Quick Update

So.....I haven't blogged in awhile. I have a few updates to share.

1. My car is fine! PTL!!! The shop called us and said that they let the engine run for 3 hours (and filled up my gas tank after thankfully) and they could not find anything wrong. When they ran diagnostics it came back with a signal for a vacuum leak so we think that when Chris & his friend looked at it they inadvertantly fixed it. They took off the throttle body to see if that part was bad and put it back on but never started it we didn't know it was fixed. It's been running fine and I am so thankful to have my car back and not having to get it fixed.

2. We might be moving.......things are moving along for us to move into a duplex in December. We still have a couple more places to look at but our application was accepted for one we went to view last Saturday. It has 3 bedrooms a large living/dining area and a large basement that's unfinished so would be great for storage!! The downside is that there's only one bathroom and it's tiny but we can manage until we save up to buy a great house.

3. Things are coming along for our trip. This weekend we are going to go shopping for all the travel essentials - luggage tags, space bags to pack our bulky clothes in, plus we're stopping by the AAA office to get advice on how to best travel with money and how much to take with us. We're hoping to use VISA travel cards to pull money out of ATMs because then we can get the best exchange rate.

4. Since we didn't have to get my car fixed our laoptop decided to semi-die on us. The backlight for the screen started to go out and so you had to use it on the dimmest setting or it would go black. Apparantly the cable for it wears out when you open and close the why would they put it there? Anyways we are hoping it is a quick and easy fix.

I am updating from work right now so I better log off. SSssshh don't tell!

P.S. Thank you to all the veterans who serve our country so faithfully. In my own family I am thankful for my dad and my father-in-law who both served in Vietnam.
