We decided to take our car in for an oil change & a travel inspection since we'd be driving it across the country. We seriously needed new tires & a couple of other things done to it before it could make the trip, so we are waiting for a call from the shop right now so that we can go & pick it up. Although it cost more than we'd like to spend right before our vacation, it was pretty badly needed & we'll have a safer trip because of it.
We also thought we'd take today to catch up on our laundry & house cleaning so that it wouldn't be so bad right before we leave. Since it has been so stinking hot outside today, we've been a little lazier about that part of it & only one load of laundry has made it as far as the dryer.
On a brighter note, we have been on the lookout for some new button-up shirts for David since most of his are black & are starting to wear out. When we were waiting for the shop to finish the travel inspection, we walked next door to the DI (Deseret Industries - the thrift store) & looked around. We ended up finding 3 new shirts for David for $4 each. They were really new looking. One of them still had the original tags on it (which said it should have cost $37.50). We were extremely pleased with our find!
Well, back to cleaning I go...
