Sorry about this extended absence that's been going on around here.
We have AAA for Auto insurance and just a few minutes ago while I was packing up our apartment, I found some mail from them saying it was time to renew. I quickly looked through the paperwork and found that I had missed the due date to make the payment on time. Uh oh... looks like our insurance lapsed... and that means that any time you try and get insurance the record of that shows up and makes it more expensive (the reason I know this is because I let our insurance just run out instead of canceling it when our old volvo stopped working and we were leaving island anyway, apparently that's no good and you get charged more when you get back and try an insure a new vehicle).
I called AAA to make the payment and asked if there was a penalty and the girl helping me was so nice and cheerful and said no, and that AAA is pretty lenient about that. Thank Goodness!
Back to cleaning and packing... but now i'm scared to find other stuff that needed to be done. Cross your fingers!
