Bad Day Yesterday
Sunday, June 24, 2012
Yesterday started out a beautiful, sunny Saturday morning. We decided to go down to the new Menard's for the things for the new garden. We were going straight through an intersection when an eighteen-year old making a left turn failed to yield and hit the front passenger side.
Everyone is fine. Our only car, isn't. I would estimate it will probably be in the body shop for about a week. We are insured, so insurance will take care of most of the damages.
The timing couldn't possibly be much worse. It occurred after all car rental places have shut down for the weekend. We will need to take a taxi, to the car rental place on Monday. We will be late to work on an already short week. I know this is probably silly, but I don't want to drive a rental, to the hospital each day. I don't want the hassle of dealing with all of this while my daughter has surgery on Thursday. I certainly, don't want to take her home in the rental car.
Okay, as I read above, I realize I am tired and whiny. So, time to count my blessings. Big one, I am glad no one was hurt. The car CAN be repaired. My daughter wasn't in the car. My son, was but he's OK. We didn't feel like cooking dinner, so my new healthy body, biked itself up to the restaurant. In fact, we went on a nice long bike ride.
