Weird, I just listened to a public service announcement on my voicemail. "Don't litter!" Odd.

Yaaaaaaaaaaay!!! Congratulations!

: that is totally exciting (besides the nausea...which is a good sign, but not fun). hopefully the nausea will pass soon!

i'm hoping my summer involves lots of camping and wakeboarding. i looked at beach sites but didnt book anything..need to do that. i'm also hoping to go to john day/fossil beds/painted hills for a long weekend.

our friends do an annual 10day trip to whiskeytown lake outside redding and i've gone twice. this summer it is in july. my cousin is getting married in LA in august though and i want to go to that. probably can't do two big trips this summer though. i'm kind of leaning towards the LA trip + visiting our parents.

we are also doing a trip to detroit lake in june. hopefully it won't rain and i need to get a wetsuit.

i'm hoping to do lots of walking and taking the boys to the park. and actually make it to the farmers market once in a while. i feel like i spend too much when i go : but at this point the grocery store is crazy expensive anyway. i'm excited about gardening...growing flowers and just a few veggies. i hope i have enough expendible income to browse the nursery once in a while. i've got a few empty beds that need some landscaping. lots of BBQing. doug actually bbq'd tonight and i realized i've missed it! (ours is not covered so is seasonally limited)

hopefully getting out of the winter funk too

He went to replace the spark plugs and said they didn't need to be replaced, that it needed new spark plug wires, a distributor cap, fuel filter, and some other things. Well spark plug wires are EXPENSIVE! Meinike also broke something and shredded a wire checking the spark plug.
It's ok after it warms up and I have to stay at a constant speed to keep it from shaking.
Ericka, I just had new spark plug wires and new serpentine belt done on my car. The belt was about $100. I got it done at the place we always get our oil changed. The plug wires, I don't remember but I could look at the bill. But my car didn't shake like that. It did make a lot of noise though because one of the motor mount bolts was crushed. That could make it shake. But what exactly is shaking? The whole car? Or the steering wheel, or the engine or transmission?

Randomly, I also just bid on a LeapPad with books on ebay and lost. booo

Yay! I use your pincushions and love them! DD loves them too. Was it the My Little Leap Pad or the regular Leap Pad? I see the regular Leap Pads all of the time at Goodwill. And you can usually find a bunch of books/games on CL. DD has a Little Touch leap pad and she likes it, but it's more for the younger crowd. And she has a Leapster, but the games are a little too advanced for her still.

Here's a public service announcement:

As necessary as it is, a spoonful of peanut butter does NOT taste good at 3:50am.

Don't think so. It was a pre-recorded message and totally mundane. It said more than don't litter, but not much. Something about keeping oregon clean. But yah, very weird.

it is the whole car and you can def. tell it's coming from under the hood....I called the big head honcho at Meineke yesterday and told him about my experience...he said he would take a look at my car on Thursday. I told him how the Meineke I went to were very rude and broke something. Hopefully he can be honest with me and tell me whats wrong.
I am looking into buying a Honda Odyssey..if I can get some financing. I don't think my Lexus is going to last much longer

Glad you like the pincushions. Moving needles between pincushions was a fave activity for both my kidlets.

I bid on a regular Leap Pad, just because it had a bunch of books with it. My mom has one at her house for the girls to play with and they love it. I do see them at Value Village all the time for about $4, but never with books. Plus, I should go there with batteries in my pocket so I can make sure they work. We have a Leapster, but yes, it is too hard for my youngest and my oldest seems to think the only fun game is PetPals...which teaches you nothing and has a song that drives me bonkers.

Good luck with the car stuff Ericka. I hate car stuff. Cars used to hate me, but my last one has been amazingly problem free, besides regular maintenance. I'm determined to drive it into the ground before getting something else, but I'm really bored of it. It has zero bells/whistles. Cassette player, no power doors or windows. Cig lighter doesn't work so I can't plug anything into it. Oh well. Wheels are wheels.

Erika there are tons of people selling their cars on CL right now. I would check there you could prob get a good car for a lot cheaper than a honda odyssey.

I don't trust chains like that for more than changing breaks/oil and such. If you need repairs, find a mechanic you can trust. And never got to AMCO. They screwed up our tranny and dh keep taking it back and taking it back and they keep telling him there was nothing wrong with it and finally when the warranty was up, wouldn't you know it, but the tranny they just rebuilt a year ago needs rebuilt again. And they WEREN'T going to cover it.

wow, a co-worker of mine is hospitalized with pneumonia! I can not believe how many young people are coming down with that. It seems really, really, really weird. WTF is going on?

I am so happy. And so nauseous

Congratulations!
