Not in the Virtual Mood

I apologize to all my faithful readers.......ha whatever. I haven't been in much of a mood to post lately due to my inevitable stress and irritability brought on by yet another bout of bad luck. We all know I was super excited to pick up Perla, my new Vivid Blue Honda Fit.

Wednesday, Alex and I took half a day off of work and drove to San Antonio in the early afternoon to pick her up from Gunn Honda. We got her, paid for her, and were on our way back to Austin, knowing that we were going to run into to Austin's 5pm rushhour traffic. We get to Austin with no problems, then as I'm crossing the bridge over the Colorado River the Range Rover behind me decides to plow into my brand new car going about 10-15 mph. I thought I was in a dream. Just typing it again is making me feel sick to my stomach and mad all over again.

Making a long story short.......I cried my eyes out againa for probably the 4th time in two weeks and had to resort to telling family and loved ones more about my bad news. Alex has been a dream and has handled EVERYTHING for me. He is il mio knight in shining armor. He's dealt with the insurance companies, body shop, and UT freshman that hit me.

The freshman who hit me is from Forth Worth and seems to come from money as him and his dad are preferring to pay for all damages and my rental car out of pocket. He's been extremely cooperative which is a blessing.

Since it's a BRAND NEW car they're going to completely replace all damaged parts. The parts are supposed to arrive in the body shop on Tuesday.......I pray it's quick and it's done RIGHT. They are assuring me that she'll be as good as new when I pick her up finally.

I can only hope that's true........

It should look good, a rear end is cosmetic in the end. Some one did the same to mom's car, and it's spotless now!

What's going on? All these events!

Let's go out for a beer to vent them out, wanna? :) Hang in there!
