Life here has been pretty hectic lately. Last week, I crashed my car. I hit a couple of deer on the way to work. Of course, it was on a road that I never would have been on except my daycare called in sick and we were already short people at work. So, I brought Jack up to my parent’s house.
The ordeal was pretty scary. It was the worst wreck I’ve ever been in. I just couldn’t believe that I wrecked my new 2011 Malibu that I just got in February. After a few days, my insurance company considered it totaled and the fun would be begin. I’m very lucky that my insurance is offering an amount that pretty much pays my loan. Now I’m at square one. This time without a car to trade in.
I started the car shopping and I will tell you that it’s not as fun when you are being forced to get a new car when you loved the car you had. I couldn’t seem to find anything that I like or if I liked it, it was out of price or miles range I wanted. I just wasn’t having it.
It’s been just over a week since the accident and I’m less mad and a little more excited about looking for cars. If only there wasn’t that timeline before they take my rental away.
Of course, there was the initial panic that I wouldn’t be able to attend BlogHer. I’ve been reassured by many people that I will NOT be canceling my trip to NYC!! So thankful for that. I know not being able to attend BlogHer is not the worst thing that could happened out of this whole deal. But to work so hard to achieve something like a trip to NYC and then have it taken away because of something I couldn’t control would have sucked and sucked royally.
Now I’m just waiting for my insurance company to do their job so I can officially get a new car. The wait continues……..
