Monday, Monday...

Okay, so it was a productive day.  Michael stayed home from school due to bad allergies and so I got to sleep in a little bit.  A nice treat, to be sure. I stayed in my jammies for a good portion of the day and again, it was a nice treat.

I did a LOT of writing today for NaNoWriMo - a total of 7,000 words today which gives me a total of 25,000 words.  I am feeling pretty dang good about it.  While I want nothing more than to edit what I've got, I am refraining and waiting until the very end - which is what they recommend.

Frank hit a snag in his quest for a van.  We found the perfect van; it had everything that he wanted included low mileage.  the price was a little high but we know a guy who knows the owner and we were pretty much guaranteed that the seller would work with us.  

Not so much.

After WEEKS of phone tag, Frank finally met with the seller.  This van has been for sale for 18 MONTHS.  I kid you not.  He is asking almost $2,000 MORE than the Kelly Blue Book value and so when Frank made his offer, which was in between the blue book value and his request, the guy turned him down.  Can I just say GREEDY???  I mean, it must be nice to NOT need the money to the point that you'd rather let this vehicle sit and ROT rather than sell it.  Needless to say my husband is NOT a happy camper right now and to be honest, neither am I.  I was really looking forward to getting my car back.  

Bummer.

Another week, another...well, sucky week.  I'll have to see who I can bum a ride from tomorrow.  

Good times...

Sorry to hear about the van! Gee, almost makes you just wanna get a bike, doesn't it?

Awesome NaNoWriMo stats! I haven't got much done on mine yet, a page or so of handwritten notes, (laundry day yesterday and then when I got home DS hogged the computer--my hand starts to hurt after a few minutes of longhand) but I'm getting started!

That's great on the amount you've written. I tried signing up for that twice and it never worked out for me. My commitment (lack of) or my kids throw me off. Keep up typing and creating - you rock.

Why do people insist on MORE than the Kelley Blue Book - even after it's been sitting there for 18 Months?? Totally greedy. Sorry it didn't work out and you're sill without wheels. Hope your hubby finds the perfect van soon! And hope your little one is feeling better! :)
