New Members in the Family

No, Dad, we're not expecting. :-) But we do have two new members of the family to celebrate. The first is my beautiful new Toyota Prius. Such a fun car, and it gets likes 500 miles to the gallon. OK, it only gets about 50 miles to the gallon. That's all...

Second, and more exciting, the wife and I reached a deal to buy a house!! We made an offer on Wednesday, followed by 6 counter-offers. We finally agreed on a price, which means we will soon have a home to call our own. No more back and forth trips to Michigan. No more explaining why we have multiple apartments. Just the two of us in a beautiful house in Zionsville. Woo hoo!

And the added twist that makes the whole story funny... The call informing us of the counter-offer which we accepted arrived while we were signing the papers for the car. So yes, we bought a car and a house within about 15 minutes of each other. Well, ignoring all those details like closing and inspections, but you get the idea.

Such an exciting weekend. I don't think I can take many more of those.

Congrats Mike! The Prius rules! Olivia's got an echo that gets an amazing 42 mpg ... but she really wants a prius when she decides to upgrade. :) And yay on the house, that's awesome. :)
