Subie Deux

                                                                          I was finally able to pick up my new car tonight!! I'm guessing the dealership was motivated to get it out the door before the end of 2013, but I'm not going to argue. It will never be my Subie, and it might not be a Volvo, but I think my new Subaru Crosstrek is pretty slick. Sunroof, XM Radio, built-in GPS, heated seats. Oh and the first time I put it in  reverse? Yeah, that's how I learned about the back up cam.  Yeah, I'm pretty excited. 

Welcome home, Subie Deux. You've got a lot to live up to!

Wyatt wouldn't let me put up a Festivus Pole...

So we settled on a Christmas tree.

We'll be spending our first MN Christmas by ourselves. I'm looking forward to a quiet few days, but will miss seeing my grandpa, and I'm sure W will miss spending time with his fam.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, and A Festivus for the Rest of Us!

Can't a girl get a break?

As if totaling my beloved Subie and living with chronic, explosive, facial pain wasn't bad enough, everything else seems to be conspiring against me as well.

Insurance took so long sorting out the value and issuing a check, that actually finding a new car is becoming near impossible. I'm now on a waiting list, fingers and toes crossed, that the car I want is available by the end of the year.

Meanwhile, my boss is laying an egg over the fact that I don't have a car yet. Oh. And he is less than pleased that I didn't go with his suggestion. Because apparently a Volvo wagon is the only acceptable job with which one can do the job.

I'm trying to dig deep and get through these last few weeks of 2013...
