And Now For Some Good News....

Hubby talked w/ Brian from the is. co. yesterday, so I didn't have to get all tuff & bitchy with him!! {I was kinda looking forward to it!!! LOL} It turns out they will fix everything except the dent, which will cost a tad over $3000, and the remaining $2000 {or there abouts} which will equal the value of the truck, they will cut us a check for. It turns out they will give us $5000, {the value of the truck}, but won't fix it if the repair costs exceed 60% of that value!! Makes no sense to me ~ $5000 is $5000, no matter what/who the check is written for ~ unless you're an ins. co.!! And it turns out that to write the truck off as salvage involves more paperwork than getting it fixed & cutting us a check, and Brian didn't want to deal with the extra paperwork!! Thank goodness for excessive amounts of paperwork & lazy ins. adjusters!!
Hubby has decided we will live with the dent for awhile & use the $2000 to get out of this apartment. Since we've had kids, we've always rented a 3 bedroom house and now we're cramped into a 2 bedroom apt. Which I hate! I love having my own yard, driveway, laundry room, and of course the xtra space!!

Although the kids have today off, I don't, so I'm off to get ready for work and to leave you with today's goodie ~ another bow & ric rac ~

Thank you, and I'm glad that things worked out!! We're working on the third child due in September.. and our two bedroom apartment isn't going to last us either. So we're in the same boat and I can't wait to FINALLY get a house!! :)

Musta had a typo in yesterdays post. Somewhere I got the idea your truck was worth 58,000. I couldn't imagine repairs in that range. so glad it's working out.
Thanks
