I guess it's time for a blog

I don't think I mentioned in my last blog (or I haven't blogged since) but my computer died :( That is probably one of the main reasons I haven't blogged in a while. I really miss having my computer, or any computer for that matter. I have access to Rob's if I really need one but he usually has it unhooked because he uses his monitor for his xbox and his computer had viruses so it runs slow and not always that great. However, I am thankful that I have my phone at this time. I can do just about everything that I would normally do on my computer (but slower) except play farmville. Hopefully soon I will get a new one.

Other big news around here, I got a new car! I can't remember if I blogged about that or not but I decided in a VW Jetta. My parents came into town yesterday to go to the dealer with me. I had to have my mom sign with me because of my credit. I didn't get as good of a deal as I hoped but it is doable. The special was supposed to be for $199/month but I knew it would be more because 1) I wasn't putting anything down and 2) we don't have perfect credit. I was still hoping that it would be less than my last car payment but I did not get that lucky. Luckily, it only went about about $10 a month. I should be saving about that much in car insurance though so it will just about even out. This afternoon I went to pick it up and I LOVE it!! I'm so excited.

On the not so happy side of things, two of my grandparents are in the hospital. My grandfather had a "mini" stroke the other day and is having surgery on Monday. My Oma has CHF and was admitted into the hospital yesterday. We are not sure what is going to happen with her yet but she did loose about six pounds of water weight so that is good.

Anyway, I am sick of re-typing every other word because for some reason the spell check on this phone does not work as well in blogger so I will have to post more later.
