3 pieces of news

News from our mechanic: We narrowly escaped going up in flames, so that's good, right? Now Clover has a new, non-leaking fuel injector and 2 new front tires as well. If you know someone who wants a decent back-and-forth-to-work car, let me know, 'kay? We're ready to sell now that we know that Clover's not a fireball in disguise.

News from the Toyota dealership: We have to come in tonight to "run some numbers." Aren't those the scariest words ever? We got preapproved yesterday for an auto loan, so at least we'll be meeting them from a position of strength. Except I don't think we'll be able to negotiate much since there's such demand for the Yaris. Yikes. For real, if y'all have any tips, please let me know.

News from the HUD Home Improvement & Beautification grant program: We have a home inspector coming over tonight to take a look at the house and recommend possibilities for improvement. I could give him a 3-page list, but whatever. It's times like these that I'm glad we live in a low-income neighborhood. You know the rich folks don't get HUD grants to fix up their homes and yards!
