another little update

So we got the car, Chad went downtown to get the material he needed to fix the hole in the gas tank only to find out there's NOT a hole in the gas tank! It's in the trunk under where the spare tire is stored! So he's going to fix that, but the car will pass inspection. He's planning on going down tomorrow to get it inspected and tagged! The lady who gave us the car said they told her it would pass other than that. Obviously they weren't very bright and didn't actually get UNDER the car and look otherwise they would have seen the issue. The plus side is that we got a free car out of the deal, so who's complaining!! LOL Chad does need to call for insurance on it (seriously I can't stand talking to them, they just get on my nerves! :X ) So he's doing it!!

The only thing we have planned for tomorrow is Jackson's tball practice which starts at 5:30 and lasts 30 minutes aprox. I missed it last week because Jacob had a scrimmage and since Chad's Jackson's coach he couldn't exactly miss practice so I had to. I was so sad to miss out on his first practice, but I couldn't miss Jacob's scrimage either! I know this is only the beginning of what life with kids in sports will be like, there will be times when one or both of us will have to decide who's to go to and who's to miss. I'm hoping that as the boys get older they'll be on the same teams.

I'm so exhausted tonight, yet have that "not going to sleep" feeling right now!

Oh I called to find out about our new armour entertainment center and it's going to be delivered next Wednesday afternoon! I'm thrilled that it's going to be here next week, even if I was hoping it'd be THIS week since that is what we were originally told!'ll be here then. So next Tuesday we'll be taking everything off and out of our current one. Chad will have to take it downstairs, we can throw it out to recycling until we do our claims on it from moving here. Yeah, I know...we've been  here for almost 2 yrs and haven't done our claims yet. We did all the paperwork, but just need to get the guy to come and look at everything and he'll write what it'd cost him to fix things and we will get our money. The current entertainment center for one it's junk. It's partical board, we've had it for years...but the idiot movers (on the American side) took it completely apart. Now anyone with common sense knows to not take apart particle board furniture. It's not exactly all that strong to start off with (not like Oak!) so when you take it apart it just weakens it that much more. So not only did they take it apart, but they lost all our screws (not just for the entertainment center). We were both very ticked off. It has class doors that because hinges were missing we couldn't put on it either. So, after my parents leave will be getting that all taken care of, getting the money that the Army owes us!

Ok so I need to get off of here, my shoulder is hurting me. I'd really love to see a chiropractor, but well that's not going to happen considering that's one thing not covered and I'm sure they'd just say that it was pregnancy related although it's NOT since I've been dealing with back and shoulder pain since I was in high school.

God Bless and have a blessed day

Well good luck on two counts, getting the car fixed and making that shoulder all better.

I'm so happy you got the car and I hope you can get it fixed. I'll be praying for you that your shoulder feels better, too. Have you ever tried those Pain Patch things? They won't fix it, but they can really help with the pain until it heals. They stink (because they're Ben Gay) but they do work.

I keep forgetting to tell you that each time I pull your journal up I break out in a smile when I see the faces of your darling children.....such beauties!

Pooh Hugs,

You've been busy...getting the car fixed, good idea on the insurance..hope Chad calls about it.  Busy with tball, so much.  And then there's your shoulder...praying that pain goes away very soon.  Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week...hugs and love,

Have a great day,
