Last month was pretty terrible.
I was hit head on by a drunk driver, my car was totaled and I didn’t have a car for over a month while insurance sorted things out. If this sounds familiar, it’s because this is the second time this year that I have been hit head on. Both times my car was totaled. The actual wrecks bother me less than the insurance, paperwork, phone calls and endless waiting. It’s the pitts.
On top of the mess with the accident, my grandmother has been put in Hospice care, and work is particularly difficult right now. I’m trying to keep my chin up, but I can’t deny that I’m having a hard time right now.
During the time I have been away from this site, I witnessed the Great American Solar Eclipse at 99.98% totality, listed my spare bedroom on Airbnb and have had 3 guests, painted the trim on one side of my cottage, saw a real beach in the middle of the mountains, bought an adorable halloween costume for my dog, and cleaned out my closet. My life may be in shambles, but I have stayed busy! I will try to get caught up on posts this month.
So here’s the update on my wish list:
- Custom Ring – This ended up a total bust. Jeweler couldn’t follow directions and botched the whole thing. I threw up when I saw the results knowing I was on the hook to pay for it. Very upsetting. I am going to have to take it somewhere else and have it melted down all over again.
- New Computer – I FINALLY DID IT! After not having a personal computer for over a year, I bought a new MacBook. I have been doing what I can from my old iPad mini, but I just needed the full functionality of a computer.
- Hunter Shearling Soles for my wellies
- Headache Hat – This is a new discovery and as someone who frequently suffers from migraines, this looks AMAZING.
