One accomplishment that I can say about myself is that I succeeded in buying a car all by myself. After months of trying to figure out what we should do about our beloved but expensive to maintain LandRover, we decided to sell/trade it in for something smaller and more reliable. In conclusion, I got over my shyness and passiveness, and got exactly what we needed for the Landrover, talked down the price 2K on a subaru in great condition, and also got a warrantyon it. I never thought I could but a car without getting completely taken, but I actually enjoyed it, mostly I enjoy knowing I got what paid for. You know you've got a good deal when you make your car dealer say, "your killing me Molly!" Hehe, thank you , thank you...
We did finally get a little break last weekend. We drove to Bozeman, with Deanna and Jason for a little two day trip celebrating Neal and Deanna's birthday. Bozeman is a great city, it is set in a valley, so there is a great view of the Mountains, and the old town buildings have been kept up well. It has a few colleges, a ski resort and has managed to maintain a small town feel (bc it is a small town). Neal and I both could see ourselves living there if we are to stay in Montana. I'll let Neal tell you about the most amazing dinner that we had, himself especially. All I will say is that I will soon be calling him Elmer Fudd. Of course i didn't take any pictures! I am so bad about that. Don't you wish there was a picture fairy that could take the snapshots of all your favorites memories, so you didn't have to? Oh well, maybe one day. Here are a few from the trip:

Neal and I are very blessed and we very much enjoy the space. Recently we have converted one of our extra rooms in what I like to call "the cure for cabin fever". We both have all these little projects going on that we usually don't finish before we have to pick them up, but this room lets it all hang out there until we can finish them. So when the temperature hits 20 below and we think that there is nothing to do, we can just go to that room. If only it had an espresso machine in it. Wouldn't it be lovely? As I finish these projects, I will be sure to post them! see ya soon.
