My week has been hectic once again. Never a dull moment, that’s for sure.
Writing – My first muse is still editing my second billionaire book. Still undecided about a title; hero is too controlling, loves the heroine, doesn’t like the ending. Parts of me agree, but aren’t billionaires controlling as it is?
Started the third series and am anxious since the characters are talking to me.
Accident Car saga – The insurance adjuster said the vehicle was in excellent shape but because it’s over 10 years old, they totaled it. They gave us an unexpected check for it. And on top of that, they asked for the repair bills which I was able to provide for them. We replaced major organs in that car this year and when reviewed, we got additional money. Now, we have the incentive to look at preowned cars.
Texans are the nicest people ever, who go out of their way to help you. But, they are the worst drivers. I’ve lived in four states and driven through 49 of them. And I’ve even driven in Canada and Mexico. My point is that it doesn’t pay to buy a new car here in Texas. It will get dinged, rear ended and you name it.
We’ve test driven one car on our list so far. It’s a 2012 model and feels exactly like the 2006 model we had. Kind of like your favorite pair of old shoes. We made an appointment to test drive a 2016 in Plano (66 miles from our house) only to learn that it had been pulled from the schedule minutes after we arrived at the dealership. They found something wrong with it. Needless to say, it was a wasted trip. We will reschedule it but asked that the dealer send the fixed car to the dealership in a city that’s closer to us. We are not fans of the George Bush Turnpike at 5 pm on a Friday night…
Schedules and routines are being accommodated. It’s hard when you’re used to having a car of your own and now you have to share. But we’re coping with seeing more of each other than we used to!
Texas Husky Rescue – still no match 🙁
