One on One with Billy

I took Billy out to Applebee's yesterday afternoon. We had a really good time together. We talked about his job, his future, and many other things. After we stuffed ourselves we both ordered a huge desert. Here he is trying out the new chocolate cookie sundae. Yumm! It was really great to just hang out with him alone.
Also an update on my car. Of course you know my other car was a total loss. Well, the insurance company paid my entire balance that I still owed to the car lot and I had $1700 dollars left. I went to talk to the owner of my company and told him that I really wanted to get something cheaper for the time being. We are trying to get our finances on track and my other car payment was a bit much. So he surprised me when he said I could buy this 2001 Buick for $1600 cash! I could not turn that down. The car is so nice with leather interior. It may not be exactly what I want but I am so happy that I have no car payments right now. What a blessing.

Sounds like you had a wonderful time with you son! Congratulations on the car! It looks exactly like mine only mine doesn't have leather interior! They drive so nicely though!

As for our music, I don't have it on my play list because we haven't added it to the website yet...hopefully we will soon! Thanks for the sweet comment on our music. I really appreciate it and like that you enjoy it!

Have a blessed evening!

I take my son out with just him alone every so often as well, just to catch up on life and future plans. We sometimes even go to Applebees!

I love spending one on one time with my kids, it really helps you to stay close and catch up on what's happening in their lives. Wow! What a deal you got on the car! I would say it was a blessing in disguise because it was financially freeing. It is a beautiful car!

Hugs, Sharon
