You know, as far as Monday’s go, I’ve had better. Actually, yesterday started out really well. I was having a fabulous morning– getting lots of stuff done at work and I was excited about a new project I was going to start in the afternoon. I was heading home for lunch to pick up my tax info (I had a tax appt. in the afternoon.) That’s when the afternoon took a turn for the worse…

I was stopped on East River Road waiting to turn left into my parking lot when I was hit from behind, and then I was hit again. I think the babe in the Mercury Van hit me, and then a third little blue car hit the van which in turn hit me again. I have no idea– i didn’t see it coming. The impact was so much that it caused my glasses to fly off!

my poor car...

I felt pretty jarred up and my neck was hurting afterwards so I went to the ER. Thankfully, it was nothing more than an acute neck strain. I’m really sore and stiff today– my head, neck and upper back hurts, and my arms hurt like I had been lifting weights. I’m fortunate that it wasn’t more serious, and I’m glad my car did what it was supposed to– keep me safe– but now I have to go thru the drama and hassle of getting it fixed and dealing with insurance companies.

my poor car :(

I might be taking it easy with posting this week while I rest up a bit and catch up with work and take care of my car/insurance issues. Thanks for your well wishes and your understanding!

Take care!
