And Another Update
My Car is Ready! It was ready on Friday, but the body shop lost our phone number. So they called the insurance adjuster who neither called them back nor called us until today. I am really starting to hate this insurance company. This dude is entirely worthless. Nonetheless, hopefully, I will have my precious Civic back tomorrow. Which is delightful because I have been driving my in-laws Mercury Mountaineer. Which used to be our Mountaineer. It's a fine vehicle, don't get me wrong, and I made my peace with driving it on vacation last year. I can drive it fine. But in some ways I do still drive like I drive a Honda Civic. Like trying to cut in and out of traffic (oops). Or parking. I'm breaking my cardinal rule of "If you can't park it, don't drive it". I've done fine parking it, but there have definitely been some Nervous Tummy (thanks Tessie) moments when I realized that I was going to have park in a parking deck or some other small car parking area. And I have been parking on the other side of my office parking lot because I can just pull into the parking spot and then back out at the end of the day and there's nothing behind it. So I'm delighted that all of that can end and I can go back to my small car ways and parking where I like to park.
