The good news is...

...that we sold the car within 2 hours of putting it out for sale. People were practically lining up to test drive it! Literally! The buyers DID get a ridiculously good price...but considering we only had 2 weeks to sell it before we move...we'll call it good.

As luck would have it, we'll be living near the bus-line and an extensive bike trail system. Ok--so Vinny and I will now be tied to the hip when it comes to (non-public) transportation... but I figure that:
#1. It's good for our relationship
#2. We'll be much more environmentally friendly

...and that, I guess you could say, is a good thing.

I never liked driving a damn mini-van anyway--it was very damaging to my tough grrl image. ha! Not to mention, if I want, I can READ on the bus. :) As for the new car...I no longer have any doubts that we made the right decision.

The universe works in strange (although sometimes vexing) ways. I think I'll call it a night.

Maybe it's because I'm a Mom, maybe it's because I live in Utah, but I LOVE my mini-van.

When I'm not cursing it for being a broken piece of crap, that is.

Not even a mini-van could damage your image loralee!

to all mini-van drivers:
I hope I do not offend.

if you're from Utah and you drive a mini-van then you are TOTALLY cool in my book.

Wow, things are lining up for you. You keep asking, being specific about what you need, and there it is. I like this kind of magic.

I'm not a fan of mini vans AT ALL!
Having grown up walking, riding buses and trains I hope that you find some pleasure in it and that the public transportation system is good.

I'll repeat what I wrote about your job-search post - everything else is falling into place. It's only a matter of a little time before the job completes the picture. :)
