Accidents happen.

This week has been insanely busy for me; my mother is in town visiting this week, I have a new puppy, and I’m in the fast lane research-wise. Just when you thought life couldn’t get any more complicated, it does.

Ergo, the latest drama in my life:

Notice how both the tyres on the right side of the car are flat?

I let my mum drop me off at school and borrow my car for the day. I’m not sure if she’s just super short and can’t see well over the dash board, or isn’t used to the rough roads; whatever it is, she managed to blow out the two right side tyres of my car.

Fortunately, she called AAA to tow the car to the dealer. Unfortunately, the rims of the car, the tyre pressure gauges, and other wheel damage have likely occurred (see photos).

I called my insurance company Geico (since it will likely be well over $1000 for repairs) and they hooked me up with a rental vehicle and with a $250 deductible my car will be repaired. They made it really easy and everything has been quite convenient. I was incredibly overwhelmed with all of the mayhem of yesterday.

I’m just lucky to have my mum safe. Needless to say, she’s not driving around Bloomington by herself anytime soon.
