Car-less. *Sniff*

A while back, I had an unfortunate run-in with a gas pump. As in, I was trying to back up and whacked into it with my front left bumper of the car. Big dent. I also got a THIRD flat tire from all the construction debris in my neighborhood, so the spare is on the car. I also need an oil change.

SO, I am turning in my beloved Sequoia this morning, for FIVE WHOLE DAYS, while they replace the bumper, and the tire, and the oil. I will get a fixed-up car back on Friday, (HOORAY!) but, I have to schlep around in a little pinto for five days! (or whatever they give me at the rental place!) Not so fun. I live in my car. And you know what rental cars smell like. BLEAH. I guess it could be worse. I could have NO car...

Spring Break starts next week. We are going to the beach and my kids are so excited. We've never been as a family. Because we've never been close to the beach! We've always been land-locked wherever we've lived, and vacations were always to VACATION spots, like Disneyworld, etc. Can't wait!

Anyway, I have decided to deep clean the whole house, in anticipation of Spring Break. Because when we get back, it will be nice to have a clean house. It's going to take a lot of work, and I expect to be severely grumpy this week, but I can do it.

Had a good weekend, except we're all coughing with sore throats. Nice to have THAT on top of all the allergies. Thing Three and I are going to the Allergist to get all pricked up and figure out what's been kicking our butts these last few weeks. Although I can venture a guess! Hubby's black car is YELLOW with pollen! Everything around here is! They say the pollen level for NC is three times the level it was this time last year. That's what we get for a hot/early Spring! Today is supposed to be 85.

Makes me a little nervous for summer....

You poor thing! Amazing how dependent we are on our cars. Any chance they'll get it done faster?
