Barstools and Table we Bought for our new Kitchen

 We went to Sugarcreek on May 1st and looked at  furniture in Weaver's Fine Furniture.  We like this Antique Slate seat and top and white with gassinaier glaze set of table and barstools.  They told us that it would take a while before it can be delivered since they are handmade and the shortage of wood during this pandemic is causing their production some delays.  We didn't mind since our kitchen was still being worked on then.

It actually took them longer to finish it.  We didn't received it until the second week of October.  They delivered it on the day of our 18th wedding anniversary which was nice. 

The barstools for the island  was $187 each, a total of $748.

The barstools for the table cost $157 each, a total of $628
The table cost $667

Overall cost for these set of furniture is $2,043 with $122.58 tax = $2,165.58  I am glad that the delivery was free.  Other than the additional 4 weeks before they finally delivered it, we are happy of this purchase.

Buick Encore for our new Driver

We bought our daughter the Buick Encore for her first car.  We got it  at #1 Cochran Robinson dealership.  The total cost was $25, 014.62 .  It was actually $24, 982 then we got a $1,250 rebate for their promotion deals plus $750 military discount. The 2,000 discount helped a little to lower the cost but with tax and everything, we still ended up paying twenty five grand.  We financed the loan thru General Motors Financial.  I am glad that both hubby and I have a really good credit score, we qualified for a 0 interest loan which is really nice.   

Here she is practicing parallel parking at the DMV in Moundsville before she took the  driver's test. She's been driving long distances and she's doing pretty good. She's a worrier so even though she drives well, she still felt nervous prior to taking the test. She took her driving test on the 9th and she passed. She had to wait till she turned 16 before she could take it but she was fully ready.

I won't go through the features since I am not really good with cars but I found this video on YouTube that shows it.

She is working part time now so she pays for her own gas.  We told her that she will have to learn how to deal with maintaining her car so if she will need new tires, that would be a few hundreds that she will have to shell out her own pocket so as much as she likes to drive around, she need to keep those things in mind.  But of course, we will be paying for it if she can't afford it,.  We just want her to learn to be financially responsible.  Luckily, there is a free maintenance   that was given to her at the dealership but when it runs out, there are promo code online also that she could use for discounts that would be able to save her some bucks.

New Laptop

 My husband  got me an early birthday gift, a laptop.  My computer crashed last year and I haven't been able to do my usual writing routine for a long time.  I thought I wouldn't miss it but I actually do.  I guess, the writing has become part of my life ever since I become a Mom that not writing about my kids events and other moments got me feeling a little lost.  But anyway, I am starting to get back at it again, slowly but surely.  

I prefer desktop over laptop but the good thing about laptop is you can carry it anywhere and with our current situation which is renovating the entire first floor, it's tough to be in the office/  I love the color of this laptop.  I finally was able to download all of the pictures I have stored in the camera.  
My Onedrive  is now full ha ha ha.  I  uploaded all the videos on Youtube so I can delete them in my  laptop.  Thanks my love for this early birthday present.
