One of those days.

Maybe it is because it is Friday the 13th, or maybe it is all this heat and humidity we have been having here but these last two days have been a roller coaster ride.

Most already know that D and I are moving to San Francisco here in just over a week. With that being said these past few weeks have been filled with packing, cleaning, and driving all over the state to see friends and family before we leave. One thing we decided about moving to San Francisco was that we would get rid of our cars. D's was in worse shape than mine so we decided to sell his first. We got a ton of hits on it and the car was about a day away from a sale going through.... and then it died. Perfect timing, no?? We lowered the price drastically in order to "just get rid of it" and we ended up selling it the next day.

About 5 days ago I finally put my car on the market. She was my first car and I have had her for about six years now. She has been through a lot but she always manages to make it through. Like D's car, mine also had a ton of hits on it. We got offered almost the full amount we were asking for it and we were thrilled. Last night we drove back across the state to go visit a friend, do a cake tasting, and get the title from my parents so I could sell it today. About three miles from our place at 11:30pm my car died.. Perfect timing ,no?? We got her towed back here and now she sits, waiting to get hauled back to my parents house to they can figure out what is wrong with her and then sell her. Needless to say I had to call the buyer up and explain what had happened with pretty much ended that sale.

It was not a good day..............

yet another thing to go wrong yesterday was the cake tasting. Well, not the cake tasting itself but the drive there. The place we were going to had previously been operated out of the owners house and because of that all of the directories I looked at to get the address still had her house address listed as the business site. We got all the way over there and fortunately enough, D had his iphone on him so we were able to look up her phone number, get the real address and finally make it to our appointment 25minutes late.

At least the cake was amazing and we ended up booking her on the spot! At least one thing good came out of that day.

Hopefully you all had better day than we did!!

Sorry about your car!

You are so lucky to be moving to SF. It's one of my favorite places in the universe.
