I'm guessing this is how I looked at 3:30 am when I got up to take care of business, and forgotten that I left the laundry basket in the bathroom!!! I'll be looking for the bruises. I had to laugh at myself, once I got over the shock of what just happened. I was stuck ... I tried rocking back and forth but in such a small bathroom it would have been pretty easy to have rocked my head into the toilet, ha! I finally just rolled my body, and the basket to one side, and rolled on out on all fours, then got up! What a video that could have been, ha!
I've been under the weather for a couple of days. As I tell everyone who asks, "It could always be worse." I'm such a pansy for pain. And I wouldn't call a cold, allergies, or flu as pain - just discomfort, in comparison.
God help me if I ever have to endure something like my friend, Dean. He's gone through two rounds of chemo and one operation over the past few months (four, I think). He's back in the hospital . . . lack of nourishment, dehydrated, and weak.
Please send your prayers and positive thoughts out for my friend, his family, loved ones!
I'm not going to do any repair or replacements on my car. I'll be trading this one in, and finding another vehicle. I just can't justify doing anything about the damage. Something needs to be done so it doesn't get worse, and rot away ... but not by me. I would rather use that kind of bucks and just get a new, old car! At least it's at the beginning of spring, and not coming into winter. It is my hope that something comes available before winter months roll around again! The car is still mechanically sound, but I am not "in love" with this car. I don't want to continue to look at the stupid exterior damage that has been done to this car since I've owned it, at the fault of others! Onward, and upward ... and life goes on, doesn't it?!
I talked with my insurance company. If I turn in a claim, there would have to be a thorough investigation (technically, a hit and run). It happened in Council Bluffs and I did not document it with the local police. I was ready to get on the highway. In hindsight, I probably should have reported it there, before I left for home.
In order to have a thorough investigation, it would mean bringing my friends into it - my friend has just endured two rounds of chemo and one operation - for esophageal cancer. No matter what has happened to me cannot compare to what they have been and are continuing to go through.
Even though we feel we know who did this, it's a moot point; he won't admit to it! Under the circumstances, I will 'grin and bear it' (so to speak), and extend him grace, though I would rather slap the crap out of him! *smile*
A local body man has provided me with two estimates - one 'doing it right' and one if he just fixes it 'cosmetically'. $3,200 to do it right or approximately $1,000 (ball park) to just make it look better. I am seriously thinking of trading it in, now, before the rusting begins, and let them do the body work. Of course, trade in value will be affected ... sure, duh!!! So we'll see. I just can't justify doing anything, except maybe get me another car. If I don't repair or replace, it will just rust away and will not have any trade in value, later on. tsk, tsk ...
I've been talking to my insurance people to lower my rates ... hmmm ... there won't be any changes made now until I decide what I am going to do with my car. Sad deal ... and life goes on, doesn't it?
Who is this little girl?
I am . . .
