All in all it's not so bad. I am glad they are fixing the street (not that it was bad), but a simple letter from the city would have been nice, letting us know when it was we were going to be without a driveway. I asked one of the workers and he said they came around this morning and banged on doors to let people know...how considerate. He asked me "didn't you hear the bangin'?" but since I am at work by 6:15, no I did not. However, I hear it now...geez goodness they are LOUD out there!!!

The first day has gone off so far without a hitch. I have had my fair share of school pictures taken with students coming back. I will probably be one of those parents too...taking pictures of my kid with absolutely everyone. It is very sweet when the kids see you after a long break and give you super great welcome back hugs!! Although one kid did say to me "Wow Ms. Mandy, you look way prettier this year!"...I think that was a compliment...right? (I did get my hair cut which I need to share on here, it is much shorter.)
Anyhow...happy sharpened pencils, crisp notebooks, new clothes, shoes, haircuts and backpacks back to school first day!

My Yellow Car Goodbye
I had yet to get the love feeling with any of our options except for the new Dodge Avenger. The disadvantage was that new Avengers are out of our price range but I just wasn't finding anything else I liked enough, and I loved my yellow car too much to give it up for a car I barely liked. Saturday evening, on a whim, we drove past some lots and there we found it. A 2008 Dodge Avenger that was used, but VERY in my price range and absolutely immaculate.
