It's been an unusually busy week, but I have a few random things to mention, and thought I'd throw together a little post.
First , my husband and I did something really out of character last week: we bought a van on Ebay! What?! I know. But all of the details have worked out amazingly, thanks to Eric's siblings. His sister and her husband picked the van* up at the dealership near their Chicago suburb, and then it was driven back here by Eric's brother who was headed this way from Michigan! Any other proud Odyssey owners out there? Anyone else willing to admit to buying a car on the INTERNET?!
Second, I had the opportunity last week to help out at the Compassion table for this tour. If you're a sponsor, I would encourage you to consider volunteering at one of these concerts or a similar event. I'd thought about doing it for years, and finally decided to dive in!
Third, and I told you this was random!, do you remember when I showed you this map of our family who's scattered all over the country? Well, my aunt who used to live in south Florida, recently moved to the South American country of Chile. I hadn't done anything yet to change her location, but I just noticed it had been sort of taken care of for me. On its own, the string fell and is now pointing south. You can tell I'm tired right now because I actually thought this was funny and decided to take a picture!
So, as I said, just wanted to check in with a few random things. Feel free to comment, of course, although I understand if you don't really have anything to say after reading all that! =)
*Sorry the van pic isn't the best. It was -2 outside, and I didn't really want to stand around getting the best angle. I realize the paint looks messed up, but I assure you it's just shadows! The van is in excellent condition.
