Countdown to college dorm move in

Dear Kid,

Sorry for the late post today. What with all the running around (which had nothing to do with getting ready for college and everything to do with running general errands), the day somehow got off balance.

It’s a good thing your father enjoys negotiating. As you know, we are car shopping. As you may know, I LOATHE car shopping (which is one of the reasons my car is nine thousand years old (give or take a decade or two)). There is just absolutely nothing good about the process. With the possible exception of having a new vehicle at the end, but even that is iffy.

At this rate I figure I’ll have a new car by the time you get married. Maybe.

In the meantime, I continue to enjoy the unusually cool August weather (which goes nicely with my non-existent car air conditioning).

Love, Mom
