Crash and least that's what it feels like today.

March 13th, 2009 at 04:21 am

I want to prefice this entry by saying I am more grateful than I can say that DD3 was not injured in her accident. We are truly, truly blessed that she was ok.

Our insurance company is not going to payoff the car, rather they will pay what they feel the car is worth minus our deductible plus subtract for each ding the car had....oh and the rust on the tire. Luckily, the interior upholstry didnt sag.

So...a car we owned less than 6 months, that was less than low blue blue book when we bought I put $500 down and paid on it for 6 months...and we still have a deficit of almost $1000 from what the insurance is paying and what I owe. ARGH.

I am sure that if she gets another vehicle, it will cost and arm and a leg to insure her.

But again. I am grateful this is our biggest challenge this week and not hospital bills or worse.

Fortunately, I have enough saved to payoff the car. Obviously, leaving it in savings would have been my first choice...especially over paying off something that is worthless. sigh.

Ok, end of rant. DD3 is ok, and thats whats important. Money...just painfully replaceable.

    DD is OK and that is what truly matters. The rest of the stuff can be annoying though. Keep up the attitude of gratitude! There are many blessings to be thankful for! (That is what I've been reminding myself of lately!)

    I am so sorry but glad that your daughter is ok!! I know how you feel. After saving money for my daughter her entire young life, she took all of the money to buy a used car. ($2500-20 some years ago) She totaled it out within 3 months and had no insurance.

    How very frustrating!! I guess the next thing to try is to pay cash for her next car (a lovely beater would do, right??) and just get liability on it. Car payments stink!
