Settlement Check Finally Arrives

June 16th, 2007 at 12:49 pm


DS#2's settlement check for his car accident finally arrived this week. It's been almost 3 months since the accident. What a long, complicated process it has been.

First thing he did was pay off the car. The previous owner has been extremely patient while waiting for his money for a car that doesn't exist anymore. He included a $50 bonus for that reason.

Next, he paid us back for the money we loaned him for his tux for the prom and the car registration.

The last thing to pay for are the repairs he'd made to the car the day it was totalled. Thank goodness everyone has been willing to wait for their money!

He wants the remaining money put into an ING or Emigrant savings account for the summer while he's at camp so he can earn some decent interest on it. He'll use the money to buy another car when he has been seizure-free for 6 months and can get his driver's license back.

I am glad to have this all taken care of now. I don't like owing anyone money and felt responsible for the whole thing. It's been at the back of my mind constantly for 3 months.

    Oh the relief you must feel. Yaa! Glad to see that everything worked out and know what you mean when you say that you don't like owing anyone.

    The kids really do start getting it. I can see that your son is learning from you. Good job!

    Great relief and you've raised a fine son who took care of so much at once. Kudos to his parents.
