Bad News!

Thursday evening on my way home from work I got into a car accident.  It was absolutely terrifying!  My Subaru's front end is smashed up and the radiator (which I had replaced a little over a month ago) is leaking.  I'm not hurt (other than a constant headache since it happened and minor body aches).  So that's the good news.  The bad news?  The guy responsible is uninsured, so the repairs fall on me.  I have to come up with a $250 deductible and my insurance rates are going to go up. To top it all off, I don't have rental car coverage.  I'm broke so I can't just afford a rental indefinitely.  This is such a stressful situation!  I got a message from the body shop yesterday saying they estimate it will take 1 week for every 1,000 dollars of damage.  They don't have a cost estimate yet but based on my best guess, I think I may be without a car for 3 or more weeks!  Sorry to unload all this on here but I am just feeling so overwhelmed and helpless.  
So because of all of this, I may not be able to post on here as often as I would like!  Take care friends!  Drive safe and make sure you add uninsured motorists to your insurance if you don't already have it!  


  1. Aww, Heather...
    I'm soooo sorry to hear this, Hun!!!

    I'm glad you weren't seriously hurt, but what a huge burden to deal with :(
    I hope that guy gets his license revoked for driving without insurance!!!

    I'm so sorry....
    I'll be thinking about you....

  2. Thanks Cameron. It's a crappy situation and I'm pretty sad to lose my lovely Subaru. :(


I love to hear from you! :)
