By Monday the minivan will be mine

The loan is approved and tomorrow I pick up the paperwork to take to the Credit Union first thing Monday morning.  We also have to put the car on our insurance and swap the plates from the junked car.  I expected to hear from the mechanics today but they never called.  I'm okay with that as we don't have to do anything with the car until next week now.  Free storage all weekend.

Of course that means getting up very early to take Tom to work and picking him up later.  And calling the insurance agent this weekend so we've got the car insured before we pick it up.  It's not the law here anymore but I won't drive a car that's not insured.  My luck doesn't run that well, after all.

I frogged my dad's sock last night because I didn't like it after all and knowing my dad, I don't think he would wear teal socks anyway.  So I'm looking for a pattern for me to wear.  I think I'm going to be a bit selfish this year with my knitting.  I rarely ever make stuff for me.  I'll focus on the socks for me and Zach and finish up the two sweaters and then dig into the stash for the rest of winter knitting.  I've got plenty of stuff to work with and I need a new hat now that I lost my really good winter one.  Although I might replace that with a lumberjack hat.  I've wanted one for years.

I haven't done much today besides straightening up the kitchen.  Supper tonight might just be soup and grilled cheese because I'm so sore and moving so slowly that I don't want to do much of anything tonight.  Besides, we haven't had grilled cheese in ages.  And who doesn't love tomato soup?

Well, off to crash on the couch until time to cook supper.  We had a late lunch so I'm not ready to start cooking just yet.

Congratulations! I hope your minivan is as reliable as ours is. And grilled cheese and tomato soup? Sounds fine to me, and we haven't had that in forever.

I hope so, too, Carol. I could use a reliable car for once. The past 13 years I've been stranded more times than I care to count.
