I LOVE this car!
It is my blood, sweat and tears car.
My daughter and I worked hard at paying for it
when I was a single mom and she was a teenager.
I gave it to her a couple of years ago,
but we have always traded it back and forth.
Well, the time had come for Amy to sell it.
She really needed the money,
(as she was jobless)
so we had to let it go.
Guess what happened the day after we sold the car?
Amy got a job.
A really really good paying job.
Like she'll be bringing home more than we live on right now.
She will be working at this world wide known,
but Kansas City based company:
She will now be able to support herself,
go to school for free,
and already have her foot in the door to be a Hallmark photographer.
Since the car was hers and mine,
and since she will be getting decent pay,
Amy bought me a new iron, YAY!
( I love this iron. Good steam.
Nice and Heavy.
Light weight isn't always better,
especially in an iron!!)
But, even better...
Yesterday Amy treated me to a MOM's day out.
I got my hair colored, highlighted, and cut.
(Never had my hair colored before.)
Got my eyebrows waxed.
(A new one for me too!)
Got a new wardrobe...
1 shirt, 1 sweater, 1 jacket, 1 pair of jeans,
1 pair of boots, 2 new under garments.
It sure was wonderful!
I've been kind of down on myself since I was pregnant.
When you are over 40 and get pregnant,
and gain a ton of weight because of gestational diabetes,
and have trouble keeping weight off anyway;
and have a C-Section which causes extra saggy tummy;
and lose an almost front tooth....
well...that just doesn't make a person feel good about themselves,
(Um, NO, this isn't really me.)
I'm lookin' good now!
I'll be lookin even betterer (hey, this is a word if I want it to be!) soon.
Our YMCA has an income-based program.
(only, sadly, our Y doesn't have a pool. oh well.)
