Catching Up

Phew! We had a long, busy trip to NY. A lot of airport frustration and early mornings. When we got back yesterday I took a four hour nap, and then managed to still get about 8 hours of sleep last night. But we had a lot of fun and visited with a lot of Josh's step-family. Plenty of good food and rounds of Banangrams. Also, last Wednesday before we left for the trip, we went out and bought a car. I can't tell you how grown-up that made us feel. We must be adults now, right? We have a mortgage, a retirement account, and we just paid cash for a car. We bought a used 2007 Honda Fit. It only had 39K miles on it though, which is quite low for a 3 year old car and for a Honda, infamous for their long lifespans. It's cute, will allow us to fit a third person in even once it's packed with Josh's drums, and most importantly it's an automatic so I can learn to drive more easily. I haven't gotten to take it for a spin yet, since we took off for NY right after buying it and just got back in yesterday. But I look forward to doing that soon! We feel pretty good about the price we paid, just under 15.5K, after TT&L and a complete warranty through to 100K miles. Not bad, right?

As for the rest of my news, we went to Niagara Falls and the George Eastman House while we were in NY, but due to all that sleep I needed I haven't uploaded any of my pictures yet. Hopefully I'll get around to that this week and I'll have something to share soon!
