to all the mmf!
kk: i like your new senior title, too. i almost typed t*tt*e (insert i's for the stars)
our boys are crazy on afternoon errands, too. either crazy or falling asleep in the car, neither of which bodes well for getting things done.
els: was talking to friends of ours last night and they mentioned they used to live in phoenix, so i asked them if they still knew anyone down there who might be able to help you with the car. they are thinking of some maybes...
renae: bad friend! *slaps your hand* totally kidding! as i mentioned before, everyone in portland comes out of hibernation in the summer so there are like 7 things to do each day and we have to choose and i haven't even called back my friend who left me two voicemails last week because we have been sooooooooo busy just doing regular stuff and i feel like a horrible friend.
i went down to the car dealer which i usually don't go to because we (really just me, actually) had a bad experience there when we almost leased a car for bill from them 10 years ago. creepy sales guy, weird "no commission" sales gimmick (ummm, they probably call them "bonuses" instead of something like that), anyway, bill bought the new car from them and it was a semi pleasant experience except for they forgot one of the things he wanted on the car and that they quoted him. it's more confusing to write about than what actually happened. but they have a service department that apparently has only an oil changer department and you are supposed to be able to get in and out in about 45 minutes. ummm, not today. call for appointment when you have children. totally ticked off about that because my car is about 8k overdue for an oil change.
