car continued...

So, the car is totalled...
I owe $1200 on the car still.
The insurance company seems to think my car is worth $5000.
so after paying off the car and my deductable... i get $2200 to put down on a new car.
so it ended up working out good in the end.
Mini-van here i come. LOL

Last nite, i got home from YW and parked my car in my usual parking space and came in the house... after a long day I just wanted to relax. Went almost immediately to bed. I was in bed when i heard a loud bang outside. This is not uncommon, however... we have a walnut tree and under the tree is a shed with a metal roof. So we hear the walnuts hitting the roof often and i don't even think about the sound anymore. However, this one was a bit louder then usual... I thought, "wow that must have been a big walnut..." Didn't think anything else of it until... Sean went outside and came back in a min later and asked where my car was... "what do you mean, where is my car? i parked it where i always do???" Furiously running through my brain was... OHMYGOSH, did i forget to pay the bill and someone come repo the car? did i leave the keys in the car and someone come steal it????


My car had come out of gear (or did i leave it out of gear???) and rolled 50 feet down the hill into a tree.... (that was the loud walnut falling...)

All in all... not my fault... Sean was sending me text messages and was distracting me from my parking the car correctly!?!?!? or maybe the car wanted to be free...
who really knows what happened here... :)

we are pretty sure it will be deemed total loss, but we should find out in a day or so... for now... you are welcome to join everyone else in laughing at my stupidity...

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Taison had a contest a school. They were to make a robot out of recycled materials. Taison and Daimon both decided to make one. This is what they came up with. They designed it all themselves! just a little help from me with the tape... Taison actually got 1st place in his class and was able to put his robot on display in front of the whole school!!! He was so excited. So proud of you, Taison!
