Curveballs

So y'all know how The Universe likes keep things balanced, right?!

And you also know just how good The Universe has been to me lately? ... what with my trying to coordinate the sale and purchase of my house and new condo?

Plus schedule contractors, find supplies, schedule appraisers, coordinate move dates, blah, blah, blahdey-blah?

I mean, really ... the list has been ENDLESS with regard to everything I've needed to have go JUST SO.

And, amazingly, it HAS. I have had phenomenal luck lately. Even taking into account the minor glitches along the way (see: "GDO Remote" Saga. And "Get the F Outta My Condo, Mr Condo Seller" Saga)

And, granted, I have had to work my ASS off to keep things running as smoothly as possible and to really take charge and stay on the ball to make sure what needed to get done, got done.

But really .... even with all my hard work, and all the good wishes of friends and family that have been floating out there lately, I have undeniably been phenomenally lucky as well. No doubt about it.

Which brings us back to my "So y'all know how The Universe likes to keep things balanced, right?!"

Uh yeah.

The house/condo deal closed officially Friday at 5pm. Not less than an hour later .........................


THANKFULLY no-one was injured. Though the other driver is uninsured. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.


Y'all, my baby. :( This is one car that has not just been a mode of transportation. I am emotionally attached to it. And the insurance company is saying that they will probably total it*.

Which just makes me sad, sad, sad.

Not to mention financially screwed. And to think just Friday afternoon I called for the payoff on it. (doesn't that just suck?)

Mr. Universe, I'd like to think that makes us even now. Pretty please? With cherries on top???


*WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

I sorry, Sweetie. =(

I'm sending you happy car mojo and I'm sure the powers that be have done their thing for now. You're in for some smooth sailing from here on out. I KNOW it!

And this is just another reason why your move is a blessing. I can't think of a stop-sign-less intersection in that new part of town!

oh man, kat, that is terrible. wow, i can't sort this out...all that "universe provideth and then taketh something away" stuff. i am so sorry.

lol..Universe does not taketh away...we do...so I am guessing you (like me) somewhere in the back of your mind were thinking the universe cannot be so giving something is going to go wrong or maybe you were thinking I don't deserve to have everything go so smoothly so the universe said "OKAY, IF YOU SAY SO." I am glad everyone is okay...what happened????

That's what I said, goodgirl. I have a nasty bruise now.

well, if that's true, Goodgirl and D, then I'm REALLY screwed. Because I keep remembering how the last car accident I was in years ago was immediately followed by another one just two weeks later. GAHHHHHHHH! :)

ah man, I'm sorry dear! I hope you made a trip to a chiropractor to make sure that everything is still in place. The earlier you go the better.
