All Moved

As of Saturday the hubby and I have officially moved to Ann Arbor. Yay! We took possession of the new apartment a week ago Thursday, moved that Saturday, but didn't finish up all the cleaning and stuff at the old apartment until this last Saturday. This of course means that now is the time of unpacking... Joy. I have to admit it IS kind of fun finding new places to put things. Then there are the books... We simply do not have enough shelf space for all our books- and this after having given away/selling to Schuler's something like 7 boxes of books. We'll just have to see about getting another bookcase. Darn. ;) Leo likes having the bookshelves in his room- they're at slightly different heights, so he gets to have fun going from one to another.

Long winding ramblings )

Still busy trying to get everything in order, not to mention finding a new job. But I did find the time to write this- at a MINI dealership. *grins* Felix the MINI needed some scheduled maintenance done, luckily he still falls under the 3 year/30,000 miles warranty. So far- I'm really liking this dealership/service folks. They've got WiFi, a nice waiting area, and the people are very polite. Hubby is here with me, and we enjoyed oogling all the MINIs on the lot. Some very pretty versions, making me think I need to get a roof decal for Felix. :)

I should be around more- maybe even posting more! Ooooh!

New Car

Okay, so this has been in the works for a couple days, but I was afraid of jinxing it, so I didn't say anything.

As of tonight, I am the very proud owner of a red 2008 MINI Cooper!!

It was a really lucky thing, the husband has made a habit of car shopping- long before the accident. He found an ad from a private seller, and we contacted her a couple days ago. Went out and saw the car, test drove it- loved it. Few more days of negotiations- oh, did I mention that the seller was actually in New York? We were dealing with her friends here, and e-mail/texting her.

Yeah, that made for some interesting (read stressful) times. She was interested in selling quickly because she was heading back to Taiwan for the winter break. After a flurry of e-mails and texts, and the extreme kindness of her friends, we got everything settled and tonight I drove the car home.

I loves it. The car doesn't have a name yet, but I'm sure it will shortly. Will post some pictures after I get a chance to take them.
