Day 110: December 15th, 2009

Quote of the Day:
"Accept the challenges so that you may feel the exhilaration of victory." - George S. Patton

The whole day wasn't bad, really. I got registered into the classes that I really wanted for the last semester of nursing school. I completed my project and have to wait 72 hours for it to cure.  I got all the bills paid up and current. However, for everything good there has to be something bad, right? So, of course, that means that I have about a hundred dollars left after paying bills to buy food, gas, and Christmas presents with. And Damien, bless him for being soooooo considerate, took care of the rest by wrecking his car... AGAIN.  This time, he says the person in front of him stopped quickly and went to do a U-Turn in front of him, making Damien veer off the road and into a barbed-wire fence.   This is only four months after his OTHER accident in his newer car... that we just bought in July.  Our insurance premiums shot up when we got this stupid car, then shot up again when he got into his first accident, and now this! So they're either going to shoot up yet again, or our insurance company is going to drop us.  It's so frustrating!  I swear to God that some people just were NOT meant to operate a vehicle.

He says that when he hit the barbed wire fence it messed up his bumper and headlight, and then when he had to reverse to get out of the fence it tore it off completely.  LUCKILY, the fence itself was fine (figure THAT out?). And the other car? It left the scene. So the cop accused Damien of lying about the accident.  Sigh.  Thankfully, the cop didn't issue him a ticket, even for the expired proof of insurance in the car from us not remembering to print new ones off.  Now all we need to do is yet AGAIN come up with the five hundred dollar deductible, on top of everything else we have been dealing with.  And someone once said that children aren't really THAT expensive! Right! If it weren't for these two, we would have three grand in our savings account right now. We could have taken a family vacation!
