Is it Friday Already?

Wow, life zooms by when you don't have much to do.

Let's see, what's going on around here. Good news (for us, anyway)! After this month's payment my car will be paid off! We've been making extra payments and have managed to pay it off early. That's so exciting! Not to mention that will help a lot with our single income family.

And speaking of my car, it's still in the body shop. Remember my little teeny accident, where I rear-ended someone going like 5 miles an hour? Well the whole bumper needs to be replaced due to a nickel-sized hole in it. $800. So I take it in and they take the bumper off and find MORE damage--the whackajig is bent, the thingiepoo is dented, etc. Luckily we more than met our insurance deductible with the bumper so I'm like Bring it On Baby--Fix it All! Hopefully we'll get the car back soon. Kevin has been walking to work.

Scout has a new sleeping spot. She's now made a nest on the guest bed on a pillow. The guest bed is currently serving as a holding zone for extra blankets and pillows, and Scout made herself right at home. Of course.

You know, I'm amazed by the number of door-to-door solicitors we get here. I would say someone comes to the door at least once or twice a week. Twice this week. They're always selling something or getting you to donate something or handing out fliers that say "WARNING! The time of GOD is near!" I really figured door-to-door soliciting was a thing of the past, but that was because I worked all day and missed them. Don't other people work? I guess I assume that most homes are empty during the day due to people working, but apparently that's not the case because the door knockers keep a' comin'. I need to make better use of the peephole.

You could, of course, also make use of a "No Soliciting" sign. :)

But . . . I *like* walking to work!

It'd be nice to have car #2 back, though.
