There’s nooo day like an off-work Friday.

I am off of work today. (WooHoo!) In fact, I am off of work until January 2nd. That makes me oh so very happy. The kids are off of school until then also. We’re finally off at the same time. (And this is going to make me feel very sad come January 2nd, I think, when I realize how much I enjoy hanging out with my kids and having free time.)

My poor husband, however, is not off until January 2nd.


My van – oh lord, that van – is back at the dealership today. It’s making a thwump thwump sound, and it’s more than likely got something to do with the tires. We had them balanced and rotated, but that didn’t help. So the darn thing is back in the shop.

You know… I know that I shouldn’t make sweeping generalizations about automotive companies based on one single vehicle, but I’m not thinking I’ll buy another Chevrolet (or GM). Who knows, maybe I will, sometime further down the line. But this particular van is a dud (I had piece of sh*t written, but felt dud was nicer. Then I thought about and still felt like I should tell you I think it’s a pieces of sh*t. What can I say, I’m not feeling very polite regarding this van.) I want to take it back to the dealership and tell them to shove it in a very unmentionable place. That’s how much love I’m feeling for it right now.


Enjoy your Friday. I hope you have off of work today too. I also hope that if you go out into the fray today, you manage to enjoy yourself. But for God’s sake, stay away from Walmart. It’s too crazy out there, people, and I fear for your safety.
