Vehicular news

My car, she is fixed! And, after 27 days of assholery by the driver who hit me and his esteemed insurance company (first he didn't give them my contact information, then he wouldn't return calls when they tried to get a statement...), the adjuster has authorized funds to be released to pay for the repairs! And released they have been- the appraiser confirmed the payee information with me yesterday and put it in the mail. Woo hoo! In other news, I had my first meeting last night for the car raffle committee at DD's school. Somehow, I became the chair of the committee. The bad news is, I've never done a car raffle in my life and have never chaired a fundraiser before. The good news is, the HSA has done all the legwork (secured a car, set a drawing date) and being chair means that we are automatically credited the full 30 service hours required of each family for the school year. So, my internet friends, get your PayPal accounts ready so you can take a chance on a lovely, 2006 Vista Blue Ford Mustang! Only $30 a ticket, or 4 for $100! You know you want it...

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
