Good morning from Buxton!

My car is still in Mount Airy, but I rented a car and drove back home yesterday. Went to Pop’s last night for dinner and drinks. I hadn’t eaten since the hotel breakfast, so I was starving and craving tuna bites. Fun night, and this was waiting for me this morning. I was off the island for 10 days, and missed this terribly. So good to be back!

Young lady you’ve been through quite a lot. As someone who is probably close to your mom’s age and is a mom, I hate it that you’ve had so much to deal with. But I’m also super impressed with how you’ve dealt with everything. Not to diminish what you’ve endured, but you and I both know there are so many people in the world who are dealing with and suffering from far worse situations. Be thankful you are almost able to put this huge bump in the road in the rear view mirror. Carry on and enjoy your new chapter. You’ve got the right stuff to handle anything that comes your way!! smiley

Buxton or bust!
Glad you made it back safely, and hope the car issue is soon resolved.I'm sure it’s very frustrating.
One day you will laugh about all this. At the very least, you have a “story”
How did the abode fare?

Welcome back Jessica! I still cant believe all this has happened to you. Is the shop in Bland taking any responsibility for this latest issue? I would be insanely ticked lol.

Keep the faith and keep us updated on island life. I've said it before and I'll say it again....if anyone was meant to be an island girl, its you! Island Island

The abode fared well, thanks! Just a lot of branches and twigs on the deck. I feel very fortunate!

Thanks, Nicki! The shop in Bland isn’t returning calls, but I disputed the $4,300 they charged me with the credit card company, so not sure how it’s all going to play out yet. The shop in Mount Airy has been sending me pics of all of the things they screwed up, though, so I have that working for me. It has been a very rough start, but being back on the island for now has done wonders for me emotionally. Looking forward to just getting my car back here and getting back to life.

Thank you so much! It’s so good being back here, even though the car ordeal still isn’t over yet. Just the smell of salt crossing the bridges made everything OK again. I had a wonderful dinner at some friends’ house tonight and things started feeling normal again. I just love it here so much!

Hey Jessica...just wondering when you're gonna update your OBC profile to remove the Evansville location reference. With all you've been through I'd say you're nothing but 100% Buxton!!! Glad you're back again.

I've been thinking about you. the other day someone on one of the daytime shows said - If you want the rainbow you have to get through the rain. It made me think of you; Hope everything continues to come info focus. Wishing you nothing but rainbows!

Thank you! I’m so over the rain. Enjoying the rainbow this week, and hopefully from now on after I get my car back next weekend. I’m off work tomorrow, so I finally get to enjoy some real beach time!

Doing well, thanks! Things have been pretty hectic lately. This would normally be my fall vacation when other friends from Wilmington and Norfolk I met through my local friends and I come to the island. The fall crew is here now and I’ve been meeting up with everyone right after work.

I still go to watch the sunrise every morning, but overslept this morning. However, it’s overcast today, so I’m guessing I didn’t miss it. The wind is crazy, just how I love it, because the waves are beautiful to watch!
This was Monday at the jetty.

Of course I echo, Manteoman - and look forward to reconnecting in person down the line... Winter on the Outer Banks is extra special. We'll rendezvous soon.

No worries! I’m good! Had to be driven into work the past two days due to the deep overwash in Avon, but it’s been an adventure! Thanks for checking on me, though. All is well here, and loving life on the island!

Jessica did you get your car fixed? You might want to think about trading up to something with about 3 feet of lift. I'm glad to read you're doing okay.
