Keep your eyes on the prize


Son: Mom, can I have that new mechanical pencil.

Me: Do you have any money?

Son: Nooooooo, but you do!

Me:  Budget is T-I-G-H-T so you'll have to earn it.

Son:  Okay, what do I have to do?

Me:  Car needs a bath, since you know.... a'hem I can't go through the car wash right now... cause you know, the antenna is broken. (Read the Jonah post to refresh your memory)

Son:  OKAY!  That will be fun!

Me:  Glad you think so Son!

Here is the broken antenna today... 
this is as far back as we can get it in while in it's broken state.

The Prize ~ Mechanical pencil & erasers

The Krazy String was just because it's FUN...
and on clearance!
