Just when life seems like it’s going great and there’s nowhere to go but up, there is always something that seems to be lurking in the shadows, waiting to drag you down. I’m not completely down and out about it (because things could have been worse), but this is what happened to me last week after coming back to my car after work:
Looking aside from the fact that my car needed a wash, I had come back to my car and someone had STOLEN all four of my wheels, lug nuts and all. Imagine my surprise! I was a bit more upset because I had just replaced my tires in the spring, but I’m over this appalling act because I don’t have time to sulk over it and don’t want to waste my time sulking over it. I’m dealing with insurance to replace the wheels, but they seem to be taking their sweet time in working through my claim. I hope to hear from them soon, as I am currently driving on my winter tires and don’t want to need to replace those as well. If you’re reading this and regularly drive or park your car some distance from work, consider wheel locks! It won’t deter determined thieves, but it might help. I am so thankful that my boyfriend was able to be there to help me through the initial shock and handle the situation. I was embarrassed beyond words when people walking to their cars, noticed and stared at my wheel-less vehicle. It’s almost like forgetting to put on a pair of pants.
Besides having been a victim of theft, life has been smooth sailing. Nothing to complain about work, the construction of the house is coming along and my sister and I have been gathering a few more things for the home (which I will share in a later post).
Here are pictures from the end of August/beginning of September at a girlfriend’s, small get-together/housewarming.
Here are a few pictures from my weekend, just getting some exercise with the boyfriend in downtown Calgary:
I promise to be back soon!
