Apparently last month's Appliance Armageddon at our house was merely a prelude to bigger and better broken.
Today it was my car. Take a gander. What? It looks fine to you? Look how close the fender is to the back tire. We're barely skimming the ground.
I took it to the dealer, and came home with a rental. "We don't recommend driving it without airbags, and we don't have the fix-it part in stock." The good news is that the part should be in tomorrow, and will be installed to the tune of 1/4 thousand dollars. yeah. I know. It's a $30 part. And we don't know if this will actually fix it or not.
In the meantime, I am researching new cars, one of my least favorite things to do. But someone's got to do it eventually, and this car is 10 years old...
On a happier note, I remembered to take a picture of this card yesterday. I like the way it turned out, even though the red star barely shows. The gold makes it stand out a bit more.
I guess that's it. No sewing today, I spent the morning getting this car looked at and the afternoon having a new windshield installed in the van. Joy, joy, count it all joy.
Twirly Balls is finally done!
