    Drove 90 minute to go get a Monterey for Boo . . .

    And guess what I came home with ??


    NOTHING !!!


    No, it's still in stock.
    Even in the colours he wants (black & red).


    But - I left my wallet on my desk at home : (


    3 hours of my day wasted

    But DH is on his way to pick it up now for me - he works about half way between home and the store I went to. What a wonderful man !!

    I don't think I'd know whether to laugh at the fact I managed to forget my wallet and not realize it, or cry that I had to come home empty handed.

    Do please tell us how nice (or not) the new covers are.

    Closer to the tears end of that. I felt awful, and embarrassed.

    But I've heard from DH - he has the seat, and is on his way home.

    Wouldn't have fussed so much about getting it NOW, except that it's on for $99.95 right now, and it's normally about $170.

    I've done that before. We went to BBBaby, and i didn't have my wallet. That sucked.

    I didn't ask. The floor model was the grey & pink though - I'd call first, it's quite a drive (further than I'd remembered it to be).

    And I'll gladly let you guys keep your own germs.
