I’ve made the mac & cheese, the turkey & ravioli, both steak dishes and the broccoli cheese soup last week. We had take out one night & Brad cooked another.
This is the boys’ last week of school. They want shrimp scampi on Friday to celebrate and if I never make the chicken & sweet potato salad that would be fine with Mayhem.
Mayhem hates sweet potatoes.
Havoc has a science fair on Tuesday. So far he has made half a poster. I think more is required but as I have never seen any handouts or homework sheets about it I have no idea really. I didn’t even know there was a science fair until Friday when there was a flyer invitation to the fair.
I made him make an example out of Legos just in case.
I feel like this is going to be a long week.
I stopped packing lunches 2 weeks ago. I don’t know what meals the school is serving or whether the boys like them. I don’t care either. They haven’t complained so they must be finding something to eat.
Maybe the school gave up too & is just serving hot dogs, hamburgers & pizza instead of salsbury steak or pot pie or BBQ sandwiches.
Wednesday I am supposed to take the car into the collision repair place because I did this
But the car’s water pump is leaking too & it’s wedged in in such a way the whole engine has to come out to fix it, so a grand or more to fix it probably, in addition to the $500 deductible for the body work.
I’m trying to sort out if I can put off the body work so I can get the water pump repaired. But that could take a few days & I need the car to go to work this week.
I get a rental car free while the body work gets done due to my insurance but I get nothing while the water pump is repaired so maybe I should just risk the leaking pump & get the body work done first. But the body shop is almost an hour away & that’s a long way to go with a faulty water pump.
It’s like universe absolutely does not want us to go to an amusement park or on any day trips. Last year DH’s transmission failed costing us $1800 in repair work. Looks like my car stuff will probably cost about as much this year.
