Well it looks like my wife will have to rent a car for her business trip. It’s not far enough to justify an airplane trip, but her car has decided to make some funny noises and there is no way I will have it fixed in time for her to go. I found some good car rental deals though and that will suffice. Her boss has decided to pay for the rental, so it will not come out of our pockets. I am just going to put her car in the shop while she is gone and be done with it. I am sure it is nothing major, but really don’t want to mess with it myself at this time.
This trip is an annual trip she takes to inspect a factory they use for some of their products. it is about five hours away in a very small town, hence the reason she drives there. She likes to take road trips anyway and this gives her an excuse to go on one all by herself. She says it is relaxing to be away from the office and be able to just unwind on the way to the factory. I have offered to go with her a few times, but she always declines.
I do worry about her on the road, but she is a big girl and can take care of herself. She can change a flat tire and anything else she has AAA for. I will miss her but it is only a week, so she won’t be gone long.
I am browsing through http://www.parkautomall.com looking for used trucks for the business. It has been a long time since I have purchased any new work vehicles. The ones I have are getting old and worn out. We bought them when we first started the company and that was long ago. Since our company has grown a lot, it is time to purchase new trucks. We are able to at this time due to a new contract I just finished negotiating. I am so very happy about that.
This site is neat as they also have a used car blog as well as videos and pictures. I have found almost everything I need so far and I am not finished looking. The wife is going to take the day off so she can help drive the vehicles back to the shop after we buy them. We will have to make a couple of trips because I can’t take any of the employees with us as we have too much work right now with dead lines that have to be met.
My wifes car broke down this morning and it was forty five minutes before I could get to her. Suffice it to say that she is not a happy camper today and I don’t blame her. I am not sure what is wrong, but I believe it is an electrical problem. I had it towed to a shop, and picked my wife up from there to take her to work. I hope they figure out what it is and fix it quickly. There is too much electronics in cars these days.
