Lookit! Lookit!

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 ...

First, were you really up at 2:15 AM this morning? If so.......get some sleep. Yikes....Oh, maybe you were working.

I love the mug! It turned out so cute. You heard anything on those "can't stay out of trouble's way" bovine of yours?

Yeah for Hunny, Oatmeal Head and Hunny's Buddy!! I'm so glad your ride is on the move again.

Yay for the hunny (and the friend)!! SOOO wonderful that he's handy! He's a keeper!

I love the mug - very professional and all. Those cows are really going places.

Sorry about the van. Our car and it are in the same boat. And it's sinking fast.

Yay about the van! So what did it end up costing you?
Love the mug!

hehe I feel like I'm in on a really cool secret. The mug is awesome!! Lucky Chelf!
I use my mug every day-- it's a deep, comforting size and it reminds me of a couple of friends that stopped by this summer.
Happy the van is working!

DH and I are waiting with bated breath... Oh, the mug looks so cool. Can't wait to hold it!

I am so very happy that the van is not dead, and that your Hunny and O.H. can help keep it running well.

If you do ever decide to get another van, I know the perfect sales guy...

That's a very nice-looking mug! That means that even when Fred and Bessie are kidnapped, part of them will still be with you.

mug looks awesome...but I'm even more fired-up to hear about what a fantastic job Hunny and Oatmeal Head did on the van!!!!

and seriously, if they feel like figuring out how to replace a catalytic converter, I make a mean lasagna and nearly-famous apple pie. ;)
