You Have Been the One for Me

James Blunt puts it best when I think about how I feel letting my cute car, Ebby, go. (Title and link are by Mr. Blunt.) Here are some of the lyrics:

I've been addicted to you.
Goodbye my Lover, Goodbye my Friend.
You have been the one for me.

Enough of the sappy love song. I will miss my Ebby. Michael and I decided to sell my car and buy an older model. This is so we can later afford a Pilot in a couple of years and pay mostly in cash. (Check out Brett's Financial Advice Link to the right for some great tips.) So, Michael's parents bought Ebby and Michael bought the green car today.

Friday night, we went out with the Avances to the Melting Pot.
They had a coupon (ended up we couldn't use it) and I got to experience fondue for the first time. If you've never been there before, you at least have to try out their desserts. FABULOUS!!

So school has started. I have good classes so far, but they are so large! I'll keep you updated throughout the year on how things go. My 3rd year to teach the same things helps. I can't believe this is already my fifth year to teach!

I am proud of you and Michael! Brad and I did Financial Peace University at our church about 3 1/2 years ago. We bought a car with cash and it was a pretty awesome experience. It makes it really nice when you want to trade it in for another car too.

We went to the Melting Pot with my family a few years ago. It was a neat experience. The dessert is the best part. Fondue just doesn't fill you up for dinner. And it takes FOREVER to finish (at least for us it took almost 3 hours!).

I'm officially a blogger now. Sorry this comment is so long. I guess I have a lot to say:)
