Good as New

Good as New, originally uploaded by CraftyGuy.

Day 2 of NaBloPoMo and I'm still with it (woohoo!)

This is as good a time as any to get you caught up with the whole accident situation from a month ago.

Well, it turns out that the Blazer wasn't totaled after all (good news), and the body shop was able to fix it up as good as new - and maybe even a bit better in many ways from when we had it before - and we had to pay only $7 of the whole expense (even better news)! Why $7? Turns out that the repair job came to $7 more than than estimated insurance payment, and it was just easier to pay that little bit out-of-pocket instead of running it through the whole process.

We ended up having to fork out around $900 for the rental vehicle for the 28 days that we had it while waiting for the Blazer to get fixed. No, we did not have rental coverage (in hindsight, we should have, even if we couldn't afford the extra cost for the insurance - that extra $5/mo might as well be $50).

But when all is said and done, things are returning to some sense of normality, for whatever that's worth...
