Going In With Your back Against The Wall

There Are Times You Can't Win

You have to keep trying

Even if the best we can do is break even

Recently my wife and I got into a car accident

We recently heard back from the claims adjuster

They found our car totaled

Because of it's age

It was a 2012 Nissan Sentra

We well maintained it over the years

We bought it used with 40,000 miles on it

We just hit 336,336 miles on it recently

So excited this car is going to be good to us


They came back with a settlement of $2,500 minus our deductable

We went car shopping and found nothing under $7,000 that looked descent

A bank doesn't want to lend you money on a car

That is over ten years old and over 100,000 miles

So we have to take a loss

We got hit in the back side panel

All this doesn't matter

You now have to shop around and buy a car

We have had no car payment for the past three years

So we did all we can

We have to take our losses on the chin

On the bright side we are both o.k.

Our car protected us when we needed it most

Moving on is the only thing we can do

We have rental on our insurance

So the new Nissan Sentras are fun to drive

They also have a hefty price tag of about $23,000

Out of our price range

We make the best of the situation

We have been handed

One day we will look back

When our day is doing well

No car payment is due

Our car will be ours once again

Riding safe and towards the wind

So we can feel the breeze

Tease and please us to no end
