I’ll start off with the update: I finally got my car back! After two weeks in the shop, $400 in repairs, and a new serpentine belt, timing belt and water pump, she runs like new. Only now I think another one of my wheel bearings is going, but I’m not surprised. Three out of the four of them are original, so they’re ten years old and have 112,000 miles on them.
Now for the news: due to my newfound interest in football (BTW – my husband says “FINALLY”) I’m declaring next week to be Superbowl Week. I’m going to be posting party tips, football party cookbook reviews, and other related information almost every day, on top of my regular stuff.
Also, this is for those of you who love camping as much as I do. If you’re a camper who brings along your fuzzy friend, Kampground of America is holding a contest that you may be interested in. Here are the details from the press release:
“With all of KOA’s sites being pet friendly and campers being so wild about taking their pets, KOA has just announced its Picture Paw-fect Pet Contest. Pet lovers can submit photos of their pet dressed up for a special event, showing off or just looking cute on a camping trip, up until February 9, 2011. The top 10 will photos will then be featured in the February edition of KOA’s Kompass magazine, where the audience will vote for the most “Paw-fect Pet” beginning February 16. The winner will receive $250 in great pet gear and two nights of free KOA camping anywhere in the nation.”
