Thursday, we ran around and took care of all the researched stuff from Wednesday. We started the day going to a junk yard to get a full size rim for my car, so we have a full size spare. From there we went to Ogies cafe for breakfast. I love that place. Yummy. After Ogies we went straight to Costco to get my tires checked out. We thought I only needed two new tires, but I needed four. Sucks. They were all wearing badly because I didn't get an alignment after Dustin replaced my struts a while back. Oh whale. Live and learn. We were at Costco forever, because we had to wait for my car to be done, so we looked around. We found a memory foam pillow top thingy for our bed for $158 and if you had a coupon it was 35 dollars off. We didn't have a coupon, but Dustin's Mom did, so she brought it to us. We dilly dalllied around the store waiting for them, and then she said that she could watch Miaya. (While we were walking around, Dustin got a hold of the jeep tire guy, so Dustin needed to go and get them in Roy. :P) So we went home to get Miaya's stuff together for an afternoon with Grandma and Grandpa. They spoil her. She was in desperate need of a nap, so they said she could nap over there. It seemed to work out well: Dustin and I would go and get the jeep tire, Miaya would stay at Ray and Rhea's for the afternoon. The jeep tire business was quick, after the 45 minute drive, and no nonsense. Thank goodness. We get back and Rhea (my mother in law) tells us that Miaya just barely fell asleep. It was like 3 pm! oh deer. Oh, and my car also needed an alignment and when they were trying to align it, they found out I had a bad tie rod. So frustrating. They were quick though.
All told, we spend a whole lot of money, we spent a whole lot of time, we spent a whole lot of energy. It was good to get it all done. I am hoping that after all this, the rest of the weekend goes well, and that we might even throw in a roadtrip to New Mexico for good measure. It's almost 2 in the afternoon, so we probably won't leave today. We'll have to see.
