my blog!  I was wondering where I'd left that.  So glad I found it. *Whew*

I know, I know.  I'm a loser.  Abandoning my blog like old socks.  I'm ever so sorry.  I've thought about the blog and it's adorable, sweet readers every day.  A thought pops into my head and I think, "Oooo...I really must make a post about that!"  And theeeeen....nothing.  

When I get sad, I think of the blog.  When I'm happy,  I think of the blog.  When something funny happens, I laugh.  Then I think of the blog.  Then I think, "Hmm...probably shouldn't post that on the blog."  (These insights into my head are riveting, aren't they?)

I have thought about you guys a lot.   All of the comments and emails asking me if I'm dead and threatening bodily harm if I don't post soon are very sweet.  I both fear and love you.  In your face, Machiavelli.

The quote that sums up the last two weeks of my life was uttered by one of my co-workers: "Just don't break it."  I'm working on that in my life in general.

What did I do when I wasn't writing random stuff in here all this time?  Who knows. 

You know what this place needs?  (Yes, besides posts more frequent than Halley's comet.)  It needs photogs.  I'm going to take some.  Not sure what of, but I miss photogs, too. 

There now...I've gone and promised you some pictures.  Am I rambling?  I'm tired.  I'm going to take a nap.

what's that noise?

I heard my blog whimpering and crying in the corner so I thought I'd come over and see if it was okay.'s lonely. 

I'm sorry that I've been MIA yet again this year.  Lots of stuff going on.  However, right now it's 9:54pm and since I've slept a total of 8 hours in the past 48, I'm going to reacquaint myself with my bed. 

I'll be back soon.  Honest.

mommy text

I got this text this week from my mom.  So cute.  It made me smile. More evidence that I'm still two.  Tengo dos años.
