Haven't blogged in a while. Still saving up. So far I've met 91% of my goal. I don't know about buying a house now. Some say now is a good time but I read somewhere that prices will bottom out 2011. It's such a big commitment though...it scares me. I hear coworkers complain about maintenance costs and issues all the time. Maybe I'm better off renting for now.

Need to vent...

I try to keep my stuff in good condition & it seems like the world just wants to ruin it (whatever it is). I went to the gym today and when I came back out to my car I found that someone had scratched the left side of my bumper (rear). Looks like someone's tire rubbed up against it. This has happened before, the first time the scratches were barely visible. This time there's more damage, paint's all scratched up. I know things like this will happen sooner or later but this just bothers me. People just have no respect, didn't even leave a note or anything!

I don't know if I should have it repainted, probably going to be very expensive. Maybe I should just leave it cause it will probably happen again!

    if it's just one panel, and your car is a generic colour for that type of make/model, then it *could* be worth considering repainting it. it will protect it from rust, and if you leave it (trust me!i know!) it will keep peeling and peeling.

    You might contact your insurance company to find out if there is anything they will do since there was no note...

    Houses can be expensive. You just have to weigh cost and time commitment to the tax deductions and security of having your own place. FOr some, renting is definately the preferred option. Do whats right for you!

    is there a video camera going on the area? you might be able to get a picture of the license plate.

    That is so frustrating, because it may not even cost more than your insurance deductible, but it's got to be taken care of or it can lead to a worse situation with the paint. I hope you can find the culprit with a video camera, maybe, like debtfreeme suggested?
