New Jeep  
Ok I need to post about this before I forget all the details. Aug 3rd was a day off for us and we were working at the other house. Mid day we decided to go to Ferman to look at the Jeeps as I really needed a vehicle. The salesman named Juan was very nice and I had done my research so I already knew what I wanted. I told him I was interested in a 2 door Sahara and I wanted to test drive one to see what I thought. They didn't have any Saharas in 2 doors but they had two 75th Anniversary Saharas. I test drove the army green one. I loved the leather seats. But I can't really tell from one drive around the block. And I didn't have the seat right. It was too close to the steering wheel so I couldn't tell if I liked it or not. I was rather sure I did. BUT I did not like the 75th anniversary one as it had ridges on the hood and the whole point is for me to paint this like a Jurassic Park Jeep with my number on the hood. So I can't have any thing like that. So we went inside and I told him what I liked and that I did not care about the color as I would be painting it anyway. So long as the interior was black. Luckily most come with black interiors so that's good. He found two in Tampa to ship over to them. They were the same except one was $1000 more because of the leather seats. I went with the cheaper one and later realized that was a mistake. More on that later. Anyway it went very well and we were financed through the dealership. We spent a long time there but I was quite happy. Poor Chris had a headache. Luckily they had snacks and drinks and I got him some advil for his headache.

The new Jeep arrived on Friday the 5th. It was black so it looks lovely. I gave the down payment and I was given the keys. I have since found the perfect placement for the seat. I love my Jeep but I wish I had chosen the other one now. I don't like the cloth seats. They are hot, hard and rough. I'm going to have to upgrade them later on and pay the thousand dollars anyway. Probably more because I didn't do it outright. The only custom stuff is I have my JP hang tag in the mirror. I'm not going to do any major changes to it until it's paid off. And I'm hoping it will be paid very soon once I can get this house on the market. Once the house sells I can pay the Jeep off and all will be good. I've been very stressed dealing with the house and the business issues still. I wish I could take my Jeep out for fun. I'd love to go to the park or the beach with it. So far it's just been a work vehicle going back and forth between properties.

About three days ago my Fibromyalgia acted up pretty bad that I had to be in bed. I was so weak and achy I couldn't walk. I still haven't recovered and today is the best I have felt in three days. I need to get over this and be fully physically well as my cruise is coming up in just over a week. I want to forget about all the house stuff for a week and enjoy seven days in the tropics celebrating our 20th anniversary. A late celebration but still we've earned it.

It is really amazing how there's quite a number of obstacles blocking your way like choosing the best Jeep, cleaning the house, your Fibromyalgia acting up, yet you still keep a positive outlook on things and still think for the better to come yet. That's the Thagirion we know well. :)

Yeah, you don't know the half of it. This is a very stressful point in my life. This will not be easy but I know once everything is taken care of it would have been worth all the trouble. I have to try to stay positive because if not it would drag anyone down.

I know it's not easy, but I bet you can handle those issues just fine. That's the spirit, stay positive!

I already knew you had gotten your Jeep, and I would love to see it in person. This must be pain flare up week because mine has annoyed me every morning this week except today. I can push through it most of the time, but there are times where I just want it to go away.

If I didn't have all this stupidity going on I'd drive to your house now. I'd love to take off on a road trip with it. Oh no not you too. It's been pretty bad. I think I am getting better though. But lost three days of work because of it. I hope you get better too.

Wow, that's a lot of stuff happening in your life! Congratulations on your new jeep. I hope you can change to leather seats soon. I'd be inclined to go back to the dealer and swap although that would cost money. You would need a vehicle to keep going back to the other house to work on it 'cause Chris has to work. That sucks that your fibromyalgia has been acting up and put a stop to work. Wow, your trip is coming up soon! So, yeah, rest up and get better so that you can enjoy it!

Yes so much going on and most of it is stressful. The seats will have to wait. They are not a priority right now. I wish I could change them right now but well seems there's no time for fun things at the moment. Yeah I have to keep it because I need to be able to drive on my own. Yes I felt bad I lost some days of work but I hope it's ending now. Yes I really need a vacation so I am looking forward to it.

I'm thinking I'm going to have to befriend you on dA to keep up with you!

I'd love to have you there. I have three accounts. My original art, my fan art and my photos.

So, I just look you up as Thagirion? I've forgotten :P
