Driving home on Saturday night from the munch - in the dark - in the snow - I noticed that on the shift console - the light for "drive" was lit up BUT so was the light for "neutral". My heart pounded. Something was wrong - and I have to drive to Montreal on Wednesday - what to do what to do???
Yesterday morning at the crack of dawn (nearly) I was at the garage with the car - dropped it off and came home.... and started coming up with a Plan B to get myself and the presents and the food and my clothes to Montreal. I did laundry - but other than that I pretty much sat around wondering what I was gonna do.
The mechanic called. Good news and bad news. Good news they had patched up the problem (which wasn't / isn't my transmission) and it should be fine to drive to Montreal. Bad news - the part needed to fix the shift console would take 2 weeks minimum to get here. Good news it's all covered under my extended warranty (thank god for some good judgement 3 years ago)
So basically yesterday was a write off - didn't get much if anything done to get ready for Montreal.
Today I had a friend drop in for an early morning (8:00 am early) coffee and chat. At 10:30 I was out running around picking up last minute stuff I absolutely have to have for Christmas!!!
Now I am home - and suddenly realized I had not posted a blog today .. and dear god I don't want anyone to think I have dropped off the edge of the world (cheeky grin)
So while I eat my lunch I am writing this blog for you all............ then I am off to make a casserole and some finger foods for Christmas Eve supper......... then organise my clothes and pull out the suitcase and organise the presents into HUGE bags - get my meds and my make up (yeah can you believe it - I am now wearing make up!!) and make lists of food I can NOT forget........... cause tomorrow I am outta here !!! I am SO excited !!! Can you tell???
I am taking the laptop with me - and might - MIGHT - post some updates while I am away - or maybe just some pictures ,.......... I'll be back around the 27th / 28th.... god willing and no snow
Christmas giggle for today...........
