Lost Time

I haven't posted many handcrafted items lately, so I should probably explain myself.
The last few weeks have been consumed with buying another car.

I had to research online--meaning read reviews of different makes and options... Kelly Blue Book information, and consumer comments...

then make some choices concerning which car and where. I had to choose the type and model of car, find the location of the car, and figure out if that's the car I wanted. More research, this time Car Fax reports, and more consumer comments...

then more research to find a lender...
then go look at cars, choose a car, negotiate a price, fill out paperwork...
fill out more paperwork...
drive down to my insurance place for a visual inspection...
then have the dealer repair one of the power windows, drop off the vehicle, borrow another...

it has been insanely time-consuming.

Also, however, it is really a wonderful feeling of accomplishment. An "I did it!"
No man to help me--I was on my own. And I did a good job.
And it's exciting.
What I chose is irrelevant, but it was the right choice for ME!

I also started school again. Just one class, and a creative one, but I will blog about that in a couple weeks. It's pretty exciting too.

I just wanted to tell you why you haven't seen anything handmade in awhile. Don't worry...you will soon.

Wow, you put a lot of effort into that purchase. My last new car was purchased on accident & took 5 years to pay for - another accident... long story - I'll share after you share about sea world!

Hooray for you!!! I'm proud of your car-buying prowess! I bought my most recent car all on my own, and it was pretty darn intimidating. Way to go!!!

So what kind of car did you get? Don't keep us guessing.....we all want to know.

Buying a car is a lot of hard work but worth it. My car is one year old and it is just like the car before it that I allmost had for one year. I was in an accident and it was totaled ( not my fault) and I was happy with my car so I got another just like it, but in another color.

ha! I bought a Land Rover. It's not brand new, but a new one is on my dream list. I used to drive a Toyota Rav4, and I needed something with more punch. This one is perfect, all black, and very few miles. I love it.
