Marge to the popsicle rescue

This morning, after dropping the boy off at school I needed to get the VW to the repair shop. I wasn't too worried about overheating anything this morning, since the school is about 2 1/2 miles form the house and the shop is about half a mile back towards the house from there.

The only glitch in getting to the shop ASAP was that I needed to stop in the school cafeteria and add some money to The Talker's lunch account, since he decided at the last minute that he wanted to buy lunch today. I am fairly certain that the deciding factor was not the Cheesy Lasagna, but it was the realization that he could buy a rainbow popsicle if he went through the hot lunch line. A boy after my own heart...

Of course, in the rush to get the car to the shop, I forgot to walk into the cafeteria. Even though I walked right by there twice during morning drop-off.

Once the repair shop shuttled us home, I realized that I did not want to be responsible for the boy missing out on his popsicle due to not having enough fundage in his lunch account. And I just could not figure out a way to blame it on the mommy, so The Princess and I hopped in Marge to go back and make the deposit. Now the boy will be able to chow down on a rainbow popsicle at lunch.

Having an extra car rocks! Especially if it is as cool as Marge!

In case you are new here, Marge is our 40 year old Chevy truck. You can read more about her over at TruckinDaddy.

Anyways, on the way back home we decided that our popsicle rescue mission should be rewarded. So the girl and I cruised by Krispy Kreme. Good stuff! Thanks to Marge!

We can add money to our accounts online. But we had to restrict J's ice cream purchases to Friday. He was originally allowed 2 days a week but couldn't handle that responsibility (and didn't know I had a way of checking!).

Yeah, we can do the online thing,but I don't want to pay the premium fee for the service. They allow tracking of purchases, too.

It only takes us 5 minutes to get to the school, so it usually isn't too much hassle.
