I didn't think it was going to turn out this way, but looks like we will be living with no car. Ben just got the call from the auto place that the car is dead. It needs a whole new engine which would cost more than what we paid for the car 2.5 years ago. Ben is trying to figure out how to get the car from the auto place to the junkyard so we can at least get money from it to cover the towing cost from last night. I am not sure how to even function without a car, but if anybody has suggestions let us know. How do you get groceries, pick up the kids from school if something happens, get to appointments and so on? I am going to look into cancelling Zak's class at the Y and Ben's volleyball at the Y since we won't be getting there anytime soon. Might also have to look into cancelling our membership.

The earlier bedtime seems to be paying off. Saturday night they were in bed by 7:30pm and asleep by 8pm. Then they slept until about 7am this morning. Hopefully this will continue!
After the Redskins game ended Ben took Zak to his mom's house for a sleepover because Ryder has an appointment at Kennedy Krieger in the morning. While he was gone Ryder and I did an art project and made dinner.

The boys are going to stay up to watch a few minutes of the Redskins game as long as they behave long enough. Tomorrow I am planning to take the boys to the daycare room at the YMCA and get in a workout.

As for the install and new stuff in the house...we had a new outdoor AC unit, furnace, and water heater put in. Our AC unit has been failing all summer, the water heater was about to burst and the furnace should have died a while ago so it was time. We got a few estimates from various places and went with a company named Level Heating and Air Conditioning. They work in Harford, Cecil, and Baltimore counties and they were wonderful so anybody in those areas who needs this work done should check them out.
Tomorrow Ben is going back to work. I know the boys will be very upset when they see him leave tomorrow morning since they have had him home for the last 2 days. But the good thing is he will be off for the weekend so it is only one day back to work. I think the plan is for Tim to spend the night tomorrow night as well and then head back to NH sometime on Saturday.
