Long Week

Ugh! I'm tired. This week has been long and tiring. It's over now though. At least the working for someone else part is. :)

Now, I'll be helping my princesses complete their science fair projects over the course of the weekend. They're due on Monday, I believe and not all the data has been collected and the write-ups have not yet been completed. After that, there are the pics to develop and arrange and the display board to put together.

Luckily, I'm going to help with the science portion of the projects and I'll get the Queen to help them with the display board portion on the projects.

Scientific method for all! :D

On Starters

So... On my way to my friend's house last night, I stopped at a 7-11 to grab a couple of snacks. When I returned to the car, the starter died. I know it was the starter as we checked the fuses and relays. So I got permission to leave it there overnight and made plans to repair it the following morning and got a ride home from one of my friends.

This morning, I stopped by Auto-Zone and purchased a new starter on the way to the 7-11 to perform surgery on the car.

After a successful, 2-hour surgery, the patient fired up like a champ. I'm proud of my ability to be handy. :) I probably saved us a few hundred bucks on towing and mechanic labor. I'll tell you this one thing. It is NOT pleasant working on a car in front of a convenience store in the COLD.

At least it's all done now. Cars are such money pits. :)

Long Time...

... no see. It's been quite a while since I've posted anything. I suppose I have grown complacent. That's too bad. I'll try to remedy that this year. I also need to apologize for the dearth of posts the last few months.

FYI: I got yet another sinus infection and I'm on meds for it. Becca has strep (yes, she's on meds too) and MJ is doing his best to drive us all insane. It is admittedly a short trip, but he's trying to get us there quickly.

Anyway, here's to wishing you all a Happy New Year! I hope it goes well for you all.
