Good morning! I am ecstatic to report that we are now less one white suburban and the proud owners of one white station wagon named Gertie. Lynley could not be more pleased. I am secretly extremely happy for her and my family but I can't show it. I don't want her to get the idea that I don't still want a new more gas efficient car. You know, guilt goes a long way with her and if I play my cards just right a newer car may be in my not to very distant future.

Don't laugh. I have to play the cards I was dealt. Just for the record it is still not fair, not fair, not fair!

The kiddos have weathered the new car buying experience rather well. I think they are very happy about the decision. They traded in a car with out an entertainment system and upgraded to a DVD player. The neat thing for them is that cars usually only come with two headsets and when the salesman noticed our problem he gladly ran back into the showroom and came back out holding a shiny new third set of headphones. This small gift brought the kids extreme happiness and us extreme peace.

Life is going well with the kids. They have all transitioned nicely into their new classes, schools, and lives. Even Ainsley seems to be adjusting to her new surroundingd although I was totally grossed out when I picked her up today and learned that one of the kids in the day care had shown up with lice. Ick. None the less, we have been inspecting the kiddos by the minute and have washed everything that had been to the school.

Well, I had best be off. There is a mountain of purpose before me today.
