Crash up

On Friday, our car was involved in a car accident. It was hit by a motorist going too fast on our street. We were lucky because my wife and daughter had just gotten home from a late night of shopping.

I think the driver of the other car was pissed at us, because they tried to talk to us and I said:

"I'm sorry, you just smashed our car, I don't have any sympathy for you".

The passenger and driver of the car wasn't hurt, but it's been a pain. We rented a new mini-van and now we have to let the insurance company take care of the problem. Hopefully, we can be made whole. We hoping that our car was totaled so we don't have to drive it again.

Frigidaire deluxe

I fire up my personal finance software, like a teenager looks at a refrigerator even when he's not hungry. Sometimes we need reassurance it's just there.
