One Car Engine Replacement: $3700.
Taking your car in to get the tires rotated 1 week later, and coming home with NEW tires, NEW brakes, and NEW rotors: $1000.
Waking up the very next day to a tree lying across your car:
Priceless, Baby. Priceless.
Ok, obviously the tree didn’t do much damage. And it’s just a limb, not the whole thing, thank goodness! I think the worst part was the fact that my brother in law is in town with his precious wife and my brand new niece, so we are letting them borrow the car, and this happened on his watch up at my mother-in-law’s house. He looked out the window in the morning and saw this…can you IMAGINE? Heart attack central. My mil called me up and told me and I just fell into fits of giggles. Because what else are you going to do, the day after you’ve spent close to $5000 on your very used car? So, so thankful it was just dings and scratches. OH MY so thankful.
We do, however, have a tree that must come down in the back of our house; the same storm that took the limb down up there split the tree behind us. It is now in an incredibly precarious position, holy moly. If it falls the rest of the way, it is in danger of either taking our house out or one of 2 of our neighbors…so yeah. YOU GUYS. It’s POURING over here. Raining and pouring.
I put together that little photo above and it calmed my heart last night. It’s so true, right? So very true. Not that I haven’t been exceptionally irritated at times, but it’ll all come together, always does. Unfortunately what I want most in the world is to go on a Target shopping spree. 🙂 You want the most what you can’t have right? Ha!
One of my favorite turning-life-into-lemons people, the Lemonade Makin’ Mama herself, is hosting a giveaway for some jewelry today, from our company! And there is a right good little coupon code over there if you are interested. And free shipping, to boot! I’ve come up with some new pieces that I don’t believe I’ve ever shared on the blog, so you’ll have to go check them out.
Well, Ryan and Jack are off to their second day of camp and Erick is taking the little one to his mom’s today; I’m going to make a delivery with mom and dad to Camden. It’s a rainy day, but I’m going to hunt down some lemonade anyway, darn it!
Have a beautiful day, no matter the weather!
