Being without a car stinks!

Well, my car has finally died. I can't really complain because it does have almost 270,000 miles, but I really wanted it to last a little longer. Now I get to start hunting for a car that's not too much. I'm waiting to hear back from Larry to see what he is going to do with two of his cars. At one point, he said he would give one to me if I would fly out to get it. Of course, I'm willing to do that, but I don't know if he's changed his mind or not. I really don't want to have car payments, but may not have a choice.

July Already!!!

It's so hard to believe that half the year is over already! That sure went by fast.

Beth has been working a lot lately, so I've been watching Ethan a lot more. He's fun to have around, but sure puts a damper on my scrapping and housework. Oh well, it'll all be waiting for me. It's so much more important to continue bonding with Ethan.

I have to start working on an alphabet book that I want to make for Ethan's first birthday. I'd better get started soon since his birthday is in October. After I complete that, I think I'll start my Christmas cards so I don't run out of time like I have the last two years.

I'm having a cook out at my house tomorrow for the 4th. Nothing special, just hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans and au gratin potatoes. I want to get some pictures of Ethan's face tomorrow night when the neighbors shoot off their fireworks. They get the big ones like the city shoots off.
