Tough Time...

If you're wondering what happened to me, I can only say that life has intruded on my computer time in a major way. I'll be working for the next three to four days to get all caught up, so if you've been expecting an email from me, it'll be coming very soon!

My son, Dustin, was in a car accident last Wednesday. Thankfully, no one was injured, but unfortunately, the van was totaled, leaving us without a vehicle. We found out Friday that after everything is paid, we'll only get 300 or so from the insurance company. Not exactly enough to buy a new vehicle. We're hopeful though, that our perfect payment history on the previous car loan will help us get another one.

So, I've been hunting down vehicles and doing extra work to try and get enough together for a down payment. Here are the photos of the car accident:

We truly are grateful no one was injured, including the other driver. Things could have been so much worse. The front axle was broken, and I know it's hard to see from the photo, but the tire is bent inward. I'm just glad we had full coverage on the vehicle and we won't be walking away with a huge loan payment for a vehicle we don't own anymore.

So okay, I've got to get back to work. Thanks for checking up to see how I'm doing!

Thank goodness everyone is safe and that Dustin is okay. As much as we hate paying those insurance bills, its a good thing at times like this that the insurance is available to cover it. Wish you got more out of the deal though so you could have a nice down payment. I will be thinking good thoughts your way!

Glad every one got out okay. :)

I'm glad to hear that everyone was OK. My son was in two (only one his fault) and I know how your heart stops when they call and say, "I was in an accident"

Glad you are OK!!! And so glad to know your insurance will cover it.

Sorry to hear about the accident and delighted to know that no one was injured.

Have you replaced your car?

Take care,
