It has been a sad weekend in our family. My sister Elaine had to say goodbye to her best friend, her Cocker Spaniel, Cody. They have been inseparable for over 12 years. Poor Cody was very sick and she knew it was time and the right thing to do. That doesn't stop the pain for her or the sadness in the rest of the family. Please say a prayer for her if you think of it.
There has been no call from the garage/body shop about our car so that is not a good sign. I am so sure that the car is a total loss that I have begun looking online at the prices of used cars to replace it.
I finally uploaded some photos of the damage for my insurance company so I can share them with you. The wetness on the sidewalk is from the radiator.
The blue book value of our car is around $3,000. I think there is more than $3,000 worth of damage. *sigh* If I could do without a car, I would. But it's just not possible with our disabilities.
Yesterday I called the ShopRite store and talked to the manager. I told him what had happened. He was NOT happy. I gave him the time Joe was in there and he was going to look at the records and see who had a large void around that time. I hope I didn't make the cashier lose her job, but I don't want her doing that to someone else either. I said that to the manager too. I told him that I was considering going to another store to shop and he said he would understand if I did that but he hoped I would give them a chance to make it right. We'll see. If I had done something like that at the library when I was working, you'd better believe I would have been written up.
I called out for Chinese food for dinner tonight. We had steamed dumplings and chicken and broccoli over white rice. Very good and very filling. I'm stuffed.
Now I have to get off of here and get the bulletins printed for church tomorrow. It's also my turn to bring the treat for Fellowship Time so I'm going to bake something. I'm thinking about a dump cake. Nice and easy.
I hope you all have a great evening.
