Kimmy, I'm sorry to hear about your brother's cancer; I hope he recovers completely.

Thanks.  He had his consultation with the surgeon and they believe there is not much chance that the cancer has spread, and that the surgery to remove the affected area should be quite easy. So that's good news.

Lindsey and I have things sort of patched up for the time being. I guess that's good, maybe.

I am really liking my new job.  Kids are getting adjusted again and COVID count is on a downward curve.  I'm feeling hopeful about the future.

I have a huge milestone bday coming up, and I'm thinking of buying myself a new car to celebrate.  I've outgrown sporty and the roads are too saturated with SUV's.  I'm thinking something luxury. 

A proper mid-life crisis car that says IDGAF, I survived divorce, COVID and unemployment and I'm back bitches!

Drinks, song, personally-brought snacks and drinks... all our friends will see Eazy and he will be able to SAY THEIR NAMES ...

I assure you there will be the welling of tears ...

You can certainly get sporty/luxury if you are willing to pay for it. Even sporty/luxury/SUV's.

True, there's even luxury minivans, though that's like the antithesis of a middle age crisis car.  I've been looking at sedans -- Tesla, Lexus and BMW. 

I've always thought that spending a lot on a car is stupid, I don't know why I'm getting this urge now.  I work two days a week outside the house and generally don't leave my neighbourhood other than a road trip once or twice a year. 

I will likely just buy a lower end model of something nice.  It's fun to window shop for now.

I'm welling up just reading this.   :)

Something about a Jaarman car alright. Hard to go back after you have had one even if they do depreciate and can be expensive to maintain. My Audi has been great, eight years old and no problems but only 85,000 km. Hard to beat their interiors.

Toronto opened up like a music box tonight...

The Italian team won a Euro Cup game this afternoon, and the street just popped... Italian flags.... young girls in cutoff shorts walking and gossiping, chewing gum. 

We didn't appreciate the lives we had before

I haven't looked at Audi, but owners really do love them.  If you don't mind sharing, which model?

Q5 I’m afraid, an SUV.

A buddy of mine has an Audi A3 S-line and his wife has the sporty Audi TT.  They love them.  Very solid little cars.  I wouldn’t call them luxurious, but they’re definitely a step up in terms of quality of interiors.  All wheel drive. 

However, there’s a few downsides to owning them…. Parts are expensive.  I’m not sure that they’re as reliable as say a Lexus.
