KNK Swap and Playing Catch Up

There's a new KNK Swap going on over at Paperthreads! The theme is anything for the fronts of cards. How useful is that?!! I can't wait to see you over there. It's a fun way to practice making a file and you get a lot of cool files in return!

I'm still trying to get all caught up on everything. We actually got both of our kids to complete 6 day's of homework in just 2 days while going to Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts too! Phew!!! That alone has kept us hopping.

Unfortunately, it's going to be a bit longer before I feel like we're all good to go and I am really dreading tomorrow. We have to start shopping for a new vehicle for my husband. We had hoped to keep his for many more years. It was my wedding present from him, afterall. However, one thing after another has been breaking on it and three different mechanics can't even agree on what is wrong with it. Urgh!!!

Don't get me wrong here. I'm not attached to the vehicle. I just don't like the idea of having a car payment again and I really hate shopping for a new car too! I hate how much time it sucks out of your life and I can't stand the silly tactics the salespeople use like holding your car keys hostage in another room so you can't leave. What's up with that anyway?!!! So, If I happen to disappear again, you can find me at the car dealership. I'll be the one banging on the door to get out!

Yo - you need to talk to me about buying a car..... I NEVER haggle with dealerships ! I told my hubby how I did it and he looked at me like I was crazy - then when I got our Jeep and I got it for $7000 less than he was quoted - he has never laughted over it again!!!!

I let a dealership make me cry one time and SWORE it would never happen again!!!
