Rachael had a fender bender on Thanksgiving Day. Her fault. Not much damage to the other car - a broken tail light and a slightly crunched, scratched fender. I don't want to turn it in on the insurance. It will raise my rates and damage her rating. The lady called tonight - she is willing to let me pay for the repairs without involving insurance companies (at my request). Cost - $1200. I told Rachael she was responsible for $500 (the amount of the deductible). I can almost swing the rest - except this is December. How will I do that AND pay for Christmas?
I have no interest in my work these days. The teacher I share a room with, the one I complain about......she's just terrible to work with. I dread going to our room every day, knowing I'll have to deal with her.
And dammit...I need a break. I have been working nonstop since last Christmas. Holidays, summer, weekends. I never have more than one day off from BOTH jobs. I swore I was going to find a way to go to Texas to visit Steven's parents with him between Christmas and New Year's - while the kids are with their dad. But with the fender bender debt, and Christmas, and all the other bills......I just don't see how I'm going to do it.
Anway, I'm done whining now. Thanks for "listening".
