Our 2016 Mission and Our Favorite Person!!!
This has been a crazy week for me. I have been working on the car crap. I've been calling Allstate, dealing with the auto-body shop, and had to sort the rental. The good news is the woman that hit Den fessed up right away. Not that it would have been a real problem since she got a ticket but it would have made the process a lot longer for me. Hmmmm, I counting someone being honest as a good thing, something to go in the positive column. Yeah, its been that bad. The car is a lot worse than anyone would have guessed. There is almost $6k in damage. The floor panels are crumpled into the back seat area. Well, that would explain the shaking when you drove it. The funny thing is when she called it in, she told Allstate that all she did was dent the trunk. That took quite a bit to sort. I was ready for a fight but Allstate was cool about it. Even the body shop(we have a great local shop that has a great reputation and I was so glad that they were on the list of places we could go to. That is a plus!) was surprised, they were told it was cosmetic. At first, they thought it would take a week and then they pulled it apart and its way worse than expected. Twenty days at least. I'm now in a rental, a Jeep Patriot. Not a huge fan but it can take our messed up railroad tracks like a champ. The rental place was covered up to $25 a day but the Jeep was all they had so they were like just cover the difference because it would be an upgrade over what we were allowed. Den and I both said, "NO!" at the exact same time. My cheapness has rubbed off on him through the years. They worked something out so we aren't liable for the extra. Yeah, like I was going to pay money because someone hit us. They don't know me! Another plus is the damage is only about half the value of the car so if/when they find more damage, it will be covered. I told Den that I wished DJ's car was the one that had been hit. That would have solved some problems or maybe made more. Who knows.
I also worked on the yard and bought alcohol for the party. Me likey liquor. Hopefully everything will come together for the party and soon. This party is growing at a rapid clip. People are like, "Hey, can I bring so and so." And there you go, you have over 50+ people partying at ours.
I did manage to screw up my ankle pretty bad which is making it miserable trying to get crap done. I rolled my ankle while at CVS. Yeah, its not been a great week. But I am still trying to shave some money off the bills and it seems that even though CVS's parking lot was after me, I still love it there.
So in honor of my favorite place I give you.............................................
Erica from I heart CVS!!!!! She makes it so easy to put a deal together. And it seems that a lot of the stores around here are having better sales. Yay so that is going in my plus column.
What is your favorite deal site? Do you do CVS? Do you have people rear-end you? Hahaha, I'm still an idiot.
