March Madness. Misfortunes, and More

It's 10:35 pm and normally, I am now in bed but I am trying to    meet my goal of finishing all my reviews this month.  This will be the last post  so I am happy to stay a little bit late.  Let me fill you in with what consumed  my March.  
  • Our daughter got sick twice this month.  Not sure if it was the flu but glad it did not last  very long although she got it twice.  
  • Another misfortune  happened on Friday the 13th.  Our Honda Accord was parked in front of our house and our neighbor  backed up on it and hit the left fender.  We did not know who did since it happened at night time but we suspected it was one of our neighbors as the dent has a maroon color  and it has a  square mark on the dented part.  

My husband called  the police to file a police report so we can    contact our insurance.  
The police came and investigated.  He asked my husband if he thinks the truck did it but my husband said no.  
My husband told the police of his suspicion that our other neighbor was the one who might have hit the car. The police then went to the other vehicle and he agreed that it might be it so he knocked on the door and talked to the vehicle owner. They admitted that they accidentally backed on it. The guy said that he left a note on our car but we never found anything. Luckily, his insurance agrees to pay for the repair and they gave my husband a temporary rental car to drive to work. 
We had our car back  on Friday and it looks  nice, the garage did a great job.  I am glad that our neighbor admitted to it because  the repair cost is $1,734.37, man that's painful in the   pocket!
 Other activities  included  the Festival of Nation where  our daughter was part of the choir of the school and they sung  some songs during the event.  This event was held at Millsop Community Center on March 21.  I will make another post for it.
 We  spent  some of our free times doing some Spring cleaning.  I put these kiddos to work, it's a team effort to clean the house.  
 The walls were done  few weeks ago so we  cleaned out  storage and displays.
Aside from cleaning, I was  occupied volunteering  at my children's school activities including book fair, race for education  preparation, serving lunches, and meetings.  Was also  busy  writing reviews.  If you can remember, I previously  reviewed some  products from "The Laundress".  They sent me again some samples, this time some laundry materials.  Alsp included in the  package was the scented vinegar but unfortunately, it was damaged  during the transit so it made a mess.  
Anyway, I used their signature detergent for  our regular laundry and used the delicate wash for the new  clothing that I bought.  I will be using the wool cashmere next time for some of our stuff with  wool.  I just wish that their samples are bigger than these packets lol.
Alrighty, thanks a lot for reading and for leaving your thoughts.  I can go to sleep now  knowing that I have done everything I supposed to do this month.  Tomorrow is a new month so  I will start my new goals.

Congrats on finishing your goals for March. I never make goals so there's nothing to finish for me. I'm glad that your car insurance came through for you and I totally don't believe the neighbor left a note.

Kathy said...

Sorry to hear about the car but glad to see things were figured out. Sounds like you finished all your goals for March. That's always great to hear!

Masshole Mommy said...

What a bummer about your car. Someone hit my car in a parking lot about a month after I got it and because my deductible is so high, I never fixed it.

Terri Ramsey Beavers said...

I'm so glad you found out who the culprit was who backed into your car and got it all squared away. I can't remember the last time I actually finished all of my goals for a week much less a month. I need to learn from you.

Ashley said...

I'm so sorry about your car! I'm glad it's getting fixed, though, and that the man who hit you admitted to and took responsibility for it with his insurance company. I hope April is a little calmer for you guys!

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle said...

Oh my. I'm so glad your neighbor fessed up! Body work can be so expensive! It's nice to see the kids helping out with the cleaning too. That's cute!

MikiHope said...

So glad you were able to find the neighbor who damaged your car! Hopefully your daughter will stay healthy for the rest of the year. It is now April--so March Madness is over--on to April Showers and Pretty Flowers!

Lisa B said...

Sounds like a busy month for you. I have been dealing with back issues and have not been able to do much for the last month. I hope you have a much better April.

Cara W said...

Oh wow! Sorry to hear about that car mishap you had. Hope April is a much better month for you.

Michelle Varga said...

Sorry to hear about the car! Sounds like you had quite a busy month! Last month was crazy busy for us too.

Nina Say said...

Oh no! I can't believe someone would do that. Sending good vibes for your daughter.

Jeanine said...

I'm glad your car got fixed and you didn't have to pay for it! Hope your daughter is feeling better and the flu or sickness steers clear for a while!

Friday the 13th is usually a great day for me. But I was driving to San Francisco with my friend who was visiting from Canada, now I didn't my car wrecked - but a huge rock hit my windsheild and sliced it. It was SO scary!! But luckily, we got it fixed asap.

I'm so sorry that someone backed into your car! That's such a crappy situation to be in. Especially since your neighbour kinda sneakily tried to duck out of it :(

Rochkirstin Santos said...

OMG that was a huge dent. You should have a video cam recording all night so you would know what really happened. We have that in the neighborhood.

Christina Aliperti said...

Doesn't it just feel great to accomplish your goals! It's a team effort to clean the house here too, it definitely cuts the amount of time it takes.

Liz Mays said...

Thank goodness for that auto insurance. Oh my gosh, car repairs are pricey as can be!

mail4rosey said...

I'm glad your neighbor admitted it too!! I had someone total my car once when it was sitting in my driveway. The person was held liable in court but only paid a couple of payments and that was it. nothing I could do but pay fees to go back to court, I just gave up on it.

Fiona said...

Wow, I can't believe the neighbour didn't even let you know that he had done that to your car, not very neighbourly at all! So strange that it happened on Friday the 13th too!

Roselynn Mercedes said...

That was definitely a bummer about your car, but I agree it was nice that your neighbor just admitted fault. Hope your daughter is feeling better and the flu bug goes away for good this month.

Cia Says said...

I am so happy that you accomplished all your goals. I am also really glad to hear that your neighbor admitted to damaging your car so that you would not have to pay for the repairs yourself. Wishing you the best on your next goals! :)

Raquel Mitchell said...

That is what our insurance for. Its good your neighbor admitted it was his fault but if the police officer approach them, they can get away from the responsibility. My car had a dent too at the right front mirror worth more than a thousand. Buti nalang covered with our insurance.

Ricci said...

Thank goodness your neighbor fessed up!! I watched someone side swipe my car in a parking lot...did damage all the way down the passenger side. It was terrible!!

Dawn McAlexander said...

You sure were luck that your neighbor owned up to it. We were similarly lucky a couple of years ago when someone in our neighborhood backed into our mail box and broke the post. The guy actually did leave a note on our door. Having honest neighbors makes me feel just a ltittle safer!

Joyce Duboise said...

Wow! You have been a busy mommy and wife. You have a a lot of fun (and not so fun) activities happening. I hope your little one is feeling better now. How unfortunate that your neighbor backed into your car. March Madness it was!

Ourfamilyworld said...

I am sorry your car was hit. It is so unfortunate. I hope April will be better for you and your family

Chrystal Mahan said...

I wonder why the neighbor didn't just come to your house to let you know he hit the car. If I accidentally hit someones car I would be so upset and try to make it right. I would be too scared to try and keep it a secret.

Cassie said...

So sorry about the damage to the car. That kind of stuff is never fun. At least the neighbor had to admit it was him and his insurance will cover it!

Autumn Blues Reviews said...

Sorry to hear about all th drama. Hope all works out well.

Ann B said...

Lets hope you have a uneventful April. I know what it is like to go outside and see your car with a big dent. It happened to me in a parking lot.

Sarah @ Must Have Mom said...

Wow, sorry to hear about your car! That's great that your neighbor admitted it though... and that he had insurance. That could have been really bad if he hadn't!

Nile Flores said...

That's not fun. At least the person was caught. These days people just hit and run. I've had this happen in the past and it sucks paying a premium on something I didn't do.

Peachy @ The Peach Kitchen said...

WOW! Such a busy March. I haven't done my Spring cleaning yet! Ang hirap kumilos ng 7 months preggy! Nakakaloka!
