This is just not my month.

As I was going to my dad's shop to hand him the keys to grandpa's house, I had an accident. Woohoo.

A car was blocking my view (and the road) and I was inching forward to see the road when, bam. I hit an old lady. (Why is it always an old lady) Promptly, I parked, got out of the car, started shaking and broke down in tears. However, I was lucky. Our family lawyer and a police officer saw it and they saw that it wasn't my fault. The car that was blocking the road and view immediately wanted to get out of the scene, but thank God, the cop was on him and gave him a ticket for causing the accident.

Still, since the ones involved in the actual hit were the old lady and I, we're the ones that have to do the insurance thing. Thankfully, everybody was very nice and they understood that it was the van's fault. I can't say that I'm happy, but at least it didn't get worse. (Because it could have.)

Cars breaking down, relatives with broken bones, work, and this. It's just not my time of the year.

Right now, I'm sort of sedated. I'm not anxious or crazy at all. I guess I think: well, that's all now. Nothing more. But I'm lucky. It could've been worse. There could've been no witnesses and then where would I be?

Dad was very understanding and he helped calm me down (I was still weeping and shaking). I thought he would be all upset and angry, but he wasn't. He actually cheered me up a bit. Wow. I guess he was just happy I was okay and things weren't really that bad.

I'm going out for a jog...I need it.

Awww I'm sorry! That sounds so awful! Everything just seems to be compounded for you. I almost couldn't believe it when I was reading this entry. Anyway, I hope you feel better. I'm glad things are working out. Do you get a break sometime soon?

"Holy Golden Piss of Christ"?! Holy fuckin' Jesus Christ dude. Where did you get that from? Reveal the source!!

I'm with K-lo on this one: move to her house! Dito Stella! Was it serious? Is she ok? Is she at the hospital? You were very lucky the police was there. I'm sorry all this is happening to you. That can only mean that next year will be better :)
