Well, we got the estimates…
Laura’s car came to a grand total of $3200.00 and 8-10 days of a rental car.
Mine came to $520.00 and two days without a car.
She’s coming this Friday night to help me ward off the Boogie Man again. I guarantee you she will not be parking anywhere near me…
On a brighter note:
– All the kids are over the stomach bug. No more poop or puke to be scrubbed out of the carpet. YAY. That deserves a toast!
– The anorexia is really going well! I’m down ten or so pounds. I love being an anorexic. Go, me!
– The Mister will be gone again (which is not so happy news in itself… I miss him when he’s gone, plus I really, really, really, really, really hate being alone… I’m the world’s biggest wuss…,) but it means another GNI. (That would be Girls’ Night In.)
– Spring is in the air.
On a not so brighter note:
Mema has really gone down hill in the past two or three weeks… She can do nothing for herself… Including potty or bathe. Or eat. Because she tries to eat everything with a spoon. They caught her trying to eat potato chips out of the bag with a spoon last week. They also found her sitting in the hallway with her legs sprawled out in front of her with nothing on but a pajama shirt and one leg in the arm of one of my uncle’s sweaters… I don’t think they’ll be able to keep her at home much longer. And that’s seriously sad. My uncle can’t do it all, and as he so eloquently put it, “Nobody should have to see their mama’s cookie.”
That’s about all I have to report today. I’ll be back later. After I fight Hurricane Henry down for a nap, play princess with the Princess and bounce my beautiful bouncing baby boy on my knee for a few minutes… Then it’ll be time for a nice tall glass of the vodka and diet tonic water.
