Ouch! Glad to hear Evan is okay and think you're doing the right thing by making him cover his own insurance even if the accidents weren't completely in his control.Good morning and Happy Thursday,
Sorry for not being around again this week. Kind of been in a funk and haven't wanted to spread my bad cheer.
Evan had an accident a couple weeks ago. He was late to work, distracted, and hit a light pole with his car. He is fine, thank goodness. And no one else was hurt either. He was not on his phone. I checked online, on the logs. No official word from insurance company but pretty sure his car is totalled.
So just one of those things but this is the second car he has totalled. The first one was a genuine accident, was dark and snowy and someone was stopped in a right turn lane to help someone else who had slid off the road right there and by the time Evan realized the guy wasn't moving it was too late to get stopped, he slid right into the guy's truck. No one hurt then either, thank goodness.
No matter what insurance decides to do with him (which I fear will be bad) I am going to have to dump him off our policy. I lost MY good driver discount after his first accident and my rates went up, cannot afford another, probably astronomical increase. He is going to have to save up and find something he can pay cash for and only needs liability on.
He is 18 now and in such a hurry to be treated as an adult. This is going to be a very pricey lesson for him. Nothing to do but take his lumps. I go back and forth from feeling bad for him to being angry at him.
So, we are making him ride the bus to school but his work hours are such that I need to pick him up from school so he gets to work on time. Picking Ty up from school every day too, after play practice, plus going back out between 11:30 pm and 12:30 am to pick Evan up from work.
Kids. I swear.
Some good things too...Spencer turned 1 last Friday. He is starting to walk!
And our anniversary is Sunday. 19 years! Does not seem that long.
Anyway, long post. But that is what is happening in my world. Could definitely go for a little less excitement.
Happy Valentine's Day, and happy weekend. Big hugs and positive vibes to all.
Oh my gosh, Spencer is just too cute! Happy first birthday!
Happy Anniversary to you and Scott! And here's to many more.
