Thankful Thursday #110: Becky’s back!

Posted on

Just a quick Thankful Thursday today.  So remember how I wrecked my car and got two tickets for expired tags and all the drama of it not being in my name so we couldn’t get it legal until we got the duplicate car title in the mail since the original was nowhere to be found? Well I’m happy to report that Becky was NOT totaled, the insurance paid for the repairs, she’s now fixed, we got the title in the mail and my Dad signed her over to me since I paid for it months ago, we paid the taxes and got a new tag, and I am just so relieved and happy to be driving a car that starts and has air conditioning again!  I was driving Baby until we could get all this done and wow, I do love that crazy messed up car but she has become even more unreliable (I know, how is that even possible, right?) and she stranded both me and Dennis on several occasions since we reclaimed her from Danielle, who had borrowed her until she could save enough to buy a new car.  I am totally OK with giving her back to Dani now – lol!

So a big YAY for a legal, working car!  Yaaaaay!!!!

About Veronica

I have a kitchen addiction and love to collect & share recipes. My passion is baking but I love to cook as well. The only thing I don't like to do in the kitchen is wash dishes, but my husband generally does them for me in exchange for his dinner.

  4. Oh my gosh, we must have the same mean fairy hanging around! I finally got the (car) love of my life – my slate blue Intrepid…named her Baby Blue and even bought a vanity tag (BBYBLU) cuz I was so tickled. I loved her because she drives insanely good and also because my mom and I went to Florida every year and we rented an Intrepid. Mom’s gone now, and BabyBlue is a sentimental piece of my heart as well as a dependable car. Well, in April, my hubby decided he’d drive my fuel-efficient car instead of his gas-guzzling truck (yea for the environment). And he wrecked her! I cried my heart out for days. I couldn’t even go outside and look at her! And, to make matters worse, because (and ONLY because) the air bags deployed, they totaled my car! Because the total to have her repaired is more than the percentage of what the car is worth, they totaled it. Even when we found ALL of the parts, including the flippin air bags (new) at half of that amount and said we’d have it repaired, so far they won’t budge…but neither will I. I’m still fighting for my little girl! So I know how you feel, and I, SOO glad you got yours back, safe and sound and all fixed up!
