What do we have to be thankful for? *Grumble*

It's been an interesting month so far. I wrecked the Escort and it's looking like we're going to be lucky to get a couple hundred dollars for it, if anything. That's the "loss of use" amount offered by the other insurance company. They are claiming I'm 50 percent responsible for the accident when I was driving on a street with no stop sign for me, but their (15-year-old) driver had a stop sign. The amount for the car will probably go to the finance company. So, we won't be able to replace the car. Kent's car is still out of commission.

Kent's still recovering from knee replacement surgery and has to go to physical therapy three times a week. I'm driving my niece's '92 Pontiac Grand Prix, which is a total gas hog. It's solidly built, though, which is better if we are in an accident.

I signed up for NaNoWriMo but haven't written anything. The end of the month is coming up awfully fast.

The Lifestyle editor at work has been out sick for basically the whole month so far. We're not sure when she's coming back, but it's not before Wednesday. I didn't have to work on the Senior Tab, which I should be thankful for. I thought I was going to, but they had someone else (who had never done it before) do it. *shrug*

I took Amanda out of school to homeschool her but can't get her to do anything. *rolls eyes* I'm going to have to crack down, but I really don't know what I'm doing.

We've basically pawned everything we can, except the TV. I wanted to get my laptop out, but couldn't afford it. I had promised Cayla to get her Nintendo DS out, but couldn't do that either. So I spent $5 on a flying monkey. You can fling it across the room and it makes a howling noise. Cayla loves it. Kent hates it.

Yeah, it's nice to be able to get this out of my system.
