We were able to get our new car on Wednesday. It’s a 2008 Hyundai Sonata. I couldn’t have been happier with my old Sonata and they had such a great deal on the new 2008’s that it was hardly more expensive than a good used car so we took the plunge. I never thought I would buy a brand new car but we are happy with our decision. With their amazing warranty it’s nice to know we don’t have to fret about a car for the next few years!
After a large amount of thought, prayer and talking Jeremy and I have decided that I should stop working. It was a very hard choice, and giving up flight benefits is painful (I never did make it to Europe). Ultimately we had to decide to do what is best for us and our little family. I wasn’t looking forward to starting to work again and being away from JD during that time, but now that the decision is made it is down right scary. That 4 hours a day would have been mom-free time, and I’m sure many stay at home mom’s out there understand how good that can be. I am excited that I don’t have to worry about who will watch JD when I’m working if Jeremy can’t, and about having holidays off again. It hopefully won’t be too big of a shock since I’ve been out of work since last fall.
Life has tossed us a lot of curve balls so far in 2008, some we’ve been public about… others that we haven’t… but I must say it’s a year of great blessings so far. We have a beautiful healthy baby boy, and I can’t even tell you how that alone makes everything else seem less important. Thank you all for standing by us during the hard year we had in 2007, we love you all!
