Drama at Casa de Flamenco

I didn't post yesterday; I'm disappointed because I'm really enjoying getting into the habit of writing on here daily. Believe me, it wasn't by choice. We've had quite a bit of drama here so I wasn't in the mood for writing (and I certainly didn't have time for it).

My husband was on his way to play at a wedding on Sunday morning when he was in an accident. The car he was driving (his mom's) was struck in the rear. By a DRUNK/STONED driver! Can you believe it? Here it is, 10 a.m. on a Sunday and some lady is drunk and hits my husband. Fortunately, my husband's injuries do not appear to be severe. He's got some neck and back pain but it certainly could have been much worse. The driver of the car was arrested at the scene, and her car was impounded. My mother-in-law's vehicle has damage to the trunk and bumper, and of course the insurance people always take longer than expected to resolve these things. Oh, and here's the bonus: the driver of the vehicle that hit my husband gave the arresting officer her insurance information--and according to that insurance company, she doesn't have insurance with them!

So we are in the middle of dealing with all sorts of insurance people, doctors, lawyers, Indian chiefs (just kidding), and trying to navigate with one vehicle. We're still waiting for the insurance company to give my MIL a rental car, so I'm driving her and my husband to work and my daughter to her therapy appointments. Hopefully the rental situation will be settled today so I'll have one less person to drive around.

I'm just so grateful that my husband wasn't more seriously hurt in this accident; the car thing is quite low on my list of concerns, although I don't want my MIL to be inconvenienced by all this either.

I forgot to mention that my husband's $10,000 concert guitar was in the trunk of the car at the time of the accident. It appears to be working fine, although we're going to have it looked at to make sure there is not structural damage. My husband is more worried about his "baby" than himself.

Thanks, Lynn. I'll let you know. All seems fine right now, so I'm hoping that my hubby will be back to normal in a day or so.
