a potentially expensive mistake

I’m in the middle of drafting a post, where I talk about finally having some extra money. The new house bills are leveling out and life is getting back on track. And then I ran into the wall in my parking garage.

Ran into may be overstating it a bit. But my car and the wall of the parking garage were intimately acquainted for a few brief seconds. The result is a scratch on my front bumper that is bigger than my hand.

For the most part my car is nice and shiny. I got it used and it’s a 2006. I don’t need it to look like something from Pimp My Ride, but I want to maintain the cars value. I also hope to drive it for at least 5 more years and want it to be in good shape.

The car is overdue for a checkup (oil change, etc) so we'll see what the dealership says when I drop it off.

What was the result of your trip to the dealer? Were you able to fix it without spending a ton?

I procrastinated yet again. I went to a composting class I signed up for a while back that made going to the dealer yesterday impossible. I'm going to schedule an appointment for one night this week and flex my time at work.
