I don't usually go more than a day or two between posts and it's always strange to me when I do. Especially when we're not away on vacation or something. And we weren't. Things were just kind of crazy in general around here this past week.
I can't spell
In making these little "Happy Spring" notes to go inside the Easter eggs in the Brown Bags this month, I totally misspelled "spring" when I was setting it up on the stamp. It wasn't until I printed this first one that I realized it didn't look quite right. Happy Sring!
Our car broke and we bought a new (used) one
I mentioned this the other day (and thanks for all your kind thoughts and worries), but we had a bit of a car fiasco. Last fall we decided to cut back financially in any way we could (so I wouldn't have to work anymore--so worth it) and one of the the ways we did this was selling our nice car that we were still making payments on and buying a cheap car outright.
We were so happy not to be making car payments anymore that we ignored the fact that our cheap car smelled like a chain smoker. "This is what it feels like to live within our means." That's what I chanted to myself every time I remembered that I kind of hated that car. Because I did kind of hate it. But I loved that we didn't make payments on it.
