Lookit! The mug came! It's being mailed to Chelf on Tuesday (when I'm awake again). I likes it! I like the rim color option, too. Whadda ya think?
The Van Update: The Hunny and Oatmeal Head helped a friend of the Hunny's to replace the fuel pump and filter Saturday morning while I was at my writer's group (I squishy heart my writer's group). When I got home, I called the Hunny, since the van was missing and the friend's car was gone (our friend totally ROCKS - I squishy heart him too - planning a steak dinner in his honor soon). Guess what? Hunny was out joy riding, enjoying the new get-up-and-go. They had that baby fixed and running in two hours. Even with to dropping and siphoning the gas tank to get to the fuel pump. My guys are the best. Even though the whole house did smell like gas all day.
I thank you all for your wonderful advice when it came to our transportation. Had we gone for the used vehicle option, we'd have had to go minivan. Between the three kids (2 of 'em teens), the two mid-sized dogs, all our camping gear, and road trips including grandma, nothing smaller would work.
When we looked at what we could get for our van (I was told that it was in good shape for a 12 year old vehicle, but only worth 500 bucks), versus what something used would cost, it was ridiculous. Then the Hunny stepped in and saved the day. Hoorah! Oh! And he detailed it for me while I slept. He's the sweetest thing ever.
Back to work. And smocking. Heh. I'll show you all later what I'm working on. Maybe. Maybe I'll let another blogger show you. I've yet to decide. Have a peaceful Sunday, everyone!
Until I write again ...
