Well, let's just say I stink at negotiating. Or maybe it was just that the price was soooooooo right. We're going ahead w/the XC90 purchase this week. No dvd system, no extended warranty, just the car thankyouverymuch.
Today is the 42nd anniversary of the day my parents said "I do" in a small ceremony at Mount Olivet Lutheran Church in Minneapolis, in the middle of a frigid winter storm. They celebrated at the now-closed Waikiki Room downtown.
And today is the day John accepted a promotion to Associate Dean at JMU. It's an exciting time, indeed. This trip to Belgium is sort of a last hurrah, and will take place between the end of the girls' school year and the beginning of his new 12-month responsibilities. All the more reason to savor the time together. No more 4-month summer vacation!
