The driver of the car that sideswiped my car on New Year's Eve, turned out to be a17-year-old girl who had never had an accident before. I think my chasing her down to get her license plate probably scared her to pieces. Thinking back on it, I admit it was a really dumb thing to do. The policeman that responded to my call told me the same thing. (ahem!) What was really amazing about the whole thing is that she got away and headed straight home, where her mother convinced her to turn herself in!! Which she did. Not only that but she admitted her responsibility, so she got a ticket, but in spite of that her insurance company paid the total bill for the repair of my car!! It sort of restored my belief that most people are good people!
The Big Guy arrived here in mid-January and the movers arrived a couple of days later. And of course, at that point we began to realize that we had way too much stuff for this house. The new house was only about 200 sq. ft. smaller that the Austin house, but it has become pretty clear that the "missing" 200 sq. ft. must have all been storage space!!
Over the last several months we have encountered some repairs required, some replacements required, some things that cost a little bit, and some things that cost a lot! We have donated a very large amount of our stuff to the local Care Center Thrift Shop, but we are still not finished getting everything unpacked and put away. I know it will happen eventually....but it is a sloooooooow process.
Nevertheless, despite the fact that the move hasn't exactly been a smooth one, we are still living in Central Florida which is something I have wanted for over 50 years! It took a lot of time, a lot of effort, a lot of indecision, a lot choices, and a lot of convincing, but the bottom line is after all this time, "My Wish Came True!"
I never would have believed it!
