Today SHOULD Be the Day!

Got the call last night that the vehicle we are purchasing should be ready by 5pm this afternoon at the dealership in Moose Jaw. Yesterday afternoon a friend prayed with me that our usual soap opera, the one that seems to turn every simple event in our lives into a stress test, would not come into play this time.

Hmmmmm.....not certain how that prayer will be answered. So far, the answer looks less than promising: my husband has meetings today in Weyburn and Estevan. Estevan meeting is now going to have to be over in time for my husband to drive from there to Moose Jaw and arrive at the licensing/insurance agency well before their 6pm closure to meet the present car owners, pay them,  sort out the new insurance payments and transfer our own current vehicle over to them as they are giving it to someone else. The timing will be a bit tight. If he is too late, not only has he added 90 minutes onto his driving time for nothing, there will not be another opportunity to complete this transaction and get the new vehicle for another week or more, because the present owners are leaving town for that long. Since none of us actually live in Moose Jaw, finding a mutually convenient time frame to come there from opposite directions to do the paperwork and make the switch of vehicles becomes a bit complicated.

If it all works as planned tonight, since I have no way to get myself to Moose Jaw to sign on as co-owner of the new vehicle, we are unclear as to whether or not I will be legally covered to drive it until we can make that arrangement. Saturday is the earliest day we could arrange that, effectively messing up my plans for tomorrow.  hahahaha

Will be interesting to see how this goes. Soap opera or no soap opera?

Now, off for a haircut and a salad lunch at Zam Zam Wraps!
