"What else could go wrong?"


Because trust me......there is always something else that could happen!

I don't know if I ever blogged about my new car. We bought a new SUV in December because of all the traveling I am having to do. It is our first new car in a long time and I am very proud of it. Well.....yesterday morning I was going to meet a friend for breakfast and two Bassett Hounds decided to take a morning stroll on a very busy street. I braked for the dogs but the guy behind me was not as quick and he rear ended me! It was strange because I had time to look in the mirror and think, he is not going to stop, I hope I don't hit the dogs when he hits me! The dogs were fine...the last I saw of them they were trotting off without a care in the world. I was not hurt, but my new car does have a crimp in the back bumper now!

If you have to be in an accident, this guy was the one to do it with, he was very polite, very concern that I was okay. I don't think we are going to have any trouble with getting him to pay. He admitted that he was not paying close enough attention. We called out the police and got a police report and exchanged all the info. We got the estimate for the repairs today and unfortunately he did about $650 worth of damage.

In a way it was quite freeing because I had been having a feeling that we would have a wreck in that new car, so I was half way expecting it. Now it has the first scratch, or dented bumper on it so we can go on with life!

BUT that is not all that happened this weekend. I took the dog out this morning and was outside without my shoes on (big mistake!) I had been chasing her around the yard and I bounded up the stairs to go back in the house and stubbed my toes on the door stoop! At least I thought I had just stubbed my toes, I looked down and my middle toe was pointing due West. Toes are supposed to point North, not 1/2 North and 1/2 West. Apparently I dislocated my toe! So I reached down and straightened it out. It is turning a really pretty shade of purple now!

It is almost a game now for us, What is going to happen next? Oh well, at least I haven't lost my sense of humor ......YET!

o no!
I was in my first *collision* yesterday in years--I was in a parking lot, and I don't know who hit who, but my car is dinged!

So, I feel for you--on top of everything else you have right now.
