New Subaru

Subaru (スバル) is the automobile brand name of Japanese transportation conglomerate Fuji Heavy Industries Group. The fact that I bought a vehicle made by the Fuji Heavy Industries Group makes me laugh (see here and here). But while humour is important in a vehicle, safety remains more important (Subaru gets major safety kudos in CBC article today). Thus we have the Subaru Forester. Until I get a couple of our own pictures, I’ll have to direct you here to see what it looks like. So far I’m very pleased with this purchase.

So, while we didn’t find out what sex the baby is from our ultrasound last week, we did pick up a new car.

Meanwhile, the house is slowly transforming – the den becoming the baby’s room. This is involves removing all the furniture from the den and figuring out where to put it: no small task. But we now have all the furniture out. We’ve also scheduled a few contractors to help with small projects and the flooring guys are coming around the middle of December. By Christmastime we should have nice new floors, a nicely painted and tidy baby’s room, and even some rebuilt cabinets in the kitchen.

Certainly there is no lack of work.

One thought on “New Subaru

  1. Ah, the nesting phase has begun! Good times. We couldn’t find out the sex either at our ultrasound — though actually I was happier not to know (even though I “knew” I was having a girl).

    My parents have a Forester, and love it. We ended up buying a Matrix this year — hooray for no minivans!

    Take care, you three.
