The Final Chapter

I have been in a funk. Yes, I admit it. Since I was told how much it was going to cost to fix that silly car, I sank into a deep depression. Food lost its flavor. All color leeched out of everything around me. Breathing was becoming too much of a chore to bother with. I mean really... I am a girl, its not my JOB to think about cars and how to fix them. Its all overwhelming for my pink tinged psyche. So I pouted. Its what I do.

However, I knew that I was not going to get out of the funk until I did something about the car. So I put an ad in the newspaper yesterday, selling it AS IS, hoping that someone would take it off my hands and I wouldn't have to worry about it anymore. A long shot to be sure, but what else was there to do.

Lo and behold, this morning at 7:00 a.m., my phone rang. Someone saw the ad (which was a surprise since it wasn't supposed to post until tomorrow). They asked if they could come look at it. I told them I would drive it to work and they could come there to see it. They did. They liked it. They handed me a check for what I was asking for it. I was waving enthusiastically as they drove it away.

ITS GONE ITS GONE HALLELUJAH!

I was going to have to cancel my Scotland trip but now its back on! WOOO HOOO!
