It's been a good news/bad news day.
I'll start with the bad news. When I left work yesterday evening I got to my car and noticed someone had hit the drivers front door. There was a huge dent in it and I'll confess to it --- I said the word FUCK - out loud. My car is kind of my baby. I picked it out myself, paid for it myself and I've always been very careful driving it. It's a 2001 Chevy Cavalier, burgundy in colour and I only have 68,000 miles on it. I looked around for a note from whoever it was that hit it but there was no such note.
When I got to work this morning I sent out an office wide email asking that if someone hit my car (knowing damn well someone did but I was trying to be diplomatic) could they please get in touch with me. I didn't think anyone would - and they didn't. But I hope they have a hell of a guilty conscience. I called my insurance broker and told her what happened and she wanted me to get an estimate to see if it could be repaired for under $500.00 - the cost of the deductible. So I went at lunch and got one. We are talking an estimate of $1,600. So I guess I'll be paying out $500. Again I will say - FUCK! I'm going to be working overtime on Sunday and getting double time for the day but now it will be all going towards my car - and then some. The hardest part is knowing that probably someone I work with did this and didn't have the guts to come forward.
But the day started out good. Ames offered to give the blog an update. She started last night and since we are on different time zones, I didn't get a chance to see it until this morning. Doesn't it look kewl?? She's still working on it some. She actually thinks that kind of thing is interesting - wow!
I still had the old original Blogger set-up and now I'm awed at how easy it is to do stuff in this new fangled template. I added a whole bunch more links to blogs at the side because instead of working in the template and working with HMTL - which always terrifies me - adding a new link is easy as pie.
And the day ended very good too. It was a very good mail day :) First off - a mystery package from Aztec Lady arrived - and much thanks to you.
I also received a gift certificate that I won at Lea 's blog - thank you too.
And not one - but two books I ordered from Amazon got here too! And a good thing it is because I won't be ordering from Amazon for a while now - thanks to deductibles!!
And now - I'm going to practice trying a different font and colour because I haven't been able to do so in ever so long.
