Happy Monday, everyone!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend; despite my car accident right before Thanksgiving, I had a somewhat relaxing weekend. I did eat a ton of turkey and yam though, which brings me endless amounts of joy :) It was crazy to have 4 days off of work, that’s for sure!
This quote really hit home for me today. As I wrote above, I got into a car accident right before Thanksgiving and it has been one of the most stressful times I’ve had in my life. I was at a full stop when a guy crashed into me at 65 mph on the freeway. I know that worse things could have happened, but I’ve never been in a car accident and it was the most horrifying thing. Just like my Mom said, it was the best situation in a bad situation because a police car was right there as it happened and he had the chance to pull over this guy right then and there. I have a sneaking suspicion that I would not have been so lucky if the police wasn’t there seeing as the guy who crashed into me was driving without a license! The CHP Officers (California Highway Patrol) were SO nice to me as I hysterically sobbed in my car; I appreciated them so much.
So anyway, my car got towed this morning and I got a rental car to start off the week. I’m now sporting a Chevy Cruze for the next week or so and hoping for the best. My car is an old gal but it has so much sentimental value to her; we've lived in 4 different states together, got through college together and on top of it all it was a gift from my Grandfather. Sigh.
I really needed this quote. I just need to let it go right now and let nature take its course. My neck and shoulders are so tense, I can barely get any sleep and I’m so incredibly irritable with Adam (which I feel horrible for since he’s been nothing but supportive) – but now that my car is in the hands of a professional, I just need to let, freaking, go.
