Happy Monday


How was the weekend? 

Mine was OK.  I got a lot done. 

I took Friday off from work so that I could deal with my life.  Sometimes, you need a day for that.  And I picked a doozy because it was in the mid 70's and absolutely beautiful. 

First up, Lola had to go to the Vet for her annual checkup - with predictable behavior.  More about that later. 

Then, we had a little furniture delivery and I'll tell you all about that later this week, too!

Then - well then I decided to run over to my favorite second hand store to mess around for a little bit and when I was leaving I backed the car into a pole. 

Yeah - I cussed. 

What I haven't mentioned here yet is that last Sunday I went out to run some errands and somebody hit the side of my car and drove away - leaving me with a check to write. 

And after Friday - I have two checks to write.  Dang!  I'm beginning to think I should stay home. 

I've never had two dings in my life, let alone two in a week. 

And I have to tell you that after I backed into the pole I spent a fair amount of time on Friday castigating myself, for which I am now sorry and ashamed. 

I wonder why it's so hard for us to forgive ourselves.  Nobody's perfect and I dinged the car.  But I yelled at myself as I would never have yelled at anyone else.  So I had to apologize. 

So on Saturday I took the Beans to the spa, ran to Target and Petco and then up to B & R Body Shop for an estimate.....


I had to take a migraine pill. 

But, you know it is what it is.  They do great work (they fixed my Mazda after some idiot hit me) and did an excellent job.  I think they've given me a fair estimate and they're throwing in a rental car for me - which I appreciate.  I'm dropping it off on Tuesday morning and he thinks they can get it back to me by Wednesday afternoon.  So keep your fingers crossed that all goes as planned.  I'm ready to get the problem fixed and behind me. 

I've been a little blue this weekend.  Not sure why.  But I'm hoping it passes.  I think I've spent enough time being sad. 

And I'm ready for full blown spring.

  1. I'm so sorry about the dings to your new car...and the bill that follows. We have all been there- doesn't it seem like when it rains it pours sometime?? But thankfully, you (and your sweet Beans) were not harmed, the damage to your car is pretty minimal and you have a good garage to fix everything for you (and at a fair price). I hope that you are being kind to yourself and are feeling a little less blue now, my dear. It's a new week and things will get better.

  2. Ughh. I hear you. I did something similar, only triple the cost to repair. And yes, I was mad at myself, too.

  3. I felt like it was me who had written this post. I hurt the baby Benz. I didn't write about it, but I hurt her/him/it. I was so hard on myself. Really, really hard. Harder than I would have ben on a friend if they had done it. It was an accident. I backed into something. I'm human. It happens. I've got to get to the body shop. I'm afraid that when they give me the estimate I'm going to scold myself again. Thanks for the reminder that I really shouldn't. It happens.

    Here's to happier days and no more dings :)
