It was another ‘marathon’ day! I was supposed to get to the market in the early morning (usually done in 30 min) to get fruits – but when I get down to our car, I thought ‘did it rain yesterday?’ as the back windshield appeared to be ‘wet’ (it was actually cracked)! I just entered the car and before I switch on engine, close the front door – and I heard the shattered sound! 😱😱😱
I quickly came down to look – the back windshield was basically shattered. Speechless, really. Quickly took a photo of it and ran back home to tell my hubby – I was still speechless when I saw him (while he thought the car ran out of battery) – I was wordless but just have to show him the photo I took!
Etc, etc….he was then busy calling his usual mechanic and the auto insurance – while I busy prepare the kids (as Noelle has music class and we were good to attend hubby’s company family day). We need to send (and bring back) the car to fix TODAY as most mechanics (not to mention authorized panels only) will be close on Sunday! So, it was pretty mad rush! We could only catch a breather after Noelle went into her class!
Then we ate lunch nearby before going to the family day. And managed to collect the car after the carnival!
Yes, we were ‘bad luck’ again! Still clueless on why it cracked – many possibilities- on purpose or accidental – and out of the whole lot of cars, only ours! Whatever it is – no prove, ‘blame’ also no use! Just fortunately – it was noticed on a non public holiday Saturday when mechanics still open (or else the car will be left ‘open’).
It cost RM380 for the repair – but it will be a ‘pay and claim’ policy (just need to reconfirm again with the insurer that it covers the back windscreen – which the authorized panel mechanic says it usually does).
We could have avoided the ‘marathon’ – if we choose to forgo either music class or/and family day – but surely the kids (especially Noelle) will be disappointed – as the plan was told to her (we usually tell her our plans for the next day before she sleeps). We told her we are going to another ‘funfair’ (she has been mesmerizing the funfair organized by Sunway Serene months back).
Anyway, after all the marathon – we told ourselves – it would be a ‘memory’ that would be told to the kids when they grow up (and they will be 🙄🙄🙄 ‘oh gawd, not again !🤦🏻♀️) in the future! Also probably, ‘life is too mundane/routine’ on a daily basis and thus we were given some ‘excitement’ on the weekend! 🤣
And because of this, we still have the chores to do tomorrow – grocery shopping, etc ! Plus we miss our night out today!
