You know those times in your life when nothing and everything seems to be happening at the very same time? That is the reason for my almost 2 month hiatus from this blog. Troy has had a new job, which has been great. Right now he is in WI taking some schooling so he can get paid more and have more options for working. This is a very hard but good thing, because he is driving…let me explain. In the past month my husband has been in 3 car wrecks. Yes, 3. The first one, our beloved suburban got totaled! Thankfully my love did not have a scratch on him!! (Those things are TANKS) So, just 24 hours later, with a check in hand from our insurance we start browsing around for a new vehicle. T wanted a new suburban, but gasp! choke! we don’t make that much money! I have wanted a minivan for almost 3 years, but we haven’t been able up til now…Yes we bit the bullet and decided to go “balls to the wall” for a new minivan. 2007, loaded to the hilt, leather, sirius, DVD, stow’n’go, and it is my fave color silver! I love it.
For new years eve we had made plans to go across the street to our good friends house and party there. It was perfect. The kiddos were farmed out to my MIL (she goes to bed at 9 am, even on new years) and all we had to do was stumble home after the party. Yummy food was had, jello shot contests between Troy and I (I won!) and funny videos made of people getting shot in the ass with a bb gun. Fantastic, right? Well, somehow that night our little Saturn drove itself out onto the icy roads and ran over a stop sign , into a ditch and stopped only when running into a large fence post. Those damn Saturns are stubborn, let me tell ya. $900 later, my love* is still trying to get it back to rights.
Fast forward to 5 days ago. Troy was out and about getting parts for the car and he gets rear ended. Hard. In the precious brand new van. GRRRRRR. thankfully it was 100% the other guys fault and he has been very honorable about it. But, the van is in the repair shop as we speak and I have no transportation and my love is out of town for the next 5 days. He is driving a rental vehicle. So, I am having to depend on my MIL for help in the transporting dept., who is busy helping her daughter with their brand new baby girl. FUN.
Okedoke, enough of the rant.
There is my update for all 5 of you.
*Yes, I still love him even though he is a dumbass.
