Still no news

We still have not heard anything back about our car.

It seems that I have spent my entire day on the phone.

I called the insurance company and submitted my claim. Well actually I called them and then had to wait 2 hours for them to call me back. We have to wait 2 weeks and if we have not heard anything after the 2 weeks then they will pay out on the claim. We are also eligible for a rental car. I am so relieved about that. So tomorrow, we will go and get the rental. It looks like maybe B and I can go somewhere for our Anniversary after all.

I called the mechanic. He is still looking for an engine for the icky car. We don't know if it would be better just to junk the car and buy another one or wait for this one to get fixed. Either way we cannot afford it. B wants to get another motorcycle and I really don't like that idea.

I called the scrapbook store about the sewing machine. Since I don't have a receipt they will not take it back. Even if the machine is defective they will not take it back after 30 days and without a receipt. They would not give me a number for the company so I have to do some searching online myself. I am not surprised. This store is very strict about things. I usually have a love/hate relationship with the owners. Right now? I don't know how I feel.

I called the landlord to submit a work order to fix our fence. The party animals next door like to sit on the fence and I knew that it would eventually break and of course, it did. Hopefully it will get fixed this week.

I spoke with my mother-in-law. I think she is more upset about our car being stolen than we are. Well maybe not but she really is upset. I had a nice talk with her.

I called my sister-in-law to wish her a happy birthday. She was not home.


  1. So sorry about the car Stef, but maybe you will get an even better car! I hope so at least.
    How are you on the scrapbooking challenge? I have not stopped by in a while, so I am behind. Are you doing good with it?
    And definitely, I would contact the company directly about the sewing machine. Maybe they will give you something free as a consolation for the loss. OR if they have another model that you like, perhaps you can move up to the next level machine for no extra money? Cruise around the website and see what is out there. I know that small independent stores do not like to take a loss, perhaps the company would not take it back from them if it's been very long - but they might take it back from you, as the consumer. It's worth a try!

  2. I wish you guys could just get a break! Life isn't fair, that's for sure. My prayers are with you. How's the job and scrapping going? I found a local group that meets once a month to scrap. Let me know if you're interested. Hang in there girl!

  3. you should definitely contact the company about the sewing machine....let them know how dissatisfied you are.

    About your car, that is a TOTAL bummer. Thank God you have good insurance. Maybe you'll be picking out a new ride in a few weeks.

    Focus on the fun: anniversary date coming up!!
