Really Monday

We are targeted. Jack's scooter was also lifted.
Joel and I spent Saturday cleaning the garage.
Didn't think it was necessary to lock up goods in the garage,
but looks like I'll start doing just that.

Trying to refinance... housing prices are dropping and looks like we won't be able to save as much as we had hoped. (And I SO wanted to pick up a new car for Wil.)

So.... Saturday, Wil sprouts a wild hair and shaves off his goatee. Um.... not so happy about this, but it is his face and he's been sporting the facial since our engagement in 1993.
I was quite fond of the 'goat'.... made him look a little dangerous. Now, he looks younger than me. While he was taking the blade to his mug, I had tissue time with Katey. My oh-so-insightful 3 year old plainly stated to me, "It's just hair, Mom. It will grow back." Kids say the darnedest things.

Did you catch up there in the first paragraph that we CLEANED the garage? Yep. Our car has it's home back. Just a bit of strain, a mind of determination and sweat~lots and lots of sweat. I can now pretend to NOT be home.

I would love to pretend to not be home, but our garage is in a sad state right now. Nine bikes, a bike trailer, two scooters, yard stuff, my sister's furniture, plus a ton of other stuff we OBVIOUSLY need so much, I just can't see why we can't manage to get the car in!

so sorry to hear of all you problems with things being stolen.
I am opposite I do not like it when my husband grows his goatee. Hate it! Hate facial hair all together but he loves it and thinks it makes him look tough.
