Last Friday night, while driving my daughter home from gymnastics practice, I hit a deer with my car. (Technically, the deer hit my car, too.) My car suffered some damage to the right front fender, and both passenger doors. The car’s passenger-side mirror was destroyed.
Thankfully, my daughter and I are find. I’m not able to say, with any level of certainty, that the same is true for the deer. After the collision, I kept driving until I could find a safe place to pull off of the road, and I never saw what happened to the deer. I hope the deer is okay. I’m fine and so is my daughter.
I called my insurance company’s claims department they should process the claim in a day or so. We’ll need to dip into our emergency fund (or use money from our miscellaneous budget category) to cover the deductible amount.
I’ll let you know how things pan out – and I’ll even post some before and after photos. I would have had some shots for this article, but I actually drove the car to my wife’s school this morning, and brought her van home.
On a much happier front, I’m down 17.2 pounds!
