I HAVE SOLD THE CAAR



Yay! I am now car-free as of about an hour ago. This has been a long time coming: we started planning on selling it when we moved here, and I've been puttering at it relatively seriously for probably a year.

Yet when I finally got around to advertising it (after tremendous levels of yak shaving), it took two days to get the first response, and that person bought it at my asking price. This is pretty much what happened with my double bass, too, which I also put off selling for no good reason for months. There is a lesson in here, I think.

Anyhow, yay car-free us! It feels so great to have it over with, like the last big anchor of our Ottawa lifestyle cast off.
