Car saga, the next episode
So, we got up today, picked up SD, went to the finance company to get the lien release, called the tow company and decided to go there Monday, went to the dealership, test drove the car back to our house, had our retired used car dealer neighbor look it over, went back, negotiated and bought the car. We pick it up Monday.
During all this, SD was very confused, got names wrong, bad directions, couldnt remember things. DH said, "Your'e a bubble off!". She drove the car from the dealership to our house, about 5 blocks, but it was alarming.
At one point, we thought we'd be taking possession today and her eyes lit up. I had been staying low key all day but said, "If we get it today, Dad or I am driving it to our house and parking it in the driveway until you get insurance". Hate shone out of her eyes but DH agreed with me. I know her, she can talk a good game about getting insurance but will put it off forever, meanwhile driving all over in her crazy way. I also had it put in her name. DH was surprised but I told him I didn't want her driving around in a vehicle that's titled to us. I also privately told him I wouldn't be riding with her again.
I insisted that I'm going to see Mom today, we will be later than usual but I want DH and SD to realize my life is going on as usual regardless of her drama. He's taking her home now, then we will go to Mom's. Then wine time.....
