Things have worked out fairly well in regards to our car situation. Insurance covered the tow and the parts cost about $200.
That’s still a lot of money for my family but it could be much, much worse. I get paid on Friday and will be able to take care of it then.
The only downside to this was that I have to be physically present, with the keys, when the tow truck arrives. That meant I had to walk to Dr. Pattie’s office.
As I’m getting ready to leave, the kids decide that they desperately want to go with me. We tried to discourage them, because I don’t like them being outside where we live.
Lizze and I decided that we would all walk to meet the tow truck. It’s really nice out and where we had to go was sorta side stepping the really bad parts.
Anyway, it’s only one mile each way and that’s no big deal. So that’s what we did.
At the moment, we’re just waiting for the tow truck to arrive and figure out how we’re going to hook the car up. It’s in a weird position and because the ignition is physically locked up, we can’t put the car in gear.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
