"Honey? Remember I told you I felt the driver's side was lower than the passenger's?"
When one car gets fixed, another breaks down. Hubby is lucky to get his truck back home. I can't remember the part he had to replace, but he (and my son) got it completely fixed by nightfall. Yay!
While they fixed the truck, I spent a few hours cutting up nylon netting for dish scrubbies. The kids are finding things to keep themselves busy too, including a game they played at Thanksgiving (with their cousins). Get this. It's a game with styrofoam cups. They simply swat it back at forth, while everyone sits on the floor. That makes Christmas shopping easy - a bag of cups. Ha ha ha ha! I have to give them credit. It did not involve electronics. Ha ha!
Although Hubby is taking today off to watch the Ohio State/Michigan game, he's working on other home projects. One that involves my utility room and lack of storage for my appliances. You know.....sauce maker, dehydrator, canning jars, canning pot, etc. Plus, I am moving some of my craft supplies in there to re-organize my bedroom closet (which is our "safe room" for tornado weather). And the "utility" room is already the "storage" room for the coats, sweeper, mop, brooms, rags, pet food, goat supplies, extra chicken and goat feed.....get my drift? It's the last room, the only room, to store these items in. It's just got to get figured out, and soon.
