DO YA THINK IT'S A SIGN?

As I mentioned in my last post about getting a new vehicle, I am sure others have had second and third thoughts on it as they wait for their new vehicle to arrive. I have to admit to having those very thoughts. You now the ones...like...Well our cars are still in working order, Not having car payments is great, Do we REALLY need a new car, Maybe we should wait...and on and on and on.

Well given all this introspection, it's mind boggling when you get a sign that seems to assuage all your doubts. Let me explain.

Of the two vehicles, Chris' jeep is the worse off. It needs new breaks, and the whole directional is going south, it's actually dangerous to drive. So I told Chris that I didn't want him to take anymore chances driving the thing untill its time to bring it to the dealers. Mine is in better shape motor and break wise etc. So this week he took my car instead. He is on his way home thursday evening , his job is about 45 mins away. He is almost home when he calls me on the cell and says....

"YOUR CAR DIED!!"..."NO WAY!!" I say.."Nope, it just stopped and I had just enough time to get it to the side of the highway lol." "OH YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!" I say...he is laughing though and says he was almost home even. He is telling me where so I can drive to him with the jeep, but before he finishes he realizes I can't go anywhere because of Luc...(and no I can't bring him, he is unstable in a car and has to have 2 ppl in a vehicle or it could be dangerous) besides the fact I hate driving the jeep, I barely reach the damn peddles!!........(shut up Shan)

Anyway I tell Chris.."Hun, look in your wallet, you have a CAA card in there for a reason lol...I didn't get a membership for nothing." He says, "I DIDN'T EVEN THINK OF THAT"...so he calls , waits, gets towed to the closest garage, gets home, walks in....gives me a big hug and says.......

"You now what...I always had to deal with everything for myself or figure out what to do or just take care of everything the hard way before...I never had any help. Thats why I didn't even think of the CAA card. Just way to easy lol...I LOVE YOU"...

Funny how seemingly simple things to some, can be huge to others. ......ok...I digress..

Garage next day...Chris goes to see the guy. We both pray it isn't major..we DO NOT want to spend much on a car thats going to the dealer in the next few days. He tells him that but they both also think it must be something simple by what happened. GOOD NEWS, took then short time to figure out it was the distributor cap..PHEWWWWW... a few bucks and a tip..and the car is home!!.........but all we both could think and say was.....

TALK ABOUT A SIGN WE ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING!!!!!

We are both so sure and happy about our pending purchase with no doubts! Now we can't wait till they call us to say our NEW VEHICLE HAS ARRIVED!!!!...

A BIG thanks to the gods or the little angel on our shoulders for making it an inexpensive sign lol

I'm still so excited for you guys.

Just make no mistake about it, if you should have ANY trouble with your new car do not walk but RUN back to the dealer and raise hell.

Brand new cars have their issues as well, so don't cancel that CAA membership just yet!

I can't believe that I totally missed you telling me to shut up. Even after reading the post twice!

Guess you could say I'm used to being told to shut up. *blush*
