On the good side, we picked up our new car today! Carm drove it partway home, then at Costco we changed vehicles so that I could drive it the rest of the way. Sweet. Not super peppy but fun to drive. It is cute as a button too. I had thought to give it a name (Elvira came to me in my sleep), but after saying good-bye to the old Suby tonight I'm not sure. It was hard enough as it was and it didn't even have a name!
So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good.
