a) Depression strikes again. It certainly hasn't been anything like last year, but I have spent too many days reading books and watching movies, lacking all motivation to do, well, anything.
b) Living with the in-laws. Mr. H-B works in his hometown during the summer; we live with his parents to save on gas. It's stressful, to say the least.
c) Good-bye Camry. I've had my car since January of 2003. It has been a dream, traveling from Utah to Massachusetts to Indiana to New Mexico and everywhere in between. It was reliable, had ice-cold A/C and got great gas mileage. The suspension and transmission have failed in the last two weeks. We just can't afford to sink $2500 into a car that is only worth $3100 (at most). We're following Dave Ramsey's advice and buying what we can afford...a Police Interceptor Crown Victoria (it's as hilarious as it sounds).
d) Lost phone, FedEx limbo, etc, etc, etc. Fate just keeps piling it on...
I think I might have finally learned my lesson. Summer does not equal shiny perfection.
