Saying Goodbye to Yet ANOTHER Honda!

OK, so I know you're all dying from shock because I am actually posting again. Because I've been out of the blog scene for quite some time, I have a ton to catch up on. This post will feel familiar to a post I did about 6 months ago when we said goodbye to my Honda Accord. Well, last November, we had to say goodbye to Jere's Accord as well. Most people would say we are just having a lot of bad luck, but both times have turned out to be blessings because in both cases, our insurance company paid for replacement cars that were newer, nicer and had much less mileage on them than our poor Accords.

This car we replaced with a 1996 Honda Odyssey that only has 100,000 miles on it (as opposed to our old 1992, two-door, that had over 200,000 miles on it.) So yes, I have finally entered the realm of mini-vans and quite frankly, I've enjoyed it quite a bit. Now when any of you come to visit, I no longer have to request that you squish in the back between the kids' carseats. And now if more than one of you come to visit at a time, I will be able to pick you all up in just one vehicle. Fabulous!

A New Ashlee!

Ashlee got a really cute haircut about 3 weeks ago. On the way to the salon, she was in a bad mood and kept telling me that she didn't want to cut her hair, that she wanted long hair forever. I kept thinking it was going to be a bad experience and kept bracing myself for tears and chaos in general. When we got there, I found a picture of a short bob and showed it to her. I asked her if she liked it and she suddenly said, "Yep. I think I want that one." I handed her over to the hairdresser and waited patiently in the waiting area. Not long after, I got a child that I didn't even recognize! AND, Ashlee was very happy with it (phew!) So happy, that she spent quite some time in front of the mirror when we got home admiring what a pretty girl she was.
