He has Insurance!

The guy that totaled my car has insurance! Thank Goodness! So much stress and weight off my shoulders! I feel like I can breath again. I will update this post once I know a bit more- Once I have talked with my insurance guy in the morning. This is so wonderful I am just giddy! I can't wait for morning to come!

If you are waiting on a package from me...

Please be patient with me. I have to walk about 2 miles to the Fed-Ex store or to the bank so anything I take has to be able to fit in the stroller. Also I can only go if Nora is cooperating with me which some days just doesn't happen. I will be trying to get everything in the mail by the end of the week at the latest.

I should not be allowed vehicles...I really shouldn't

An Ode to my abilities to destroy vehicles.

When I was younger it was always a dream
to be in possession of free flowing wheels
to escape to parts unknown
with a simple press of the accelerator.

I took the driving course, I passed the test
I was handed the keys to a vintage 1970 VW Bug.
"Now drive safe, the car has made it this long
Lets see if it can last a few more drivers"
My parents cautioned.

The bug "Morty" and I were fast friends
The town was ours for the taking.
How I love that car.
It actually still runs.

Then I traded "up" to a newer car.
I got my first speeding ticket with it and my first accident
It was traded in for a newer more reliable car...with cruise control.
I still remembered "Morty".

I found another vintage bug to be my new mechanical baby.
It died a painful death in September of 2007.
Windows shot out by local hoodlums and then
was used as a bumper for a 1967 Chevy pickup.

Then my oh so loving and trusting mom
lets me borrow to buy her beloved Intrepid.
Another solid stable car that has been through thick an thin
And I manage to blow up the engine.

And now my Sunfire. My beloved Sunfire.
Declared officially dead 03/04/08.
Fatally wounded 03/01/08.
Good bye faithful car.
I think I need a horse!
