Tim and I decided to be smart and sell his car to buy a cheaper one (he only uses a car to go back and forth to work, so this made sense to us). So we bought a 1998 Mercedes (yeah, we sold a Chrysler to buy a Mercedes to save money). We got a good deal on the car, paid cash, and drove it home. Then realized it needed four new tires. Tim drove it for a couple of days and then decided to take it to a mechanic....it needed new bearings, water pump, brake pads, a tune up.....our "good deal" seems to be going down the drain at this point. Then we got the bill and it didn't seem so bad. Drove it for a couple of more days and took it back to the mechanic. Now it needs two new coils (whatever that is). Maybe he can drive it for a couple of more days.....
We raked the yard (we have 5 massive oak trees in our back yard) on Saturday, we hadn't raked it since all of the leaves fell in the fall. The kids helped us (Molli refused to wear shorts, so she raked while wearing a dress and a hairbow). We had huge piles of leaves. We were planning on bagging all of the leaves on Sunday because it was so late on Saturday when we finished. Apparently it was really windy on Saturday night, all of the leaves blew all over the yard.
We were actually on time to church Sunday morning (I'm pretty sure that is the first time that has happened, ever). Morgan sang in the children's choir (which is why we were on time). Madison decided to give the preacher her comments during the sermon.....
I am about to print out my hundreds of coupons to go grocery shopping, let's hope the printer doesn't run out of ink....
