    Boring. DH had to work until 3p so I went to my parents' house and he met us there. On the way there, the van broke down. My dad came and I followed him to their house. Luckily, their neighbor works on cars and he looked at it and was able to fix it for $160, a heck of a lot less than any mechanic would have charged.

    We didn't do any fireworks but I swore that next year we are. It's not the 4th of July for me without fireworks; watching them on tv doesn't count.

    Oh no, well atleast it was a fairly inexpensive repair, about a year ago my bf's buddy backed into my car and ripped the bumper off and it was $500 to put it back on. Im the same way with the fireworks, i wait all year to see them this was the best they have been in a long time.

    During the day time hours I was cleaning carpets. LOL Then a cook-out dinner, sparklers with the grandchildren and then fireworks. Very tired and crabby grandchildren that eve and next day.

    It probably would have been at least 3x that. My dad said he was working on the car late into the night, at least until 9:30p.

    I spent Tuesday and Wednesday painting the deck. Actually coating it with a product that goes on really thick. It was a tough project. But the deck looks great.
