Shout Out To My Sister!



My sister helped us out this past couple weeks by helping us to get a car. This is a huge change for staying at grandmas house...we already drove to the grocery store and are able to drive around to look for apartments and "for rent" signs. And it's stick!!! Whoo hoo. This little aqua machine has got a great pep and we bought it from a mechanic/owner and it has been super well-maintained. We really had horseshoes up our ass getting this car. Stagg had an idea after I had been looking on Craigslist and in papers etc he remembered an auto shop he used to pass by on the bus...so we stopped in. At first the owner/mechanic showed us some cars which were nice, but I was bummed they were automatic. When he learned I prefered stick, he said I will sell you my old car! I have the best sister in the world...of course she had ulterior motives ha ha hoping we will drive to see her...and I think we will!

Sweet. When I hear things like this I wish I had a sister, but then at other times I'm glad I don't.

Best of luck with the apartment-hunting, guys! You should post some stories about that....apartment-hunting is always hilarious and strange.

Too bad there's not a bridge to Germany. Get those rust spots taken care of and drive carefully. It's a jungle out there.

I have no ulterior motives! Except for you guys to relax a little.

It is like your car is camo'd for glaciers.

Love the pics from TO. Had a green moment when I thought of all of you sitting around the table at S and J's...
