I got a lot done today. I am focusing on taking care of myself so I bought new undies, socks, and walking shoes (brand new, not from the goodwill like I usually do!) . I bought a fuse for the cigarette lighter in my van. I don’t smoke but I use the lighter to charge my phone sometimes. Let’s see…what else??? I ate Pho which is a vietnamese soup I like. I took a nap. I’m going to wash the van tomorrow, a major undertaking. And I’m going to get a pedicure! So fancy.
I have been looking on Craigslist for a new van. I would like a “Japanese made” one. I use parentheses because from what I understand, a lot of the parts are made in the United States. I have owned both American and Japanese cars before and the Japanese are better. The technology came from us but they have higher standards. I would like my “new” van not to have too much more than 100k miles on it. I would like it to last for a while, at least until I get C paid back. C is loaning me some money for the new van. So with my “high” standards, it’s hard to find something in my price range. I hope Vinny, my current van, can hold out just a few miles more until I find his replacement.
It will be neat having a better vehicle. It will be better looking so I will blend in better. I can also take it out of town. I hardly ever leave town because I’m afraid Vinny breaking down. The van’s my house don’t forget! I can’t have it sitting in a mechanic’s yard. (although I HAVE slept in my van in a mechanic’s lot more than once).
Wish my luck finding a new van!
