When I found out Friday that my car wouldn't be ready again(!) and I'd be waiting until at least today, maybe longer, I sunk into a pit of despair. Gran Dorse kept trying to entice me off the ledge:
GD: "It's sunny and warm - you can go running outside!"
me: "don't want to"
GD: " I made dark chocolate brownies"
me: " grrr"
GD: "I can see if we have enough frequent flyer points for E to visit for the weekend"
As it turned out, E was too busy and important to fly out Saturday even if GD did have enough points, so she lent me her snappy red vehicle and I made it back. GD & Boba will drive the friggin' Civic back if they ever manage to track down all the unique gaskets, sprockets and hoozits required to make a Honda run.
While it has been lovely to see E, it has been less-than-lovely to deal with 3 weeks of neglected misc - specifically taxes. Bad news from my accountant - I owe more than he estimated. great.
So I am digging change out of GD's car cushions hoping to scrape together enough to keep myself out of debtor's prison.
On the plus side, my tulips are starting to sprout : )
