Wow, I actually got another snow day today! What an awesome surprise! I got the phone call at 6:15am after I had already showered, gotten ready, and packed my lunch. So, who I am to argue with that? I went straight upstairs and climbed right back into my warm, comfy bed…..
And if my day couldn’t get any better I got a great package in the mail, too!
I received my baked goods from the blogger exchange that Erica organized! Laura, from foodsnobstl, sent me some delicious chocolate mint cookies.
These pictures don’t do the cookies justice:
I really need a light box………(hint hint, J)
I think there may only be one or two of these bad boys left. They were pretty fantastic. Thank you, Laura!!
And THEN things got even better. I know, I know, how could this be, right?
Well, I never shared this with you, but something happened the day before Thanksgiving. As J was backing out of the garage he accidentally HIT the Traverse!!!!! I’m sure you can only imagine how stressful this was. I know things happen, but this was a pretty big “thing” (TWSS – hehe – I can laugh about it now).
I told my contact at Chevy what happened and returned the car as scheduled to the dealer the next week. Since I was headed out of town to Vegas, and since J was claiming the incident on his insurance (yes, we still have separate car insurance), he was corresponding with Chevy and the dealer. The final quote ended up being over $1,000!!!! And even though the insurance was covering the bill, it was still a hit on the insurance (I’m sure everyone knows how one little thing can raise your rates!).
So, when the Chevy dealer tweeted me asking that J call them when he had time I got a little nervous. Seriously, what now? Well, they were calling to tell us that they wanted us to have a great experience with them and they were going to pay for the damage. Say that again, please??! OMG, how nice! The last email I had said “I hope you and Heather have a great Christmas as well and thank you both for being so honest. This is a great lesson for our kids…..honesty brings great results!”
So true. I try to live every day being a good example for C, and maybe one day he’ll learn from this (I can only hope!).
I can’t say enough great things about the people we dealt with during my month with the Traverse and during the “incident”. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
What are you thankful for today?
