Lock in that $404.87 insurance claim

Last month at a red light, someone hit my bumper. Minor scratch. Could realistically just take a nice paint to fix it.

I filed an insurance claim and then went to get the car checked out. I finally got my check for $404.87. I didn’t think the damage would be that much but they might be assuming that I get a new bumper.

Now what do I do? The damage isn’t so bad that I need to get the bumper fixed. Do I just hold on to this money and use it for something else? Maybe yeah. It could pay for part of my vacation.

My car got hit today

It was a minor accident. In fact, it was so minor that it was nothing.

I was at a red light when I felt a bump. It was this SUV that had hit my bumper. We both pulled over to a quiet street to assess the damage. The top part of my bumper has scratches on it, paint chipped. And the force cracked my license plate frame.

We exchanged our information. I took out my Triple A membership card and not my insurance card. Oops. Wrong one. But I filed a claim with the driver’s insurance company and now I will have to take my car in to assess the damages. It shouldn’t be too much but still, there is not a scrape on my bumper with paint chipped off.

I’d like to disappear for a while

I’d like to go away and go camping. Maybe then I can just get away from my responsibilities and just be free.

I would like to be away from it all, even for a weekend. Wouldn’t that be nice? I miss those days.

Can I have it back?

More thoughts and thoughts

I don’t know this has become one of the busiest months for me. I have not been able to┬áconsistently write for my sports blog. This blog isn’t getting much attention either. Even my final installment of trolling stone may or may not happen.

The busyness isn’t all that crazy really. I still am working the same hours as last month. But the move to a new office drains me because of the commute. Not only that, I just don’t have the motivation to write. Maybe this is a sign of me growing up and maturing into something else? I don’t think that’s the best way to describe it. But then again, that could exactly be it.

But I do know during Labor Day weekend I am hosting a nice BBQ so I am really excited for that. This is the first time I am hosting a party on my own with people that are visiting my place for the first time. I am excited.

Hey when are you writing in the green book?

Happy birthday, Green Eggs and Lam

Wow, it’s been five years! I can’t believe I’ve maintained this blog for this long and not┬áchanged much. I haven’t blogged as frequently as I did compared to five years ago, but this is still my avenue of sharing my adventures and thoughts.

To another five more years!

Where has my creativity gone?

I think that one of the reasons why I am not blogging as much is because of how little time I have to sit down and just think. And by thinking, I mean creatively think. I have opinions on many things but I don’t feel compelled to share them as much. Especially with my creative writing.

Last night I was thinking about the two Rolling Stone articles I wrote and debated whether or not I should try to write another one or just let it go. I had planned to do one a while back but I scrapped it because the story wasn’t to my liking. The idea now is maybe I don’t want to write it and just share what I had written. Or maybe I go completely in a new direction.

One thing I do want to do is try to get some photography in. Of course I have no real experience so it’s just finding some cool things to share like the one above. It’s not great but it’s something I hope I can perfect. Just to come up with some cool pics.

There’s a lot of changes now that has stunted my creativity. I think I truly need to be inspired but I don’t have it in me. At least not now. Maybe it will come soon. I do want to write one more Rolling Stone article or maybe paint a bobblehead again. I need to be creative again. I just have to find it.

Finally a time to blog and not get caught up in things

For the first time in a while, I can finally relax. This past week or so I was so caught up in busyness that I never really got to blog as much as I wanted to this month.

Done with VBS as it took a lot out of me to watch the kids and get sunburn on my scalp.

Done with V3con in which I no longer have to stress about writing sponsorship posts and working through social media.

Done with Family Promise’s overnight stay on Sunday.

Welcome to being the new official prayer leader.
