I will start with Baby Boot Camp. I’ve had some comments from readers who are thinking of doing the same, and let me tell you, it was worth it! With the exception of one night, the boys have slept through the night every night since I did it! Sweet bliss! They still put up a good show when we put them in their cribs, but I’ve noticed once the door is shut, they know it’s time as they are quiet and go to bed like good little monsters. I don’t know why I didn’t put them through boot camp sooner… :)
Next is the December 7th accident. We got the estimate on the Pacifica, and it is around $4,600! I didn’t think it was that bad, but I guess it is. Luckily, my insurance is good and they’ve already sent the check for repairs and we’ll take it to the shop Monday. They’ve also already cut a check for new car seats — again! — and will arrange for a rental. Too bad it’s going to take a good 2 weeks for the vehicle to be repaired, and I wonder if Christmas is going to slow it down even more? I hope not! Continue reading »
Today, the insurance company for the lady who hit me on October 22nd called and tried to tell me that they feel I was equally at fault for the accident because I could had been “more attentive” and “traveling at a safer speed.” I laughed out loud when he told me that. He even went on to ASK me what the speed limit was and how fast I was going. How can you determine my speed was unsafe if you don’t even know what my speed was?! Ridiculous!!
After a good argument with the insurance agent, he said he would have to review the case with his manager and would call me back by the end of the day. And, of course, he did not call me back. So I just finished up a nice little fax for him with all of the reimbursements they owe me as of right now (which is $1,199.40) and kindly let them know I will gladly get a lawyer and also go for lost time and wages if they can’t confirm these reimbursements and give me a date of check issue right away.

Before I tell you about Baby Boot Camp, I’d like to say that we are not too poor to afford a Christmas tree! I’m not sure what all I said about not having one in previous posts, but apparently, it came across as us being too broke for a tree. Oops! That isn’t the case — I’m just to CHEAP to want to spend more than $75 or so on one. :)
Now that I’ve cleared that up, it’s time to talk about Baby Boot Camp. The boys are 13+ months old. They do not sleep through the night (if you do not have twins, insert your comment about how so-and-so was sleeping through the night since 8 weeks; if you have twins, nod your head in sympathy). Some days, I think they will never sleep through the night. But dang it, I am trying my hardest this week to correct that.
