Why am I excited?

Today I am getting my first mini-van! It is 2001 Honda Odyssey with 119,000 miles. It has been well cared for by a good friend of mine. Most importantly it has a third row I can access without having to climb over seats or pulling my back out. Another great feature is a jazzy automatic door that slides open with the push of a button.
Why am I excited about this? My husband and I have been sharing a car for two and a half years. In general I am happy to have saved so much money over these past few years sharing a car. With the arrival of more children I feel much better having the added freedom a second car will bring.
On Thursday evening I told my SW of my plan to resist my urge to pester her for updates and only contact her every other week. She said that our file had moved onto the main agency representative who has 30 days to review it and then send it onto someone in Tallahassee who has another 30 days. She originally gave us a 4-6 week waiting estimate. she is counting on things moving along faster. I am going to email her on Thursday. I'll post any updates.

We're looking to get a new vehicle in the next month or so and it IS exciting!
As we get older, the present (even the ones we get ourselves) get bigger.
