Change of Plans
So today turned out quite a bit differently than I was expecting it to be! I was going to do the detox but we ended up having to drop Marc's car off to a salvage yard for a "new to us" transmission. This tranny has 72,000 miles on it but was 895 dollars with tax instead of 3,300 dollars for a new rebuild. I have to admit, we REALLY don't have the money for the tranny, plus my mothers plane ticket, and my books for school but we're trying to make it work. Thank God Marc has been working a couple of hours a day now which has been helping out tremendously. He hurt his leg yesterday at work though, I'm just glad he didn't break it. The sad thing is, one of the first things I thought about after he showed me his bruised up leg that at least he had his accident at work where there is workman's comp. It's really starting to bother me that we don't have health insurance but with our goals in mind the cost is astronomical and we have to wait until one of us gets a job with a health plan.
Enough with that crap talk. I wanted to write about this skirt I made into a satchel for school but I'm not quite finished with it so I'm going to leave that for tomorrow! Also, I'm trying new recipes this week from a spinoff recipe blog from SlimKatie. I recently mentioned her in a post for doing an amazing job losing over 100 pounds in 16 months. These recipes are incredibly family friendly and exactly the kind of foods that my little family loves. I'll try to make sure to keep up and post pictures and reviews of what we thought. Check out her site and be INSPIRED!
Just realized I've been all words and no pictures! Here's something to entertain your visual needs!
By the way, I think my kid is going to look like this last picture, Marc's ears resembled this poor wee ones when he was younger, I think I would get them pinned. Is that bad of me to say? Marc said he wished he would have gotten his done. Plus Marc and I both had blonde hair as tots. His was platinum!
Would you ever consider a surgery for your child that was more cosmetic than for general health purposes? E.I. Fixing a cleft lip, ears pinned, or anything to that effect?
My first day of school is THURSDAY AHHH!
