Today we finally received the part we had to order for our Jeep, a silly brake light sensor that cost more to ship then the actually part. Last week, our brake lights would never turn off so we were unable to drive anywhere or our battery would die. Bobby, being the handyman he is, figured out what was wrong. I was very relieved that it was not something major because we definitely don't have the money for major! Charlie is back in business!

After Bobby replaced the part, we drove over to my mom's house and hung out with everyone. I was happy to pick up my mail! I still use my mom's address even though I live at Bobby's so I only pick up my mail about once/twice a week. Bobby and I went through my mom's shed while we were over there because almost everything I own is still in boxes (from when we moved out of our apartment in July 2009!) in there. So I took the rest of my mail supplies and other crap I hoard back to Bobby's. Also received my replacement social security card in the mail along with all the nice mail.

Tomorrow Bobby and I are going over to my old high school because my niece has a track meet over there. I am pretty excited to, hopefully, see all my old teachers. I went to that high school for 10th and part of 11th grade. My 10th grade year was by far the best time I had in school, every teacher I had was amazing and, even though I was a complete loner, I had a lot of fun. 11th grade was a huge disappointment after such an amazing year so I dropped out a few months in and completed the rest of my schooling in an independent study program. The decision to drop out was one of the best decisions I have made because I was able to graduate a year early and did so with a pretty awesome GPA.

This is from Katie. I love the stamps and the letters she used for my name! Thanks Katie!

All three Colorado postcards are for the Places/Locations Swap on Swap-bot (Colorado is my favorite state)


Outgoing mail has been pretty shitty lately... haven't been in much of a mood to create. Bobby and I have gotten into a pretty bad habit of staying up til at least 3 in the morning. I usually end up making mail late at night and I get tired of doing it after putting together 1 envelope. I was planning on doing some mail tonight but I don't think that is going to happen...
But! I have a new pen pal from my new favorite website, Going Postal. Pretty excited about that!

I'll leave you with some pictures I took with my Fujifilm Instax when we were on our road trip. Row-add.


  1. Gorgeous postcards/letters! I really love the cow one AND your Colorado ones. Colorado really is beautiful.

  2. yippee I'm glad you got my letter! I'm glad you got Charlie fixed too! I hate when our car breaks down. Have a great weekend!

  3. Becky - Thanks! The cow one is super cool.

    Katie - Thanks again for yr letter!! It definitely does suck when a car breaks down!
