You know, once your HEMI hits 100,000 miles, there is a feeling of pride, accomplishment, and well, in my case, utter shock. I've never owned a vehicle that lasted long enough to get that many miles. For the most part, I get rid of a vehicle after about 3 years no matter what I owe or what it's worth. But, from the first time I got in my truck, I knew I had to have it and keep it.
What's in store for my truck? well, I still owe on it - about a year. Once it's paid off, I am hoping to let it hang out and use it as we need to. Then, when Tyler turns 16, he will either get the truck or I will pass my 'vehicle after the truck' on to him. I'll just have to wait and see how things are going when Tyler reaches the scary age of legal driving.
In the meantime, I have been busy online, too. See, I may have mentioned on here that my Aunt sent me a shoebox full of cards. If I haven't mentioned it, well, there ya go - she did!
There were so many cards, I had to break the posts into four separate discussions!
And "The everything else" edition
Feel free to check those out, but I warn you, the baseball one is pretty long!
I have also been adding to "A pack to be Named Later" where the card-collecting community is trying to open at least one pack of every kind of trading card ever made. My latest "creation?" A post in which I used "The Cat in the Hat" as the launching pad for a post about a couple packs of cards that were made in conjunction with the movie starring Mike Meyers. Wanna read it? sure you do... It's right HERE...
I have also been visiting Mom in the hospital every day (except today - Wednesday - because I got home late from a work-related road trip). She is battling whatever it is that is making her intestines go haywire. I am going to talk to her doctor about it myself. It's basically gone on for two years, and it's way beyond letting things simply go on like they are just because they can't figure out what's wrong. Sometimes, you have to stop trying to find out what's wrong and just move forward with getting life back to normal, or as close to whatever 'normal' will be.
I know that seems impatient of me, and much of it comes from the frustration of it all. I'm sure I'll calm down eventually. :-)
I'm also working on my next installment of "40 Things..." So be looking for that soon!
