Hit And Run Wrap-up

A day short of three weeks later, we finally got permission to have our car fixed!
That crazy, McDonald's lovin', little old pirate lady continued to be evasive even with her own insurance company. It took them nearly two weeks to get her side of the story which was that Christy ran the red light, hit her (amazingly, with her right passenger side door, no less) and then left the scene. Hmmm. That sounds familiar - oh yeah, because that what she herself did to Christy (except, more conveniently, with her front bumper)! So then they tried to get in touch with the witness and that took another week. Finally, I got a call Tuesday that they had determined the liability to be their insured (fantastic detective work!) and that we should begin the process to get the car repaired.

It looks like the repairs will take anther couple of weeks, but at least we're moving in the right direction.

We're very thankful that my Dad was on vacation and loaned us his car for our trip to Michigan over the weekend of Christmas, so we didn't have to miss that. Right now, we're still driving the car until repairs can begin (hopefully sometime next week).

Hopefully, I'll be able to get a little bit more news from last weekend posted this weekend. No promises, though.

If I don't get back before 2006 arrives...Happy Anniversary of the commencement of, um -- Happy New Year!!
