We won’t be homeless or riding the bus

March 22nd, 2008

We accomplished 2 big things today and it feels good to know they are taken care of now.  First, the lease on my car was up so we turned it in and leased a new one.  They were running a nice lease special so we got something a little bigger since we will soon be adding a second car seat to the back seat.  I made Steve promise he would never make me drive a mini-van so we got a cross over – part car, part mini-van, part SUV.  It gets decent gas mileage and will be big enough to have 2 car seats and luggage when we head north to visit home.   My new Nissan Rogue in sunset red:

Sigh…just 3 short years ago I was driving a red convertible.

The second thing we did was finally find a house we could both agree to rent.  We’ve looked at 8 houses.  Steve hated something about all of them.  I could have lived with any of them because I figure we aren’t buying it, just borrowing.  Today, we found one that should be great for our family.  It even has a fenced in back yard for the dog – bonus!  And the neighborhood has sidewalks which is something we both love for evening walks with Sabrina.  So in just over a month, we will be calling this place home:

Anyone want to come and pack boxes?  Hehe.

    great car, cute house. i’m in need of a new car soon, and i am looking at a cross over too. no mini van for us either, the horror!

  8. Cass Says:

    I bought a Rogue about a month ago and I LOVE it – hope you enjoy yours too. And the house is so perfect looking. I dream of houses with fenced in backyards and sidewalks…well, when I’m not busy dreaming about completely insane pregnancy dreams.

    I love the car. I’m right there with you on the packing thing. We are moving this Friday and it seems that no matter how much I pack I don’t make a dent in the amount of junk remaining to be packed!

  13. Muriel Elrod Says:

    I posted my belly shot and as you can see I am way bigger. You look good girl.

  14. Priscilla Says:

  15. Christine Says:

  16. Pocklock Says:

    Whoa. Those are two big things! All in the same day too! That’s awesome. Congrats!

  17. Sarah Says:

    Wow! What a big day! I like a family who is decisive and goes for what they need and just signs on the bottom line! Congrats! Two HUGE things to cross off that list!

    And, I meant to comment the other day about the pear blossoms on the trees… you are about 2 weeks ahead of us usually on the weather front… looking forward to seeing everything green up for spring! We had more snow today… insane!!

    Hope you had a great “Chocolate” Day! Sabrina is adorable in her bunny ears!

  18. Cheri Says:

    Congrats on both big decisions! I hope the packing/moving goes well. guess you’ll be getting out of the heavy lifting this time around. :-)

  19. Martha Says:

    I never thought I would have a mini van but I love it. It is so convenient to have the sliding doors that open at the touch of a button, but I do like the look of that new car of yours!

  20. Meredith Says:

    Cute house! Nosy me wants to know where you’ll be living (privately, of course).

    Your stalker friend,
    Meredith
