The Parents left on Monday, having had a great visit with us. An earlier discussion with my father about how we didn't have the cash to fix my windshield right now, led to a mystery phone call Monday from SafeLite Auto Glass. Apparently, dad had set up an appointment to have them come out and replace the windshield, and had already given Melissa the cash to pay for it. Apparently, it's an early Christmas gift.

That's so like my parents. Ever since they moved to Hawaii ten years ago, they don't know what frivolous stuff I may want, but they find out what I actually NEED, such as a working television or a Futon-Couch, and get it for me. They're so darned practical, and God bless them for it. Now that I'm an adult, and I don't need to be surprised by shiny new toys under the tree on December 25th, I can always count on them to get me something I actually need, but might not think to ask for.

In other news, we are T-minus 7 days and counting until the London Trip... and we don't have reservations for anything except the plane and the room. AIIIGH!
