What a week

I feel like it's been forever since I've posted on Cheapie Cheapie. So much has happened this week..

Our house was hit by a pickup truck early Thursday morning. I'm not joking.

We live on a corner and there was a head on collision in front of our house. We live pretty far back from the road, but the pickup involved went careening through our front yard into our house.

THANK GOODNESS we were not there when it happened. I took my 3-year-old daughter and our dog the night before and spent the night at my mom and dad's on a whim. Otherwise I would have been reading the news online and drinking my coffee when the truck hit our computer room. It's really scary to think about the what-ifs.

I don't know the condition of the people involved in the accident. I do know they both went to the hospital and the man has to be there for awhile.

And I know the lady that caused the accident and crashed into our house is uninsured. Yep.

Thankfully we have awesome home-owner's insurance. They are taking care of us every step of the way. This is going to be a long process for repairs, but our house is livable while they work.

A word to the wise about those of you that use cell phones instead of home phones: When you get your driver's license renewed make sure your cell phone is listed with your driver's license. The State Highway Patrol couldn't get ahold of us because we only use cell phones and they couldn't locate our numbers. They ended up finding my in-laws and then my in-laws contacted me. It made for an extremely stressful morning to say the least. Save yourself the time and the hassle in case of an emergency and get your cell listed with your license. Trust me on this one.

So sorry to hear about your house! That's insane and go figure she would have no insurance. It's so great that you weren't home though and no one was hurt! Hope everything gets fixed soon!
