New Car Smell

Well, not really – but we have a new/used car smell. Today we purchased a 2002 Mitsubishi Magna Wagon for a price that was quite resonable and we are quite happy with. We need to get a couple of things done (like a good clean inside and out) but we needed to get a car […]

10:15am In case you’re playing along at home, Lisa is back in hospital again. No, it’s not fun being so out of control. No, it’s not easy having to rely on other people so much. Yes, I’m sure there is a good lesson to be learnt in all of this.
