Rey stole a dumpling!
The other driver has been found at fault for unsafe lane changing! Jason's car is toast, but they're giving us way more for it than we ever could've gotten in a trade in! We're even getting our deductible back! This is all very good news! Especially because he was putting off like $3,000 worth of repairs and had been ignoring the Check Engine light for months! Let this be a questionable lesson to us all!
The bad news is that my husband now gets to shop for a new car and he is never more annoying to me than when he's shopping for a new car. It will take him months and he will test drive every car on earth. He will look at CarMax listing the way normal people look at Tinder.
DUMPLING UPDATE II:
Finn stole the dumpling!
The only person in the world who is allowed to trim Ike's hair now is my hairstylist. Which sounds like it should be a pain, but she doesn't charge me much and swears Ike is always her best-behaved client of the day.
Also, despite the holes in his pants knees (COME ON CUT-OFF WEATHER I AM NOT BUYING THEM MORE PANTS) this is Ike's attempt at dressing up to impress his "Hair Teacher."
DUMPLING UPDATE III:
Rey has reclaimed the dumpling.
If one of your children decides to:
- build a wooden car as extra credit for his technology education class (because that's what we call wood shop now), and
- leaves an open tube of super glue dripping all over on the kitchen counter, which then
- results in your entire palm getting glued to the kitchen counter,
I recommend a little nail polish remover and a cotton ball. Preferably gently applied before you attempt to pull your hand off the counter.
DUMPLING UPDATE IV:
Poppy ate the dumpling. And Noah's extra-credit wooden car. Luckily we found all the nails?
