Our 2016 Mission and A Favorite Person!!

So what did I get done this week? Hmmmmm, I did manage to stop myself from spilling wonderful and slick homemade lotion all over so that is a big plus.
My phone is hanging on by a thread. Bless its corrupt little heart. It has to make it one week and then DJ can have at it.
My computer still seems to be virus free. Yay!!! I use the free version of Housecall and I use  microsoft malicious software removal tool. I had a programmer that worked for microsoft tell me that is what he used. He said when combined they work better than any program out there because its updated by the programmers.
I have gotten 2 of the 3 stickers for the car plates. I'll spend some time this weekend sorting my van sticker. Den told me that the state of IL has collected over $1 million in fines already because people's car plates are expiring and they aren't sending notices. Bastards.
I'm still having a bit of a problem getting Den to work on the Amanti. Sigh. I want to stick a for sale sign in it and be done but it needs muffler work. He's not real jazzed to do it. So I guess that means that I will be sorting car insurance this weekend too. The car Anna has is insured by us and the Amanti in the driveway is under her policy so everything has to be flipped. Which means I have to track Anna down and do a conference call since its her policy and I can't change it without her.
Hmmm, this sounds like less of an accomplishment list and more like a to do list. On a good note, I haven't been dieting and I haven't gained. And I am still Spring cleaning so I got more of that done. Not that you would ever notice! And I did set up a new budget which is just a bit higher than the last one.  Oh, I almost forgot, I have knocked even more off of the car loan/credit card balance. If we sell the car, I will be soooooooooo close to having it paid. That is a happy note.
And my favorite person for the day is Jane from Crabapple Landing!!! She carved that!!!! AMAZING!!! It is so beautiful and unique. She is talented and a kind soul. It's been a long journey for her but I have to say that she has handled everything that life has thrown at her and made her own way. And I love the way that she budgets! She is an inspiration on every level. Stop over by her place and tell her she is great!
Love ya,
Sonya Ann

Thanks Sonya Ann! You are so sweet and it's nice to be someone's favourite person!!! I'm grateful that you didn't post the photo of my latest phallic-shaped sculpture lol! I'm still working on it, and working on it...perhaps my art is taking a pornographic twist?! We're doing the automotive shuffle here - our registration fees went from $74 annually to $98!! And I heard this week in our new provincial budget that that price is going up AGAIN!! I'm considering becoming car-free, not even kidding!!

Good news about the car almost being paid off. Soon the vehicles will be all sorted and you will not have to worry about them...for a while lol. Jane is amazing, isn't she?

Popped over to Jane's site to see that piece in multiple angles-so cool! I got a kick out of her in process piece. I can be juvenile at times.

Love that carving.
Your to-do list makes me shudder - but it will be a HUGE accomplishment when it is done. Go you.

You can do it! At which point Den owes you a foot-rub, I think.

Thank you for mentioning your computer being virus-free. I ran both programs on my computer yesterday, and I am thrilled with the results!

Sonya Ann said...

Anonymous-I am so glad!!! I always see it as we have to help each other. That's why I ramble on and on cuz I think you need every last detail. I have sort of a droning effect on people, kids, pets. ;p

Great post. You mentioned you had trouble with car insurance. Have you ever thought about how your car insurance provider works for you? Or if the one that you have chosen is the right pick? When I wanted to get car insurance for myself I had to research the best providers of car insurance in Canton MA, which is the city where I'm from. I would definitely recommend requesting multiple quotes from different providers before making a decision.
