After this Friday’s events, I was afraid the mobile store would be out of commission for about two weeks. For those of you who have not been following on Facebook, the glass in my front passenger door met an untimely death when a piece of gravel came flying at it. Thankfully, neither rock nor glass came anywhere near the driver’s seat or yarn but it did make its way under the book wall into the bag storage area.
Of course this all happened the day that Rogers decided to go down so, even though I am with a different provider, I was in the middle of a dead zone when this happened. I slowly drove back to town, hazard lights flashing away, to take care of insurance and quotes to replace the glass. By the time I made it home, however, my (down east) provider’s office was already closed for the weekend. Here’s hoping I hear from them Monday. I also waited until Saturday to get quotes for glass replacement and guess who’s closed on the weekends.
Since I really didn’t want to wait until the door is permanently fixed before getting back out on the road, Mom and I did a little shopping after church, found an appropriately sized piece of plexiglass, and (with the help of a neighbour with a table saw- thx TE) gave an almost invisible makeover to the door. Hopefully this will do until insurance kicks in and the permanent fix happens.
So YAY I will be back to the regular schedule right away on Monday expecting to answer lots of questions from those of you who do follow me on Facebook. Until then, be careful out there! You never know when a random rock is going to give you a weekend off!
