Our First Baby

I'll bet you didn't know we actually purchased a "baby" in 1999. 10 years later...she's still with us.

Our beautiful and scary fast M3.


Matt's (and I) have taken meticulous care of our 1st. She's had just about everything replaced once, usually with the racing upgrade.


Of course, I'm taking pictures so I can sell it on-line. Even for me, it's difficult. Driving this car, is an experience everyone should have at least once. And, we can drive it everyday. (Although we don't, to save the miles)

For Matt, I think it's painful. He's not involved in the selling process, but reluctantly gave me the ok. I don't to feel too sorry for him, with a turbo boosted Volvo as his daily driver.

I'm trying to sell it on cars.com, which links to our local paper as well. The ad should go up on Wednesday and we'll see how it goes. It's a very specific market, but these cars are very desirable when in good/excellent condition.

Devin continues to improve, but it's been slow progress. Her sleep is still interrupted by congestion, draining and coughing. I'm a bit concerned about her catching a secondary infection, while she's still recovering...which apparently is the reason people are dying from H1N1. She hasn't had a fever since Saturday, so she will go to preschool tomorrow.

Matt and I had the idea for me to approach the President of the company who directly competes with the company that just laid me off. I left a message for her and guess what? She called me back within the hour and wants to take me to lunch!!! We briefly discussed what I did for the "other" company and she was excited to hear all about it. It's a much, much smaller company...they most likely could not replace my pay. BUT, any income is better than zero. I meet with her tomorrow.

If I could get a few small, "selling things from home" jobs and sell the car...we'll be alright.

Beautiful car! I bet you will have a buyer soon. Congratulations on the lunch! How exciting. what is it you do? It sounds interesting! I am sure Devin will be fine. That is one thing I don't like about this time of year, all the nasty stuff going around!

Take Care~
