We had to get our car worked a couple of time over the last few weeks. The heater wasn't working correctly and its starting to get cold. The place we normally take our vehicles doesn't work on that particular problem so we had to take it somewhere else. We asked around and found a place that was highly recommend. I shouldn't even fuss because they fixed it and gave us a good deal, but...
Both times they looked/worked on it they got grease all over my seats and other places. Now I know that probably sounds petty, but I just had to pay these people hundreds of dollars. Now I have grease on my seats which will transfer to our clothes if I cannot get it all off.
I guess I am just spoiled. Our normal mechanics have never done that and even put a disposable mat down so they don't track grease on the floorboards of the car.

Well, anyways, we have heat now. Bring on the snow!

Picture day

Today is picture day at Hannah's school. As per tradition, last night we searched through clothes until we found the perfect outfit and discussed how she wanted her hair done. This morning after she was all dressed she went to my bathroom to straighten her hair (with her pink leopard print flat iron) and I went to take the dogs out. When I came back in it struck me how much she has grown up. Here is my beautiful baby girl...now 9 years old, straightening her hair by herself.
She is such a fun-loving, goofy, intelligent, caring, artistic child. I call her the 3rd parent because she is there (sometimes faster than me) when someone gets hurt, when someone needs help, and even when someone needs reminding that what they are doing isn't correct (even Josh and I). At other times she is so goofy it almost drives me crazy.
I love her so much and I am so proud of the young lady she has already become.
