Miss had placed an order for boneless leg of lamb before she decided to go help the kids move in Easter weekend, so we had it Sunday after my remote D+D session instead.

Miss's car should be in line to be substantially if not completely paid off today. For a while I was getting daily or weekly emails from Chirp, which basically pushes daily deals on audiobooks the way Bookbub promotes bargain-bin deals on e-books.
