Car’s in the shop & on Friday I went ahead and rented a car. The insurance company pays a certain portion and the remainder sounds cheap, but once you get to Enterprise and pay for the insurance, etc. it gets expensive.
We are to get snow / freezing rain / who knows how much for sure….so I decided to run around like crazy on Friday and Saturday and return the car on Saturday afternoon prior to that, rather than pay for it any longer…. I would not want to drive it in bad weather anyway! :) And surely by Tuesday or so, my car would be fixed. ( If you missed this…the mouse that ate my car and budget story is HERE )
Everywhere that I went, out of force of habit, I’d come out looking for my gray Subaru Legacy and then remind myself that I had a red Toyota rental to find :) Anyway, long story short, I’d arranged for my middle son to help lug some heavier things down to the antique mall with me, and then after that ( my last need for the car ) I’d return it to Enterprise. I went online to see if they were open until 5:00 or 6:00…and they close at NOON on Saturday. There went my best laid plans on saving money :( My son was quite surprised that they closed that early on a Saturday as well.
Meanwhile between snow on the way and Superbowl Sunday tomorrow, the grocery store was like a madhouse.
DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH TOILET PAPER AND MILK TO SURVIVE? :)
Back in the day, Johnny Carson once caused a toilet paper shortage across America.
My MOM fell for this and to this day she has enough toilet paper stocked to survive a nuclear holocaust :)
There are MANY links to follow if you Google this but I’ll just show this one, if you are young and don’t remember it or are unaware of it. I was in high school at the time….10th grade.
He caused a toilet paper shortage across America with a joke :)
I am stocked up on toilet paper for the next round of snow along with my milk and eggs, etc. :)
So do any of you remember this? :) How funny :)
Aside from Johnny Carson etc. it was a pleasant surprise today to be featured over at Brenda’s Cozy Little House along with some other bloggers. What an honor. Brenda’s post is HERE.
