I got a little surprise on Friday that Blake got the day off. I just love when these happen because they don't happen often enough. So like I mentioned on Thursday that our original plan this weekend was to go see a car on Sunday. Well, since Blake got the day off, we just decided to hop in the car and drive on over to Mobile and see said truck.
Yes. You read that right. We drove to Mobile. Which is 2 and a half hours away from where we live! My husbands idea. Not mine. Homeboy is willing to drive as far as it takes to get the cheapest deal on a truck. Crazy kid.
Obviously, we got to have a little mini road trip!
And we got a huuuggeee surprise when we pulled up to see the truck.
We would much rather deal with private parties when getting vehicles (read: Craigslist). So much to our surprise that we pulled into a repo lot. Where all of the vehicles there we're pieces of crap.
I'm sorry. But if you list the vehicle on Craigslist. Or anywhere for that matter. I would expect you to list if there are any problems with said vehicle. Don't say that the tires are "as good as new" when they barely have a tread on them! Even when we called to ask if there we're any mechanical issues because we didn't want to waste a drive up there, don't say that it "works perfectly fine" Because it didn't work perfectly fine!!
Needless to say, we didn't buy the truck. If the tires we're actually drivable we might have purchased it. But it was a risk to drive it two and a half hours back.
So back to Florida we went.
On our way back one of my wife friends texted me if we wanted to play pool when we got back. So we went and played and then went out afterwards for a little country line dancing. My personal fave. Blake was partial to the mechanical bull riding.
Sunday started with a run to Starbucks and started a new book The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks. My mom actually got me this book for Spring Break two years ago for a "beach read" but I clearly didn't do any reading at all then, ha :)
Lets have a great start to the week!
