To everyone who commented on my last post. I appreciate your input.
That post has been deleted because I think I dwell on the negative too much sometimes.
So something positive. I cleaned the Focus last night and my father-in-law helped me to finally get my license plate onto the front bumper. (MI cars are not made for front bumpers, which are required in OH)
I know, not extremely exciting, but it is nice to have a shiny clean exterior sometimes!
