it’s a little less painful

thanks to our insurance (gieco) we get a rental car while they are fixing our window. i went to pickup the rental car and on a whim i asked how much over the insurance amount it would be to have a mustang convertible. they told me it was a whooping $10. i figured we would only be out of our caravan for a day or two and therefore it would be fun to see pam drive around in a convertible. i’m not real big on the whole hot car thing but i do have a soft spot for mustangs. they are just cool (especially a cherry red 1967 convertible stang with a 289 in it). i was right. she looks even cuter than normal when seen in a red stang convertible. of course, the collision center called back and said it would take two to three business days to get one part so it now looks like we’ll have the mustang for six day but still $60 isn’t a bad deal for seeing my wife in a car that looks almost as hot as she does. 🙂

what a pain

i took some of the youth to baton rouge laser tag last night and of course pam went with us (if you know pam then you probably know that she has this weird obsession with laser tag). while we were in the facility someone decided it would be a good idea to bust in our passenger side front window and steal pam’s purse. they didn’t take anything else, not the ipod that was right beside it, not the other girls’ purses that were in the back of the vehicle, nothing. they took pam’s purse which had a credit card, a debit card, 2 gas cards, her checkbook, cellphone, and $1.09. pam and i started calling all the card companies last night to make sure that they were canceled and we have continued today. it has been a real pain. according to the officer who worked up our case there have been a lot of such auto break ins recently, all of them looking for cash. i guess it sucks to risk getting caught and get $1.09. i hope it ticked those guys off.

it really stinks.
