tidbits

We had a special occasion today! T-bone, the name for our beloved Honda Accord, rolled over to 100,000 miles. He's been such a good car - commuting in the 'burbs, sitting in the garage in Chicago and battling for parallel parking spots, driving the streets of LA and cross-country back to Bloomington. We're hoping he lives a long, fulfilling life (at least another 50,000 miles).

Gas hit $3.90 here late last week and it's backed off a little since then. I can't get over the days when I first got my license and could fill up for $12. Those days are long gone.

Ben started his new internship at a local bank yesterday (woo hoo!). He's super excited. Now we're both trying to get out of the house at the same time in the morning so navigating the one bathroom is getting trickier. It's funny to me what some people consider luxurious for a home (walk-in closets, furnished basements, etc.) and we'd be happy just to have another 1/2 bath! I think living in a city changes your definition of space. Bigger is NOT always better.

Our Accord, Chez Whitey, just turned 150K yesterday, and she has at least another 50K still in her.
