My 2013 CRV Honda Test Drive

As mentioned in some previous posts, I was selected by Ken Garff Honda of Orem to test drive a 2013 Honda CRV for a bloggers promotion called the Honda Test Drive (or #HondaTestDrive on social media). I’ve been a Honda fan for my whole life. My parents owned Honda vehicles all through my life. They […]

Any brilliant ideas for a name? So far I’m calling it the Silvery-Blue Toaster.

Camarillo the Cali Camry

I’m really attached to my car. Last week, Camarillo the Cali Camry (Or Cami for short) hit 150,000 miles. I felt that it would be an opportune time to give an ode to my dear vehicle. We met in 2007 in Orange County. I’d been a Honda Girl who went to the lot originally scoping […]

The Damage

I had a hard time getting a shot that accurately shows the damage. The headlight and grill is displaced about 6 inches, and the side headlight fell off (I stuck it back on for the picture) The bumper is amazingly completely intact, and only slightly scratched. The hood peaks up about 4 inches. It could […]

Picked up the paper, it was more bad news…

Now that I have a bit of time to blog, I’ll give you the gory details on my last 24 hours. I got to the sleep center at 8:30, registered, filled out questionnaires, and told the sleep tech that I’d like to get to bed around 10:30. She said that it wasn’t likely, but she’d […]

Should I scream or should I cry?

The sleep study was frustrating. Details to follow. On the way back from the hospital, a lady in a shiny new Volvo slammed on her brakes and I rear-ended her. Her bumper has a little scratchy ding, but the front of my Camry is smashed in. And I’m so broke I have no idea how […]

WALL-E and BBs

Today started out so great..slept in with Taylor, ate some yummy french toast for breakfast, watched a beautiful rainstorm, and then saw WALL-E with Rosie, Taylor, Mike, and Erin. As we walked out to the car after the flick, I noticed seven bullet holes in the side of Taylor’s Civic!!! I just came back inside […]

Requiem for the Silver Bullet…a.k.a. Taylor’s Lament
