NOT good

So, yesterday was a very busy day. It started with Tommy's soccer game at 8am! Yuck. Not my favorite time, and Tommy was so fixated on the donuts on the sideline that he didn't play well. Not a single goal. His team lost 4-9. Then, we headed to Ikea for their big sale and free breakfast. It was a mess! There was a line halfway accross the building! We had time, so we waited. It wasn't too bad, just a little stressful. Then, we went to help Danny's mom and dad move into their new house. It's a cute little house just a couple of blocks away from Lewisville HS. It has beautiful crown moulding and great Pergo floors throughout! Most everything was moved by the time we got there, but our job was to help unpack and organize. I like organizing, so it was fun, but it was hard work, and would have been much easier if I knew where to put things. There were still some clothes and cleaning supplies, and a cat, to get from Danny's mom's apartment, so when Becky (my sister-in-law) got there we headed on over. Anna, Tommy and their cousin Ben had a great time playing chase and hide and seek in the almost empty apartment, but it was getting late, so we headed back to the house. My van was full of boxes in the back, so I couldn't see out. By that time, I had a massive headache that was headed toward a migrane. I was tired and a little distracted by my 2 cranky kids in the back and a very angry cat in a cat carrier, and I hit some lady that was driving by. I just didn't see her. My bumper was destroyed but it didn't do anything to her car. My bumper is plastic, so it's pretty easy to mess up. Hers was a ghetto Honda that already had some cracks in it. Her husband tried to tell me that I put those cracks there, but there is NO WAY that I did that! She herself said that they were already there!! GRRRR! I hate people like that! We exchanged insurance, and their insurance expires on the 15th. The kid kept on saying that they didn't have insurance, which will be true next week. I REALLY hope they don't file a claim! If they do, I will fight it like nothing else! It will be pointless to file a claim on my car because the cost of repair is less than our deductible. I just don't know what to do at this point. I hate having a ghetto, messed-up car, but I don't want to spend the money to get it fixed right now. Sigh....Not a good day.

I'm sorry you had such a horrible day. I hope today was better.

You know Lewisville High School is only about five minutes from where we live, so any time you're out visiting your in-laws and want to stop by...just call. It would be great to see you.

You poor thing, that sounds awful! I'm so sorry, and I hope you can get everything with the cars and insurance worked out painlessly. Get on the phone with your agent first thing this morning, explain it to them, and get them working on it pronto. That is what you pay them the big bucks for! Hope today is a better day.

Wow, linna. That's horrible. I hope it doesn't add too much hassle to your already busy life!

Bummer :( I hate having a messed up car. Check with Acme and see if they maybe find you a cheap bumper--they patched Chrystal's car up for cheap.

I've been driving a ghetto messed up car for over a YEAR! All because of that stupid $500 deductible! It's all good. I'm sure it will all work out. The lady I rear ended filed a MEDICAL claim on her wreck a HOUR after the accident. I think she was crazy. People get crazy when it comes to car accidents. I hope you get lucky!
