The final countdown...

I'm about to finish my 29th trip around the sun. On Tuesday I'll turn 29 years old. My 28th year was full of fun, adventure, and chaos. I got married, went through some real heartache processing my relationship with my dad, bought my first house, got a new car, we added a little puppy to our lives, we had to put my childhood dog of 16 years to sleep, my husband broke his femur and was laid up on our couch for a month, his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, his grandmother is undergoing treatment for what may be terminal stomach cancer, and I'm living in job limbo. I'd say it was about 50/50. All in all though it wasn't too bad because of the love and support from so many wonderful people.

I've got some big goals to complete before I turn 30. I'm finalizing the list right now. I'll let you know how it goes.

I love what you do for me

Yesterday, Freddie and I were headed down a busy street full of shops and restaurants and car dealerships. I'm sure you know what kind of street I'm talking about. Every town has one or two. They are usually pretty ugly, but quite convenient. Anyway, out of the blue he says,

"what do you think the Toyota symbol is?"

I started to answer...

But, then he went on, "Do you think it's a bull, or a Mexican wearing a sombrero?'

I started looking around because I thought I had misheard him. We must have passed a restaurant that I didn't see. I noticed a wings place with a bull on the logo, but it's called Buffaloes and that doesn't sound anything like Toyota, so all I could say was,


So, he said it again, "What do you think the Toyota symbol is?"

I pointed at our steering wheel and said,
"Do you mean this?"

He said,

"Yes, is it a sombrero or a bull?"

To which I replied,

"It's a T, like Toyota"

Which totally blew him away.

"I don't see it", he said.

He pointed out the bull and the sombrero, but he didn't explain to me how either of them have more to do with Toyota than the letter T.

So, what do you think?
