Ahh! Seriously, a whole week gone by and I’ve only blogged once?
Obviously there is something wrong with this picture.
Guys, I’ve had one pretty stinky week.
As you know a couple weeks ago, February 28th to be exact, our car was totaled.
If you aren’t familiar with this huge travesty, literally -my mind and emotions have been running in all kinds of directions since, you can read these blog posts.. one & two & three and they will fill you in.
Okay, so we made it through this week of us both having school and work, well Brand didn’t go to class because we literally couldn’t make that work, but everything else was made possible all thanks our family!
They picked me up from school,
took me around to look for khaki that I need for my volunteer event this weekend, took me to work, and got me a hair cut.
Moffered to take me down to school and took us to pick up the “rental” car.
(Thanks Uncle M and Aunt S!)
And all the while everyone keep saying, “don’t worry about it, you’ll find a car, and you aren’t putting us out.”
I’m so grateful for them!
Another tid bit about this week, so our car that is newer/the one that didn’t get totaled, had a little issue this week.
Brand and I were driving around the world, okay city – I’ve been a little dramatic lately with this whole situation, and we put our car in drive and heard this big knocking noise.
I look at Brand and say, “What the crap? Is that our transmission going bad?”
So, long story short he looks in the warranty manual and sees that we are 150 miles away from having our car be “out of warranty” so we schedule an appointment to take it to the dealer so they can check and see if it is our transmission.
And because we were only 150 miles away from being out of warranty that meant for the rest of the week we couldn’t drive it, so now we were down to zero cars!
And that’s where Uncle Mark and Aunt Stacy so sweetly let us barrow their car.
So now we are back to one.
We’ve looked at a couple cars and have taken them to our mechanic so he can check them out, but none of them have worked out.
So, we keep on plugging away.
I’m still the number one searcher on Craigslist (or so I think) and I’m pretty sure we’ve called about every car listed in the Honda section.
But for now I’m just grateful for our family members who have helped us so much!
We couldn’t get anything done these past few weeks without you!
I’m also grateful for all your support and prayers!
I haven’t been good at responding to comments this week, just because of everything that is going on, but I promise I will try and respond this weekend! (:
Hope you all had a good week and that you have a better weekend!
