I think it is time to post again.

Last Wednesday I hit and killed a deer. And I posted about it. Most of you actually thought that I was saddened by the death of the deer, but I was not. I was more saddened by what the deer did to me. To my new shiny car. I got the damage estimated at $4319.39.
And more than the damage done, I was wondering why did it happen. A good friend gave me a scripture, and that didn’t help any. All I can say is that it is done, and I can’t worry about why it happened. Questioning why isn’t going to change anything.

Also driving back from getting my car in the first place, down in Santa Ana, I noticed it over-heating. It had no coolant. So on Friday, the mechanic told me that I had no external leaks. I thought that was what happened, since there was a recall on some of the parts of the car, cooling system specific. He told me that I had a head gasket problem, and they needed to be replaced.

Added to the stress of being slightly understaffed at work last week was: 

  1. Arranging the time to go to the mechanic’s forty minutes away.
  2. Hitting a deer on my way to the mechanic’s and spending my time wandering around and checking out my car to see if it was drivable.
  3. Rescheduling the mechanic’s
  4. Filing a report with my insurance
  5. Adding my car to my insurance
  6. Having the insurance company say that the car is not on my insurance.
  7. Taking time off work and going to the mechanic’s
  8. Him taking a little long than expected…
  9. Him telling me that my headgaskets needed to be replaced.

Yeah. Lots of fun.

But for the good news…

  1. Headgasket replacement was free.
  2. The deer is dead.
  3. I get my car tomorrow

    not cool. not cool that your car got smashed and not cool that you killed a deer. but i know how you feel about questioning why things like that have to happen. it’s really frustrating.
