An Update

There has been a lot going on, since our little excursion to 1820. And I am sorry that I haven't had the time to write. We finally got the $800 back, and got all our finances squared away. Man, when they say things happen in 3's, they REALLY aren't kidding! After 2 weeks, we finally got the money back, then, come to find out, (1) Nat has to take 2 UNpaid days off a month (no, he doesn't work for the state). We are thankful that Nat still has a job though, so we don't have a problem with the furlough, if it means saving some jobs. (2) Nat's car has a motor mount crack or a head gasket that needs replacing (we are hoping for the latter), and (3) our fridge quit working (we really have bad luck w/fridges), we go through fridges like a child with candy it seems. On a positive note, everyone is in good health, and school is going good. Well, I wish I had time to post more, but life as a mom, teacher, playmate, friend, etc is calling me back into reality. 8:30 am Update: Good news, we now have a new $50 fridge... Craig's List is my new Best Friend. I just hope that this lasts longer than the old free one.
