I'm thrilled that Matt got a B when he retook English IV (he flunked it the first time).

Oh yeah, the mortgage arm of Wells Fargo IMO is awful. They were our buyer's lender, and initially the husband didn't have his wife on the loan (HUD, I think). Apparently he had to add her to the loan, and then by law there is a 10 day waiting period, which 1) wells fargo didn't know and 2) it could have been taken care of much earlier anyway and 3) resulted in us closing 10 days late and accruing more fees for our end -- which those bozos really should have covered given it was their fault. So yeah, no respect from me on that end. But the banks here have really been the only shining star in what was a difficult move. They let me put money into any account I want whether I'm on his checks or not (I never am) and that's nice. Wachovia would never put his checks in our joint accounts even with his signature. I never understood it.That they're not holding funds is a HUGE bonus.

Yeah, the Jeep thing is scary. I-10 is a mess during off hours. During the morning/evening commutes it's spectacularly scary. That's mainly why I just let him take my Jeep. He's got nerves of steel to deal with this commute every day. I would go stark raving mad.

I think technically, I've still a week or so to go until I'm at the midway point of the pregnancy. But, I'm hoping to go early. So maybe I am truly half-way there! I wish I could predict. Libby was late, Will was early, and Jake was early but was induced (Will is the only one I experienced true, on-my-own labor with). But if I'm pregnant in Texas in August, I'll surely melt. LOL.

Go, Matt, go!! I'm really happy that he's doing well. I hope the math thing goes well, too. Your Matt and my Jake are the same kid. No Ds/Fs just yet, but we flirt with them every grading period. He's smart but just doesn't care. Drives me crazy.

Thrilled that it's almost the weekend. Work is kicking my butt. All of us, really, and getting worse. I offered to pick up two studies over vacation (they're traditionally mine and I can bang initial reports out in <2 hours) but the managing partner won't let me. If I happen to get data by EOD on Friday, I'll do them over the weekend. It's better if I do them. And, she didn't say I couldn't work this weekend! Mwahahahahaaa!

Not-so-thrilling or thrilling depending on your POV is that we had to run hubby's Jeep to the shop this morning. We've known he needs his fuel injection flushed, so I'm hoping this is the problem, but it keeps dying while he's driving -- happened this morning on the interstate. So, we'll see what's what after they look at it. He's got my Jeep today and tomorrow if he needs it, and he's OOT next week so we don't need both wheels. Does mean I may hit the airport not twice but three times in 4 days. Good grief. But that saves in parking, even though we'd get reimbursed. Eventually. ;)

And, we got our 401k loan check AND it deposited the same day -- usually when we have a big fat check they make us wait 7-10 days to clear it. We just recently got into Wells Fargo (was Wachovia pre-merger or buyout or whatever) and I tell you, I love them. Best bank ever for us.

Hope everyone has a great Thursday!
