James says hello and happy Friday!
He is quite excited. We have a fun doggie afternoon planned â€“ Iâ€™ve got to clear out of the apartment because my landlord is showing it to not one, not two, but four possible tenants this afternoon. I have a feeling my barking poochies wonâ€™t exactly help sell the place, so weâ€™re off to find a pup-friendly place to hang out. (Hereâ€™s to hoping we close on our new home before we get kicked out of this placeâ€¦)
Speaking of buying and selling, I spent the morning hanging out at the Ford dealership, helping DadHTP buy a car. Heâ€™s officially moved to Charlotte from California and is giving up the RV lifestyle, so he needs a car and apartment of his own. Car is first on the list. Apartment should be resolved later this month.
My dad used to be a salesman and can haggle with the best of them â€“ he told me all these things to say when the salesman was around and used eye contact to indicate I should start packing up my purse at key moments. I knew we were going to be there for a LONG TIME so I brought food.
After three hours of intense haggling, Dadâ€™s got a brand new set of wheels. Whew. I never haggled like that. Too much confrontation!!!
Lunch #2 was leftover Thai, pumped up with extra steamed broccoli and beans.
I should probably tidy up the apartmentâ€¦
