Happy Friday to everyone! What a week it’s been here for me… and I’m sure for a lot of others out there, since most schools that I know started back up (not only colleges, but high schools all over the country too).
1. S and I bought a new car last Friday. I was hesitant to say anything, because we just bought the house, but I’ve been such a nervous wreck driving my old car (and had a panic attack at 70 mph on the highway last week while driving said car) that S had had enough, and off to the dealorship we went. I got a great value for my Mazda, and drove off with a 2010 Honda Civic Hybrid (clearance priced too – YES!). Here she is, sitting in the parking lot at work:
I’m going to get some white paint and sealant to make sure they’re good for the outdoors. Not to mention it only cost $2.95 to ship two of them (plus a cool tree collage and a flower collage to try for our living room).
4. Our appliances are still on backorder. They’re now saying September 10 for delivery. It’s a good thing we hadn’t put our appliances on Craigslist yet. But it’s ok – good things come to those who wait!
5. School officially starts on Monday!!! I can actually log into my class today, so I’m going to check out the syllabus and see what assignments there are and such. I also got my school email set up and my tuition reimbursement from work. This is so exciting, and a bit nerve-wracking because it’s a completely new format of education for me. Wish me luck!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!! S and I are taking our bikes out on our first real trail ride tomorrow morning. I hope to get some pictures from that!
