Ruby and Bon Jovi

So it's been some week. We had to say goodbye to our 2004 Chevy Optra, Ruby, this week as she died. Oh, she could be revived, to the tune of $2500. But for a seven year old car with 180 000 km on it, we decided it was more feasible to buy a new car - we will be greeting our as-yet unnamed 2006 Pontiac G5 sometime in the next week-ish. This isn't incredibly great financially either - but the salesman at the lot has offered us a great financing deal and is looking to see if he can have both car payments rolled into one and just paid out over a longer period of time as opposed to two payments a month for the next two years. We appreciate this.

On a much happier note, however, we got to celebrate a belated Valentine's Day. Yesterday, my mom got to spend her birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUMMY!) with her two grandsons as Ari took me, for my Valentine's gift, to see THIS awesome concert in Montreal ... yup. Jon Bon Jovi. Ari likes the rock'n'roll, I like the guy. This concert worked just fine for both of us.

Here's to a fun weekend, and a new week ahead - Happy Family Day Ontario!
