Some days you should really not get out of bed.
Without going into TOO much detail, was in a wreck today. Nobody hurt, thank goodness, and not as much damage as could have been. Wonderful fun. Sunburnt from standing outside for a couple of hours while waiting to sign papers, etc. It was over 100ºF, well into heat stroke territory. Once I got to leave, I went straight to gulp down a half-gallon of water. Need to do something for the sunburn too I guess but it's not as bad as it could be. Will probably peel in a few more days is all.
Keep in mind, I don't own a vehicle because the engine blew on my car a few months ago. I only drive for work. So guess who's vehicle I was driving? Oh yeah... Boss's new van. There were yet more fun circumstances but since it was a collision involving insurance, fault, traffic tickets, blah blah blah, can't go into the particulars online.
I just remind myself that any accident on the freeway when you walk away with nobody hurt is a good accident.
I'm going to walk away from the computer for a while though, most definitely need to de-stress tonight!
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
