James says hello and happy Friday!
He is quite excited. We have a fun doggie afternoon planned – I’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 won’t exactly help sell the place, so we’re off to find a pup-friendly place to hang out. (Here’s to hoping we close on our new home before we get kicked out of this place…)
Speaking of buying and selling, I spent the morning hanging out at the Ford dealership, helping DadHTP buy a car. He’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 – 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, Dad’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 apartment…
