Car number 120 is a blue Ford Focus. We decided it would be a good idea to have one of our cars be a little better on gas consumption because Doug will be traveling more again soon. We decided to replace the Freestyle, which was a hard decision for me, because I have really enjoyed that car.

Here is a view of the purse "fully loaded". It has three pockets to store things.
The front pocket holds my sunglasses and three keyrings - one for the keys to my car, the house and the mailbox, a second with the keys to my husband's car, the third is the key to my parent's home. I keep them all in my purse because I will then know where they are, and because I never know when Doug may want to trade cars in the middle of the day while I'm at work.
The next pocket holds my planner (a glorified address book since I really don't have much to put on a calendar), a notebook, a list of my co-workers, my work nametag and a lotion and Tide stain stick (in a baggie from the last time I went on a plane), and a band-aid.
The back pocket usually holds my wallet (with driver's license, various cards, and sometimes even money. The checkbook is there too. Various beauty aides - lipstick, lipgloss, toothpicks (cool plastic ones-the green and white item on the right) and medicines.

Now, do I count it on our list or remove it? We did have a contract of sale and it was in our possession for about 24 hours. What to do, what to do??

There was no discussion, no "I think I want to get something different", just an "I'm going to Mesquite" when he dropped me off after taking me to lunch today. Silly me, I thought it was for work. He has gone there to talk to the people at the Ford dealership about a program for the credit union a couple of times..... or has he?????
I came home and saw a different vehicle in the driveway. Sometimes, at least lately, that means he is showing a vehicle to someone else or driving a vehicle from one dealership to another. But for most of our lives (as our children can tell you) it means dad has found a reason to buy a new vehicle..... such as, "You don't need to have a van, you are alone in it most of the time", or, "We need to get a van so the kids can use it when they visit this summer", or the most used excuse, "They traded me straight across and it's more comfortable, it get better gas mileage, it has less miles, etc, etc, etc".

We were also able to listen to the messages and testimonies of our church leaders. There were many inspiring talks, which, as usual, make me want to be a better person and treat others in a more Christ-like way. It is wonderful to feel the spirit testify to me of the truth of what is said at General Conference.
