Sunday Salon / Sunday Post – Happy Mother’s Day! – Weekly Rewind – Mail Call


The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an
informal week in review gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.
You can also link up weekly on Readerbuzz.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by
Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer
~ It’s a chance to share news~
A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.


I want to wish all the moms a very Happy Mother’s Day!

It was a normal week here for me, but Daughter #1 can’t say the same. She was driving home from work Monday afternoon when a semi kicked up a huge piece of the highway. No time to stop she hit the concrete and the front tire on the driver’s side exploded. The piece continued on with some velocity to damage the oil pan, catalytic converter, muffler before taking out one of the rear tires. “It happened so fast!”

First, I am thankful she was not hurt and must have done some great driving to keep it under control. A few years ago a friend had the same thing happen but the rock went through his windshield and he was badly hurt. Since the damage to her car was mostly under the vehicle, it looks like a car with 2 flat tires. That is why the insurance company is giving her such a hard time.

Me with Daughter #1

When she called to report the accident the woman told her not to worry she had full coverage. She had it towed to a local place, where they took pictures, worked up an estimate, and contacted the insurance company.  They responded saying they would just replace the tires, which costs less than her deductible, and not address any of the other issues. She can’t drive it without the other things fixed.

After trying for days to get them to see reason they are now requiring the car to be towed to a shop of their choosing, which won’t happen until tomorrow or Tuesday. Plus they will not pay for a rental car until work is actually started on her car.

To say the least, she is frustrated and I feel so bad for her. She works so hard, in a very difficult job that she loves, for which I wish she was better compensated.  She is a wonderful mom to Kaden and Remi and shouldn’t have to put up with this crap. Sadly in our state, the roads are in terrible condition and the state holds no responsibility for any accidents or injuries so if the insurance company doesn’t take care of all the issues, it will be out of her pocket. Having insurance is a great thing until you actually try to use it. “Hey, insurance companies, news flash! Nobody’s perfect!” (sadly she doesn’t have Liberty Mutual)

  1. I feel very frustrated for you and your daughter. This is not how things should be. We should not have to fight for things we have paid for. It’s a tremendous waste of energy. If the company doesn’t make things right to your satisfaction, you should post the name of the company. I’m hoping that the company takes a different stance.

    Happy Mother’s Day to you!

  2. Happy Mother’s Day. I’m glad your daughter was uninjured, though I completely understand her frustration, we’ve been without a car for the last month waiting for repairs and it’s so inconvenient.

    Have a great reading week

  3. Happy Mother’s Day! I am so sorry to hear about your daughter’s car accident. What a nightmare dealing with insurance companies. I wonder if they just see dollar signs or if they have any idea how awful they are for all of us.

  4. I’m sorry to hear about your daughter’s accident… she is lucky she wasn’t hurt! Insurance companies can be so difficult. Hope it gets sorted out this week.

  5. Uff-da. Glad your daughter wasn’t hurt, but what a pain dealing with getting it all fixed. Hope it all gets straightened out in a good manner.

    Have a good reading week!
