He's Home!

If you couldn't already tell by the title he's home! Who's home you might ask? Why Winston of course, my adorable gentleman of a Jeep Compass!

2008 Jeep Compass a.k.a Winston

It has been 20 days since I've been able to drive my car and let me tell you it feels really strange to be driving him again but I couldn't be happier! I missed my car!

For the twenty long days he was stuck at the body shop (I took him to Royal Coach if anyone is curious) I was given a 2012 Chevy Cruze to drive.

2012 Chevy Cruze
When I first got the rental I have to admit I was pretty stoked. It had XM radio, hands free talking, controls on the steering wheel and a supposed 40 mpg. But to be honest while it does get really good gas mileage it doesn't get anywhere near 40! Driving the car as respectfully as I could seeing as it wasn't mine the best I got was 32 mpg. The first time I had to feel the car up I about had a heart attack at the pump. $58.00 to fill the tank up!! SAY WHAT?!?! 

Now this may be a normal price to others but for a 4-cylinder vehicle I think that's insane. Especially when I fill up Winston I rarely go over $40.00. Hell, when Gregory fills up his super charged Grand Prix that's what he pays... Not cool. After that fill up I had decided I'd had enough of the Cruze and really wanted Winston back. But alas I still had over a week to wait for him.

But all is well in DelFab land Winston is home and parked in my driveway all shiny and happy with no more damage. I even got a fancy new hitch with a nice Jeep rubber cover. (Sorry, no pic)

I have to say this has honestly been a really good week. I've gotten almost the entire accident resolved with the guy who hit me's insurance, my allergies are under control (thank you Claratin), Winston is home, I have a dinner date with Jess from Sparkles & Crafts tomorrow and Saturday I get to try my wedding dress on in front of my family and almost all my bridesmaids. Yup, it's definitely been a really good week and only seems to keep getting better!
