We say goodbye to our car today

The morning is off to a fairly decent start. Everyone is willingly going to school but Elliott was very difficult wake up. I think that’s caused by not sleeping well and being a teenager. Either way, it’s frustrating.

Anyway, it’s a short week and today is the last day of school.

The plan is to take the boys to school, go walking and then get to my parents house so I can scrap our old car. As you may recall, the brake lines blew in front of my parents house and it’s been stuck there since.

A flatbed is scheduled to arrive around 11AM and pay me a whopping $140 for the car. As much as I hated that car, it saw us through some very difficult times and I’m grateful for that.

The kids are a bit unsure of how to react to this but we pillaged some souvenirs. They wanted all the logos from the car for some reason. I figured if it made them feel better about it, okay. They build emotional attachments to things like this and it’s hard for them to let go. Hopefully, this helps.
