How many times have you ever heard anyone say "This was a Great Monday?"
Answer: Not Many. In fact, maybe not ever.
But for us today it was a hugely Great Monday. Everything clicked. Everything worked. We Love It When A Monday Works!
We accomplished so much stuff today that it's hard to know where to begin. So, let's begin at the beginning and work our way through this Awesome Day.
(Disclaimer: We arrived back around noon last Thursday. All the normal re-entry chores were done by "close of business" Friday.)
Okie, dokie...here we go...
We beat feet outta our house shortly after 7:30 AM. We delivered "Seren" our 1995 Suzuki Sidekick Garage Queen to Sears for her annual checkup. It's kinda like getting your HDL/LDL's checked, only different.
Then we waited at home until CableOne came and connected us back up to the internet. They said they would be here "sometime between 8 AM and NOON." Well, they pushed their envelope and showed up in the 11-ish range.
Meanwhile, we both occupied ourselves with productive tasks while waiting. You don't need to know the details of our tasks, Suffice to say they were very productive. We were actually thankful The Cable Guy was late in his window.
After The Cable Guy verified we were Feng Shui, we headed back to Sears to pick up Seren. The Sears Guy Mike told us the Bad News: "There's NOTHING WRONG with your vehicle!"
WHAT? We were fully prepared to pay your typical $500 to fix whatever would be wrong with Clair's Garage Queen. You simply have to assume a re-entry cost of $500 per vehicle. It goes with the turf. But today we copped a break. No way, no how could we pay Sears any money. They refused it. They said Seren was in perfect condition through and through.
How good is is that? VERY GOOD!
After our Sears visit, Clair and I each went our own ways in our own vehicles. I drove the 1984 vintage Nissan. Clair drove the 1995 Garage Queen.
Clair went out and did her thing today and I did as well. We both gave each other glowing reviews of our Happy Monday. Trust us, it's not every Monday that was Good as This Monday!
I haven't yet heard of all the details of Clair's Happy Monday but I am going to list my own Monday Successes. Here they are:
