Trooper.......HE IS MINE!!!

January 30th, 2009 (12:09 am)

Yes, against all odds and bails and bails of tangled red tape?
I am now the actual owner, in name and title, of my car.

*BEAMS*

Thank-you so very much, angrystan for all your support today.
I think I would most certainly have lost my nerve without you.
That DREAD in the pit of my stomach that assured me no matter what I did,
there was no way I could get through all this muck and paperwork and public offices...
FAIL was, I was near certain, once again in my future.

But you went with me, and you sat patiently beside me--though there was no real reason
for me to have woken you up that early from your 3rd shift slumber to come along.

You did it because you knew I could not do it without you.
*HUGS YOU SO HARD*

When it was all over, it was like this STONE lifted off me!!!
I called my Father INSTANTLY when it was over, and he rejoiced with me via cell phone.
*laughs and beams*
And I got to take you to my new favourite noodle joint as a reward,
the two of us slurping away in bliss.

ALL this before I even went to work this afternoon.

And then the call from Clarke--who needed a RIDE!!!
*HOORAY*
I had such a wonderful time picking up my co-worker in my very own car.
I am completely serious--it was AWESOME!!!

What a full day--polished off with a very fruitful shift that did not break my back.
In at 5, out just after 11 PM.
*sweet*

Gave our Bryce a ride home after work!
I felt like a hero.

And tomorrow, tomorrow does not start until Noon--and is the PRIMO swing shift!
(I usually start at 10 am and am cut early, all the opening work with no reward)
My rent is already paid, my bills are solid, I am getting a fat check from my Uncle Sam
and I own my very very very first automobile.

^_^

Seriously.
I am just so happy....I could SPIT!

*EDIT

Oh heck, I forgot to mention the young man who filed my paperwork today:
Francisco.
He was awesome. Such a helpful, but SERIOUS young man...
I made him smile, finally, as I got up to leave.
I stood up very ready to throw my arms around him
in a joyful hug--but stopped myself.
I'm really not supposed to umm, hug you,
am I...

I winced.
His face finally cracked into a grin, and he shook his head.

Thank-you all the same, you were wonderful!
he nodded, and I scooped up my pile of envelopes and paperwork
and laughing out loud, wandered off to find my angrystan...
who really isn't ever nearly as angry
as you would think.

^_^

I feel obliged to mention

I am angrystan because angst-ridden-chronically-depressed-neurotic-and-as-it-happens-neurologically-special-stan wouldn't fit in the little blank.

Thanks J.
You and the Miss must come up sometime when...
Well, numb butts are not involved.

One of these years I will actually have
a guest room.
I swear.
