What in the world have we been doing all week? Being awesome. Also, some other stuff. Scroll on down to check it out
What Am I doing?
Well, it’s our anniversary week, celebrating 4 years of awesome marriage to a wonderful gal. We’re doing a dinner tomorrow, and then hanging out on a day date all day Saturday. Before our first anniversary, we agreed to have one person plan the anniversary activities. We switch off every other year, and this year it’s Mrs. iHB’s turn. So…I have no idea what we’re doing, but I’m pretty excited. And since we don’t make enough to cover the bills, it’ll be an inexpensive, fun date
Car Accident Update:
So this car accident thing has been dragging a bit, but it’s finally getting resolved. When I took it in to the shop, I told them it might be totaled and they talked to me about a “Cash out” option. I’ll explain more details in an upcoming post, but basically I called the insurance company, they sent someone out to evaluate the car’s book value, and I will be getting a check instead of repairs. Since the car is drivable, this is perfect.
Ok, on to the good stuff:
