Car Update

I bought a different car.  My old car was not totaled out by the inaurance company bit I was offered a very good deal by the bodyshop.  They offered me $5000.  I thought the most I would have gotten would be $3500-4000 so I sold it.

After car shopping for a couple weeks, I bought a 2015 Dodge Durango.  I wanted an SUV with all wheel drive and third row seating.  I'm looking forward not to getting stuck this winter.

We paid cash for the new car.  I wasn't planning on buying a new vehicle so soon but life happens.  I had the car fund, plus selling my car, and I pulled the rest from various accounts.  I feel very poor now and don't want to spend any money.  It feels good to pay for this car in cash but also nerve-wracking to spend that much in one sweep.

Hit A Deer

I hit a deer as I was driving home from work on Friday.  Thankfully, I do have comprehensive coverage on my car.  I really have no idea on how much my car is worth so it might be totaled.  I turned the insurance claim in right away and brought it to the bodyshop this morning for an estimate.  My coworker has an extra car they don't use so I'm going to be borrowing that.

My deductible is $500 so I know that I'm out that.  I was not planning on getting a new car so soon.

Everything feels in limbo now.
