Car Accident

I am sad to report that Steven was in a car accident this morning.  Let me first say that he is ok.  Shaken, but doing ok.  He most likely will be sore tomorrow and will be a bit timid on the road for a while but we are so thankful that he was not physically injured.  Now, what about the car?  While we haven't received the official word from our insurance company, we strongly believe that the car will be totaled.  Here is a picture of the damage. 

To say that Steven is bummed wouldn't quite be the word.  He is really sad, frustrated and almost devastated.  This Jetta is more than a regular Jetta.  This was Steven's favorite car.  This car is a diesel which got EXCELLENT gas mileage.  He also recently installed some pretty cool headlights and a stereo.  He spent a lot of time working on his car and to have it taken away is a big bummer.  Sure, insurance is wonderful, but when your car is worth more to you than the monetary value it just stinks to let it go.  We are looking for a 'new' car and unfortunately a diesel may no longer in our price range due to our 'job transition'.  Bummer.  I guess these are the moments we just have to be thankful for what we have which is our lives, our family and our friends.  We will continue to move forward and keep you updated.
