The Damage

July 10th, 2014 at 01:20 pm

The car repair came to $1038. I can't believe how much better the ride is, and how unaware I was of how bad it was getting.

I charged it to my Chase Freedom card just at the right time -- it will not appear on this month's statement, but next. That's good because I may be able to pay for it out of my cash flow rather than having to dip into savings.

I did a little pre-packing last night, and some texting with my kids. I decided that sleeping in one of the kids' rooms was not going to work for me -- two rowdy boys in one, a night-owl toddler in the other. I'm sleep-challenged enough already! I tried to get another room, but the hotel is full. (Though I do have an alert in place, if a room opens up.) But my SIL graciously encouraged me to stay at their house. I'll have a couch one night, and a bed after the wedding is over. I think I'll take them a nice bottle of wine!

She also told me to see about getting life-jackets for the kids, since we may be going out on their boat. My guess is that one grandson, at least, will be terrified, but we'll give it a go!

I forgot to mention that I found a penny the other day, and it was a special one! It was a 1903 Indian head penny. It was in pretty good condition, too. I gave it to my grandson for his treasure box. I believe the value is something around a dollar or two, but, who knows, it may grow in value over his lifetime!

    That's cool about the penny. I don't think we see many of them anymore other than in magazines or shops.

    Sounds like the car repair was money well spent!

    Great that you found a 1903 Indian head penny! I'm sure the value of if will surely increase, I'm sure your grandson is very high, it's totally a true treasure!
