Communication is Key

Someone or something you can’t communicate with through writing (a baby, a pet, an object) can understand every single word you write today, for one day only. What do you tell them?
Literate for a Day

My Kindle Fire:

I love you. Really and truly. You save my sanity when I have to wait long spans of time. You have an seemingly unlimited storage space for all those books that I can’t get enough of. And you don’t ever judge me for what I read. You don’t ask any questions. You just turn on, and let me do my thing.

My truck:

You gave me a light this morning. “Service Engine Soon” or whatever it said. Last time, it was because my gas cap was weird. Another was because some dust ended up on one of your sensors. A few times, you decided to wet yourself with transmission fluid. I am hoping that your light is something that just went “Oh, well, that’s weird” and something we don’t have to worry about.

Hmm, what happened this week? Spring Break and Puke. FUN!


Went to Josh’s dad’s property to drop off The Blue Monster Open-mouthed smile


I also had Girl Scouts. The girls colored ways to keep themselves healthy. The adorable little on in the yellow, black, and white dress was a guest appearance. She’s four, and just adorable!!


Sick Punkin. She READ while she was sick. ADORE her!!


I got a Grid App. I took advantage of it.

Storm blowing in

We had rain. Unexpectedly thundered. Open-mouthed smile

082/366 [2012] - Highly Amused

When I came in, the wind pulled the door shut behind me, and scared me. Ethan found it HILARIOUS!!

Last Day of Spring Break (during the week) and the kids were lazy lumps!

A strange animal attraction #marchphotoaday

I don’t want to know what goes on between them when the doors are closed and lights are off Winking smile


Josh looked at a car today.
2011 Chevrolet Malibu.
7k miles.
Previous owner? GM. Show car.

I go look at it tomorrow.


E was not happy to hear a truck was no longer an option but nearly $4 gas makes it a pipe dream.

Happy With What I Have


I randomly do searches for insurance costs. I know I’m getting the best deal at State Farm, but sometimes, I look and see what places like Geico, Progressive, Wholesaleinsurance.net, etc. have. We currently pay around the same cost for our insurance as we do our cellphones. That’s with life, renters, 2 cars, a form of AAA and hospital coverage (if injured and need hospitalization, insurance will pay $100 a day). That’s not a bad deal, IMO. Others might want cheaper, but that’s for ABOVE the minimum requirement and $500 deductible-full-coverage on the truck (car’s so not worth it, Open-mouthed smile)

So, all in all, I need to stop looking and be happy with what I have.

In other news: Josh’s transfer was approved by the Topeka station. His PM in Lawrence just got back from Vacation Wednesday, I think, so might not be until next week when he knows a for sure date. BIG news: one transfer person is from INDY!! INDY!! Some of my home has traveled to Kansas!!
