Insanity... on a higher level.
For those of you who may remember Samantha loves the Mazda Miata, Samantha's dream came true May 30 when we test drove and purchased her dream car. The most interesting part is the fact I bought this car with the frustrating fact in mind that the car is being left at my parent's home and will be used only on visits. Still, it is our dream vehicle and we will enjoy it immensely while in town. In fact, to get the most out of the car the last two days of our trip, we pretty much lived in the car for the weekend. We even named the little red vehicle Chelsea.

On top of the impromptu car purchase, we drove around town to look at prospective houses for purchase for either a second home or hopefully our future permanent home. All we need now is a position with VA in Bay Pines!

THis week has been very good, especially after the past week with bad news. Here is the summary.

Sold old appliances via CriagsList. (It really does work)
Plumbing work for new refrigerator.
New Vanity Light
Wood flooring samples evaluated
I organized another VA Town Hall meeting, with a new twist:video streaming nationwide.

On top of all this, tomorrow we celebrate Samantha's parent's 40th wedding anniversary with a surprise party at a French Bistro in Old Town Alexandria, followed by a photo shoot on the waterfront.

On the horizon: one week until our vacation to Florida!!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel: accomplished accomplished
