I think I have found a car that I can somewhat afford. My brother bought his wife a VW Passat and she hates it. She is so use to driving a big gas sucking boat that she just can't get use to the little car. He offered to sell it to me for what they owe on it. Sure, my payments would be about $240 a month, but the car is in excellent shape and it's a good and dependable car. I am driving the smashed car, but it makes me a nervous wreck driving it. I can literally stick my thumb into the gaps in the door, where before it closed up tight to the body of the car. My mechanic came to look at it yetserday and he said its still a sound car, but just the notion that its crushed is enough to bother me. Plus, it will never pass inspection now.
My body is coming around back to a state of normal. My muscles still ache and my shoulder is still sore, but I can get up and move around a bit more than I could a few days ago. I could probably manage doing dishes now and maybe some laundry ( if I have help moving the basket and folding the big stuff), but I think I'll pawn vacuuming off to one of the able bodied people who call this place home. I have a bunch of fabric that I need to dye black for halloween. I think I might need help doing that too. The kids have been really helpful all week. My daughter came home from school on tuesday and vacuumed to the whole house without being asked. But having two dogs and two cats, it needs to be done again.
