Ten Minutes of Torture ~ School Closed ~ Playing Hookie
I am feeling better somewhat, so I walked 10 minutes on the treadmill. This was torture, considering I coughed a few times (I was told you should not exercise with a cough). I took it easy, but those ten minutes felt like 2 hours. I have not walked, nor exercised for several weeks now. I think I heard bones creaking - ha ha ha!
School is closed today. It works out for us, although we have some errands to run, before Hubby and I run away for the weekend. Yep! We are on the road, so say a prayer.
First we need to go visit an insurance office. Our current insurance company first quoted us $4,600/year for insurance (with the two sold and a new one to replace), then she called back with $3,600.00.
We didn't like this woman, as she avoided our questions, and didn't answer us on others. My son was the driver in an accident over 3 years ago, and we asked about her reviewing our coverage, and possibly going down.
So....hubby got on the phone and got more quotes for car insurance. This time we were told, that accidents go off after 3 years, however, hubby had a speeding ticket a year ago (tsk, tsk, tsk). Anyway, she's quoting us a much lower rate - $2,400/year. The other place told us that it is 4 years (she "thinks" that accidents are removed).
Hence, the trip to town, on icy roads to get the better insurance today. Say a prayer for our safety today and this weekend.
Farm updates: We are low on wood and hay (very low). We are searching for hay, which is the worst of our problems.
A year of quotes:
