What a week!

Hurricane Sandy Progress Lego
So this past week has been insane.
 
Let's start with saying it was HOT HOT HOT!
 
Good news first!
I managed to pick up my first Lego set in ages as it was 50% off at Walmart, the box was opened and the stickers and one instruction book was missing, but overall worth it. It was set #76003 Superman: Battle of Smallville. It is hard to pass up a Lego set that is discounted so much! I also picked up one of the Series 10 Minifigs for $1 on clearance. It was the last one they had and I got a nice baseball player. I almost forgot the satisfying feel of Lego as they snapped together.
 
Atlus just released a game that we also decided to pick up using some Amazon credit that we have, Shin Megami Tensei IV. I played a little bit of it and the second tutorial/lesson killed me. They said it would be hard and they were NOT kidding. Of course this got Aleks and myself a $30 eShop credit and we can't figure out what game to put that towards! If anyone has opinions I would love to hear them.
 
Earthbound. Just Earthbound.
 
We also had two lovely volunteer groups at our house this past week tearing things out and helping to remove parts of the condemned house. It was hard to watch, and I didn't know there was still so much stuff left. The house no longer has floors and a lot of the insulation is gone. The good news is that it was built before they started using asbestos. If it had that removing the house would cost so much more. We have made progress with getting the permits for it (and for our house). The process is more complicated because the lots are technically too small for the houses by modern codes.
 
You can see all of the new images right here.
 
That is where the good news ends. Just when we started to get progress... our car broke down. The thermostat and its housing and cables pretty much exploded. This delay has cost us more money (that we don't have) and more time. The irony here is that we had just purchased an air conditioner for Aleks' grandfather and we were taking it home. To get ourselves and the air conditioner the three miles back home it cost us about $40. Not to mention the cost of fixing the car. Here is a picture of our car on the flatbed!

Shantae just came out on the eShop. Haven't gotten it yet, but heard it's good.

I've been curious about that one I've heard a lot of good things about it.
