Poor Goldie Honda has a boo boo!

With all of our many blessings we have been having lately I've kind of been waiting for something bad to happen. I'm just not used to having so many great things happen all at once with very little bad things thrown in there. I'm not a pessimist, or looking for something bad in my life, it just seemed to be the way my life would go. Kind of just what I've been used to I guess.
Well, something bad happened last night. Not horrible, just slightly inconvenient. I got rear ended and t-boned on my way home from work. It wasn't a horrible wreck, no one was seriously injured, thank goodness. It was a 4 car pile up, 2 cars were totaled, mine wasn't. I was the only one not in a regular car, I was in the CR-V, so I was the biggest car. The only damage is a big dent in the drivers side door. It wasn't my fault, so someone else's insurance will pay to get it fixed. Poor Goldie Honda.
Surprisingly, no one's airbags went off during all of this. While this might sound like a bad thing, it was a big blessing for me. We got a letter in the mail a few weeks ago saying that if our car still has the original air bag that it needs to be replaced. It was recalled because pieces of metal have been reported coming through the air bag on deployment. A little scary? Yes. I got lucky. I'm definitely counting my blessings for this. My Mom has really been watching out for me and keeping me safe.
The only thing wrong is the usual stiffness and soreness expected after a car wreck. Also, I have mild panic attacks when I drive now. Haha! I'm a baby, I know. I keep hearing the crunch noise and cringing. On my way to work this morning I got stopped by almost all 13 lights between my house and work. I thought I might just die. I just stared intently in my rear view mirror, not daring to blink. I would tap my breaks so my lights would flash just to make sure everyone knew I was coming to a stop. Haha! I'm a nerd.

On a different note, today is my Mom's Birthday, so here's a shout out to her! Happy Birthday Mommy! I miss you and think of you everyday. Thank you for being there for me, even when you can be here for me. I know you are having a blast playing with all your grand kids that have yet to get their mortal bodies. I love you lots! - Sister Sue.

That is all.

Love love love love love!
