7 Quick Takes Friday

--- 1 ---
On the 15th, I traded my 2011 Honda Pilot for a 2012 Chrysler Town & Country Minivan.  So far, Im loving it.  I know it's a mini van, and I probably just lost a few cool points.  But let's face it, I have champagne taste on a beer budget.
 I was able to get quite a bit in this T&C for the money.  It was a no-brainer in my book.  It's newer, rides better and has more bells and whistles than the Pilot.  Not only that but I was also able to lower my monthly car payment as well as my car insurance premium. 

I try not to think of my new ride as a mini-van.  "Mini-van" just sounds so..... well, uncool.  LOL!  When my friend was considering a mini-van purchase, she was actually looking at a Sienna, so I couldn't resist poking fun at her a little.  I had to send her the following video.

On the 15th I also transferred my husband's cell service from AT&T to Straight Talk.  He has yet to notice any change in service.  That's a good thing, right?  My oldest son will be the last one I convert.  His cell contract expires in August, so I'll convert him when it expires.  Once I've converted everyone, our cell service will go from $211 per month to only $105.  Yay!

I'm not sure what's going on with my youngest child.  The boys go to summer camp each summer, and they love it.  However, this year my youngest has found one reason after another that he doesn't want to go.  Last week he was extremely chafed, which I consider a legit reason since they spend a large portion of their day outside.  Chafing and sweat?  Ouch!  This past weekend he got a couple of strawberries on his leg from sliding, and he's been trying his best to keep from going to camp because of them. Oh my goodness..... He has whined so much about these scrapes.

I don't have much this week, so to spare you the boredom, I'm going to cut these Quick Takes short.

We'll be travelling to the Baseball Nationals next week, so there won't be a Quick Takes on Friday, June 28th.
