It's been "one of those weeks". Got the scoop on my car on Tuesday - Magnetic speed sensor inside the transmission that needs replaced. Estimate $975. I said "NO" and picked up my car as it's still running. Thought about it for a couple of days, and decided to get it fixed. Even though I've had numerous issues with my car, I like it. We decided since we are not able to buy a new car right now (3 kids in college people!), it would be advantageous to fix it. So, I dropped it off at lunchtime today, and should have it back on Tuesday. Of course, we'll be about $1000 poorer! It's a good thing Corby will have a great check next week because of his recent overtime!
Today was wild at work. My assistant had to leave unexpectedly around 11:30. She had a wreck about 4 months ago that messed up her back and neck, and she was having major problems today. She went to the ER and got some strong pain medicine, but then had to go home. So I was thrown into a busy Friday by myself. It wasn't my week to work late and paginate classified, but I had to cover it for her. So Corby finally picked me up around 6:30. I am off Monday and Tuesday. So glad because I need those days to recuperate from this week! It's only going to get busier since it's the holiday season, but I'll survive.
Here are some recent pics:

Busy weekend ahead. We are going to a Jewish wedding tomorrow. It will be my first Jewish wedding. Vonnie is a good friend from work, and I'm so happy that she's found her soulmate!
Today's music was actually Bon Jovi. Waiting to see how much tickets will be for their concert at Intrust Bank Arena. I'd like to go, but we'll have to see whether it's affordable.
