I have no new pictures to show. Just living life, day by day as life demands. So many things happen, having 3 girls, 4 cars and a HOME that constantly needs sprucing. This month so far has been a stressful one in all those areas. One daughter's car has had to have 2 new computer systems put in it, all within 2 1/2 weeks of each other. First one was just a used get it as cheap as we could, but make sure it works kind of thing. Only to have it die while she was in a car wash on her way back to college one night. The second one took 2 weeks to get, but it comes with a warranty....for 12 mths or 12,000 miles! She has no current plans on washing her car ever again, these things aren't cheap even when used!
Oldest daughter 2 days later had her car broken into....window broken, police called and IPOD and GPS stolen, hard lessons learned there, as we advised her to take those items in her apartment at night. Sometimes we still know what we are talking about don't we parents!! Ended up there were 4 teenagers arrested not too far from where she lives, the next day. Seems they have been doing this in her area for the past 3 mths. The house they were arrested at had 100's of gps', ipods, laptops and stuff. Coincedence...maybe, but the policeman said "unofficially" he thinks it is probably that group that robbed her. She just happens to still have the original boxes these items came in, so she has serial numbers for proof of what is hers. Keeping our fingers crossed!
Last weekend I went to get gas in my new car and came home with a 3 1/2 inch screw/bolt in one of my "brand new" tires. Needless, to say my husband wasn't happy. Would you be able to see that laying in the road?? He got over it until we found out it could not be repaired and had to order a whole brand new tire. Why are tires sooo expensive?
This weekend we spent getting the last of the outside stuff taken care of. We got all of the wet and slippery leaves raked and put into the street. We have had our share of rain and in that have discovered a leaking window. How do these things happen from season to season? It's a mystery to me! Late July we "custom ordered" a storm door for our main entrance to our HOME. Custom ordered being the key words! It took 6 weeks to arrive and was "professionally installed" as recommended by the wonderful people at Lowe's. Good thing we did that, because now we have to go and re-custom order another door. Seems somehow the gentleman mismeasured or something and there is a huge gap under my door that requires me to put one of those draft dodgers under it. That was the whole reason we purchased the door, was to not have to use those things or plastic around the door during the winter months. But it will be fixed....I just hope it doesn't take another 6 weeks, the snow will be flying for sure!
Well, that is about the extent of my life this month. Along with dodging the flu bug. My youngest daughter has had a touch of it and our school district was closed Wed. thru Fri. last week. My husband has had it, but with no fever, just all the other stuff. Me I am hanging on to my health for now, typically not one to get sick. Hope it stays that way!
I hope this post wasn't too boring and finds all of you in good health and safe surroundings!
