I hope I'm missing something here.
The lawyer got the entire $50,000 from her insurance & $100,000 from my insurance. So, if I read the chack correctly, he will get $51k plus & I will get $31k plus & the rest will be in "trust" until the final rendering of the bills. I don't want to insinuate that he is misleading in his estimates, but it is puzzling to me.

Sounds like it would be good to ask your lawyer. Not to attack, just to understand.

Trust your instincts, NY2 gal, they are correct 80% of the time, or so I've heard.......

I don't know that I'd call it intuition, but one of my roommates gave me some good apartment-hunting advice (this applied especially when moving in with roommates, but I'd guess it applies generally). He said, if you go into a place and feel like you've just come home, you can stop looking. You'll be happy there. On the other hand, if you go into a place and feel uncomfortable, keep looking. You'll almost certainly not be happy there.

That is really great advice. When I was visiting W-S a couple of weeks ago I went apartment hunting. When I was being shown one, I had an instant "connect" feeling with it. But because I am who I am, I thought I had to keep looking "for something bigger and better." So a few days later I found one like that. But then it was going to cost me a lot more money. But I paid for the application, left with a fistful of information, and drove home feeling good. After I got home I started to really think about how that extra expense was going to affect me. Then I started to think about the one I felt connection with. Changed my mind and am signing up to move into the one I can afford and I feel quite peaceful about it.
Wow, so good to pay attention to how we feel about something.

Very true. I wrote void on the check and asked for an accounting of the monies. This is one survey from customer service that would flunk.

Great news NYgal! So excited for you.

Don't take any crap, meo. Give 'em hell!

I am getting less worried and looking forward to the move. DH is really relieved that daughter and BF can do the big haul. He felt so much better yesterday.

So good that we completely dismantled the tractor that we've been working on for the last two months. All the good parts are clean and ready to go up on ebay.

One of his buddies stopped up on his Harley and visited for awhile, It was nice to see DH feeling good.

Hi! I haven't been around much lately, obviously, but have managed to read here every day. Gads, but all of you are so busy these days! Moving, starting a new life and dealing with health issues too. I'm glad your dh is feeling better and hope that continues.

That's pretty much how I felt when I was looking for a house to buy. Of all the ones I looked at THIS one is the one I felt the most comfortable in from the get go. Just pulling into the driveway I thought the house was so cute and liked it. Once I got inside I was, at least, smart enough to not let paint colors...or lack of it!...and furnishings block my visions for the place. I'm still happy with my choice and working on making it 'my own'.
