Not bad, considering I didn't even make the list until Wednesday, and it was a mighty ambitious list. We have been hampered in the packing process by the fact that boxes have not yet arrived, but they'll be here tomorrow and slightly more of the packing process can get underway.
On the plus side, since I picked up the new car, I've been having the time of my life in it. The new car is a Mini Cooper. Our new one is silver with black top and trim, sunroof, black leather interior. But here's the best thing. I didn't get the more souped-up "S" version because I wanted better mileage. So, this one comes with an onboard computer that tells you what your mileage is this second. So, I had to drive the 80-miles to San Leandro and back and I turned on the computer and then watched as I sped up and slowed down. The upshot is completely expected. You get the best overall mileage at just over 60 and a steady rate of speed. Sure, the MPG went up to 80 on the few downhills, which was kind of cool. But you end up going tens of thousands of miles out of your way if you drive only downhill.
