My SOUL Mate


Funniest thing I cleaned out of the old car- tassels from my graduation for my bachelor degree

Strangest thing I cleaned out of the old car- found a love note from the ex (blech)

Best thing about the new car- that new car smell

Funniest thing about the new car- my femurs are too short for the seat so I used my purse as a makeshift lumbar pillow 

Second funniest thing about the new car- my husband said this is the only time it will ever be illegally parked. I am a rule follower:)

Thank you for sharing!

    Congratulations! A huge milestone and achievement on so many levels. Look at what you’ve accomplished and overcome. Goodbye poor credit (TO NOT FAULT OF YOUR OWN) and you’ve tackled it…and SCORED yourself a pretty sweet ride – sans any orange stuffing that’ll tickle your passengers. The only thing tickling anyone is that fun color! ENJOY and relish in what YOU have defeated and succeeded!

    1. No orange stuffing indeed! And I love the color! It makes me smile:) I thought about going with something conservative (safe), but decided that this wasn’t the time for that.

  2. Carrie Reimer – I think everyone at one time or another thinks, "If I only knew then what I know now." I share my life experiences in hopes a few less people have to look back and want a "do over". Through my Lady Witha Truck blog I have spent over 10 years sharing my experiences while being in an abusive relationship with a man I consider to be a narcissist/psychopath and through my other blog, Reimer Reason I share lessons learned throughout the 60+ years of my life. No experience is a waste as long as you learn from it and if I can save someone else from making the same mistakes I made, then it makes it all worth while. I am an expert on my life, not yours, my opinions are my own, not yours, and I enjoy open respectful communication on most topics. If I don't have an answer I will research it until I do. I have a sweetheart of a dog named Stella, an 8 year old Pitbull, Mastiff cross. I am artistic, enjoy bringing new life to antiques, gardening, refurbishing and repurposing other people's "garbage", reading, writing and being outside in nature. I have a 38 year old son who I am extremely proud of and a 10 yr old granddaughter I don't see near enough. I live on welfare disability after a lifetime of working full time because I have heart failure. I have gone from being a homeowner and landlord to being homeless and living in my car and now live in a 34' 5th wheel RV trailer that I am fixing up, bought by my brother and mother. I believe life would be far less stressful, and drama filled if we all just lived honest to our core self and listened to our gut. I have found inner peace, something I didn't think truly existed. It isn't what most people think it is.

    Congratulations, I hope you have many safe, worry,free miles of driving as you watch the past fade in the rear view mirror and never look back, except maybe to remind yourself how far you have come.
