So we had an interesting week this week.  We were hit by a dumptruck.  Not bad damage for being hit by a dumptruck right!? 

The most important thing--no one was hurt, Mimi and I were/are fine.  Not a scratch on us.  The insurance company shook their booties and literally had a check in my hand for all the damages within 24 hours. What!? That's so efficient.  A+ review for Progressive from this driver.  The car needs a new front bumper, front right panel, and a light assembly.  $1650 later---we'll see what she looks like when they fix her up.  I'm not going to lie, part of me wanted them to total the car, which would mean this Mamma would be getting a "new" to me car, but alas, they did not and the ol' mazda will continue to be our grocery getter for another year or so until we save cashola to buy me a subaru.....

So the insurance company has requested to replace my carseat for me.  This is pretty cool since the carseat wasn't even damaged.  They are going to take my Britax wizard and refund me the full price of a comprable seat.  They don't make the Wizard anymore, should I get the Advocate, the Boulevard or another Marathon?  We already have two other seats (the Marathon and Roundabout) the one in my car was actually our backup seat, but it was my favorite for long trips because her head didn't flop when she slept and she consequently slept longer.
