weekly post

Good morning.
I've just returned from cleaning the Salon. It was another average week in the salon.
Last Tuesday, we made the move and bought a new car. It is a Jeep Renegade.
These are stock pics from web sites as the weather has been to nasty to try and get real pics. But ours is exactly like these pics.
We ultimately decided to buy now because a special discount was to expire on March 31st. That saved us an additional $1500. Also, the interior that Craig wanted was found on only one car in the entire state.
The interior is called ski grey/bark brown. Most of the jeeps have black interior. Craig especially liked the matching orange trim on the air vents, speakers and center console.

And here's a pic of the 'keys'....
Actually, no 'key' at all. You put this in your pocket. As you approach the car and put your hand inside the door handle, it automatically unlocks. To start the car, you step on the brake and push a button.
The Renegade is the smallest SUV of the Jeep lineup. It's just a little bit bigger than my Kia was.
We test drove one and they searched and found the exact one we wanted over in Lowell and had it brought to Lansing where we picked it up Wed. after work.
Now we have to scour the instruction booklet and figure out all the fancy gadgets it has on it. It has 2 programmable touch screens. One where the radio is and the other where the speedometer is.
In other news........
Our meeting with the lawyer went well. Our buyer will use our lawyer to negotiate a new lease as soon as we receive the receipt from the certified letter we sent. And about that.....
We sent it a week and a half ago. I thought we should have gotten the return by now. Well, Craig said we could go online and track it so Friday after work, I did just that to find that it left Lansing and disappeared.
Called the 800 number on the receipt and the post office opened a case on it. Got a call on Saturday from the Pontiac post office saying they didn't have it and we should call our post office to track it. So Monday, we get to do that. What was that 800 number for?  :-/
We're not suppose to close on the business until July, so good thing we started all this early.
Also, Craig got a text from Humana that a prescription was up for renewal. Went online, clicked a link and it was done.  So easy! And it'll be delivered so no going out to pick it up.
So it was a busy week even though not busy at work.
And that's it for now.
