The Results Are In

Surprisingly, they are going to fix my car. I'm on the fence... I mean look at it, would you want that back to drive around? I do want a car... but it would have been nice not to have a car payment for a while! lol.

They are doing $12,000 worth of damage on a $16,000 car. I thought my car would be worth less - but it is a 2008. Apparently, everything "inside" is still good. They are replacing the hood, both fenders, the bumper and few pieces behind the bumper, headlights, radiator, grill, and some other things I don't remember! The repairs come with a warranty. They are guaranteed for as long as I have the car - which is good.

Good news is... I'll be up and moving around the new year. Bad new is... I'm expecting my insurance rate to go up. Yikes!


I managed to get a couple geocaches in yesterday. I had my mom's car because I had to go to the dentist. She said I should be able to hit 300 by the 27th (when I started caching), meaning I can use her car! Yipppee! I have 7 left... so I should probably get 6 in one day, and then my final on another.


I'll be getting a little more exercise the next couple of weeks while my car is gone. I'm demoted from babysitter to dogsitter, while the family that I nanny for goes on holiday vacation. I'll be walking there and back every day for at least a week!


  1. At least you'll get a little extra exercise by walking while your car is being fixed.

    *trying to look on the bright side of life*

  2. Well, at least the exercise is good for you. Good luck on reaching 300!

    That is a lot of repairs they are going to do.

  3. Just catching up on my new posts in my reader.
    Sorry to hear about your accident. Glad to hear that you are ok.
    Lucky girl. That was a big truck.
    Good luck hitting your 300! Crossing my fingers for you.

  4. Fixing it isn't a bad thing as long as insurance pays for it. I've been through it'll be back before you know it!

  5. I guess that's good news on the repairs not so good on the insurance! Sucks! Have fun dog sitting!
