Yes, it's my birthday and I've already received birthday greetings from my other reader. Thank you!
My husband was going to take me out to dinner last night, but I ended up spending the afternoon at Midas having my van worked on...to the tune of over $750.00. Well, it's better than a sock in the eye, I guess. I've got a good vehicle, and with proper maintenance will do well for several more years to come. And after only a few more months of car payments, the monthly payment can be banked toward future repairs. And I always like banking money instead of paying it out.
As my heroine Maxine says, "Take every birthday with a grain of salt. This works much better if the salt accompanies a Margarita."
