After my exhilarating post yesterday...and all this week for that matter....thought I would actually try and write a real post for today.
We dropped G-man's car off at the mechanic this morning. After discussing it at length, we decided this was not a DIY job. I appreciate that he was willing to do it, but it would have required renting tools, reading up on how to do it (he didn't actually know how), and most of all TIME. Someone who knows what they are doing can do it in about 4 hrs. Double that if you don't. Plus, if something went wrong (needed a part, tool, etc), he wouldn't have a car to go get it! So, hopefully later today it will be done.
We are a bit concerned that his car is taking the path of our van. Expensive repairs, one right after another. While the original plan was to get him a new car when my car is paid off....we will have to see if that actually happens. I don't want to sink a ton of money into this car. Crossing fingers that this is the last repair for awhile.
Meanwhile, Sassy and G-man are excited about the Father/Daughter Dance tonight! I am picking Sassy up at school a few minutes early (basically to save the time she would go through dismissal and the bus ride home) to get all glammed up.
I filed her nails last night, vs just cutting them. Her nails grow long QUICK. I put a base coat of polish on last night, so that will be good and dry for the final coat. Man, you would have thought that she was a princess! She thought that filing her nails was so special.
I will do her hair and make-up (just a touch....she is only 10! A little blush, some eyeshadow, and lip gloss). She will be wearing panty hose for the first time, so all of this is very exciting and grown up. My girlfriend made her a corsage (and matching boutonniere for Daddy). She will be quite the princess.
Maybe if you are lucky I will post a picture or two. ;)
She and Daddy will go out to dinner at her favorite chain restaurant, and then dance the night away (or at least until 8pm!) at the dance. There will be a DJ and a photographer there. And all the girls get flowers.
Meanwhile, Bossy and I will have a night to ourselves. No plans yet. Guess we will have to see where the night takes us!
