Cue: Freak Out

I've run into some car trouble and my junker is on it's last leg.  I've got to make some decisions about how the chunk is either going to be a) repaired, or b) replaced.  It's going to be pricey to repair and frankly, it's just not worth that much.  I can get it driveable again, but it's going to need a lot more work in the near future.  I thought I might try to replace it, which is a little tricky since I don't work.  I have a power of atty for my husband, but I just learned that along with that, lenders also would like either a phone call or an email (only from the Army's email account) from my husband that allows me to take out a loan in his name.  I explained to the lady at the bank that he has no internet service and can't call whenever I need him to.  She basically said too bad, that's what we need from him to get you a loan.  Then I started crying and hung up on her.  I'm so awesome. 

On top of all of this, I actually missed a call from Gunnar yesterday - completely didn't hear my phone, and missed the call by exactly 2 minutes.  Thank goodness that I had company and couldn't cry the rest of the day (like I normally would have).  I broke my awesome streak of never missing his call for the last 4 months. 

Other than all of those fun messes, I had an amazing weekend with a great friend.  That's right, I actually had visitors!!  It was wonderful to have someone to hang out with and cook with and laugh with and I'm so grateful. 

Well I've got some stuff to figure out.  Wish me luck!
