Finally Friday...

Neighbors on one side had dirt being delivered by dump truck 'til 10pm last night, and neighbors on another side are having a tree cut down this morning... Sometimes I wish I lived in the middle of nowhere...

Dad didn't plan to, but he found a great deal on a minivan, and bought it yesterday. It's the same make and model as his, but 5 yrs newer and a different color. He had a 2000 Chevy Venturein red with black trim. He's now driving a 2005 in what was described as brown, but I'd call it more of a gun-metal gray or dirty gold. I have to talk to Mike, but I'll probably be buying the 2000 from him.

I got Mom a prepaid cell phone last night for Mom'sDay. I never know what to get her for holidays 'cause she doesn't really have any hobbies, and doesn't really need anything most of the time. But, I stopped by the house on my way home from my sister's Tuesday night, and found out that at one point this winter Mom had been stuck in her car in a ditch for over an hour. A "regular" cell phone wouldn't make sense for her as she'd probably seldom use it, but I'd like her to have one for emergencies. Everyone in the family exceptmy sister hasVerizon cell phones, and I found that if I bought a Verizon pre-paid she would get charged $0.99 per day she uses it, but no minutes for calling from her cell to any other Verizon cell. So that's what I got figuring that way she could call Blayne & Kolby from time to time on one day for $0.99. It came with $10 towards calls, and I bought another $30 so she should be set for a while.

I also wrote an email to Kraft this morning about an issue I had with one of their products... We'll see what kind of response I get before I go into that.
