Just Fix It

Yesterday, on his way to work, Matt's radiator blew.

We've known since... oh, October or so that it was coming but all the health stuff and then the holidays and everything sort of put it on the back burner.

So what did we do?

Called around, found the best price [Republic Radiator], took it in and said "Fix it."

Do you know what it's like to have something go wrong on your car and just... fix it? We contemplated buying a radiator and Matt and probably his step-dad installing it, but to do so was only about $40 cheaper than having it done. It wasn't worth it. We had the money and just... fixed it.

And that was nice.

Our little guy is doing better still. He's still growing, albeit a little more slowly the last couple weeks. He still [easily] wears 0-3mo clothes, but he rolled back to front this week and about wiggled out of his bouncy seat so that he's now in his exersaucer [but his little feet barely touch the bottom even on the lowest level - literally - if he stretches, his toes just brush it]. Matt's fully recovered and the lithotripsy bill's already been paid for by the insurance.

We got our first call for this Spring's FPU class - that was exciting. We watched a couple of the preview clips last night and it's very exciting. Dave recorded all new DVDs last year with updated info and stats. Even if you've already taken it, I recommended checking it out. You won't need new kits, but new workbooks/CDs are available for a reasonable price. If you're in the area and interested, you can find more information about FPU in general here or our FPU class here.

Isn't that an awesome feeling!?!?!
It was so nice when our dryer died to just go buy a new one. And even more when you are able to cash flow an emergency and not touch your EF!

OH Wow! You're a Dave Ramsey listener!! Shimauma here from the LNC boards, I saw your website quote about "Normal is BROKE!" and thought, hey that sounds like Dave Ramsey. I used to live in Nashville TN so I used to listen to him all the time. That's so cool that FPU is working out for you. We've got a couple of years to work on our snowball yet, but the links on your site are very helpful.

God Bless!
