lately.....

Today we spent the day fixing my van. She's been running badly for a while...shuddering up hills, shifting hard, and making some funky noises. Turns out she had a bad distributor and needed a tune-up. We changed the distributor, cap, spark plugs/wires and fixed her timing. She is running like brand new! :) I'm very happy because we thought she was dead a couple of weeks ago. Travis was threatening to buy a new vehicle and I was mad! Now, I'm a happy girl, and so is Baby. :)

Last night I braved 36 degree night air to watch my baby girl perform at the football game. I can't post the routine, but here are a couple of pictures of the team. The dancers are all very nice...a couple of them need a little attitude adjustment, but they're teenagers! I've met some of the parents and so far, it seems like a really good group. One family even lives in our neighborhood and goes to the same church as we do! :) woot.














And that has been my life the last couple of days. Oh, and I've even gotten some sewing done. I'll post quilts soon! :)

Looks like fun! Glad the girls on the dance team are a nice group for the most part and that your 'baby' is running well again, sounds like life is good! :)

I'm so glad that Baby is OK. I don't understand your relationship, but I support your choice....

Cracking up over Vivienne's comment. ME TOO, Vivienne! But I love that you love Baby, and it makes me love you all the more.

No one puts Baby in the corner of the used car lot.
