Just When Life is Looking Up

Just when things were starting to look up, go more smoothly, be better - wham!  Our brand new car, to us, was completely totaled in an accident barely 2 months after we bought it.  That through a major wrench in life as we have been managing all the insurance woes, as well as figuring out how to get a new car that would be just as awesome as the first one.  Sadly, the blue Matrix was 1 of 2,500 made so we had to settle a bit, but overall we found a comparable replacement.  We should be able to pick it up on Saturday so that is good.  

We also had some major house hunting to do.  We've been really unhappy in our current place for awhile.  There has been a lot of turnover in the building since we moved in 3 years ago, and the more students that move in the more noise and annoyance we are experiencing.  Luckily we found a duplex just two blocks away, in our price range, and with WAY more storage space and square footage.  We are going to be able to get in the new place starting April 7th, and we are SUPER psyched!  

I'm doing well actually, the move has given me a lot of positive energy.  I'm packing and donating and trashing like crazy.  This move is going to bring us such a welcome fresh start as a family, with more room for Baby Jules to run and play and a porch to relax in the evenings on.  The quality of our daily life is going to go WAY up and I think that is going to be very good for my mental health as well. 

I have a bunch of stuff to get posted, I'm behind again because of all the dramatic events, but slowly but surely they'll be posted:)
