Have you missed me today? I promise, I haven’t forgotten about you. If anything, today’s lack of posts will just remind you that I’m a real person, with a real life and real issues.
No excuses, just an explanation. Monday I took our family van into the shop for what I thought would be a routine system check. After 3 hours in a waiting room with 2 kids, I learn that not only did I have a nail in one tire, the torc something-or-other had to be replaced and some equally weird sounding system was out of whack (don’t I inspire you with my automotive know how?).
I ended up having to leave the van there overnight, which left me stranded at home without a vehicle (which is probably why I found so many deals yesterday!). Of course, a part still hadn’t come in as of yesterday and while they were supposed to pay for a rental car, there was some miscommunication and we were never contacted by the rental company.
Long story short, we finally got our van back today, so I had to do all the running around I’d been putting off for the past two days. The good news is that because of a mess-up by the Honda dealer in FL, the two-thousand dollar issue was covered under warranty, so we were “only” left to pay for the tire, plus Crest Honda offered us two free oil changes because of the extra time it took. I didn’t even have to use my “Ask” method 😉
So, now you know all about me (see, we’re more alike than you’d imagined, right?); why don’t you tell me what your week has been like! Any deals you’ve noticed? Any fun holiday events you’ve found? Any crazy stories you just need to get off your chest?
To make it up to you, I have a great giveaway starting tomorrow, so be sure to check back in the morning for a fun holiday treat! Thanks for sticking around…
