Ever have one of those weeks? You know, when nothing seems to go right?
My week started out like that. Woke up on Monday morning feeling blah. Not awful but not right. Marathon hangover? (actually, that would be marathon spectator hangover) I made it through the day okay with lots of extra rest and thought "perhaps I dodged a bullet!" Except when I woke up on Tuesday, I felt much worse. BLAH. Definitely coming down with the plague.
Tuesday I did even less than on Monday including skipping all my training. Trust me when I say, that pretty much NEVER happens. But I wanted to try to nip this bug in the bud. Other than going to teach my class and doing a little computer work, I laid in bed ALL DAY LONG.
That is until around 9:00 pm at night I got a call from O. He was driving home from a late night at school (varsity letter ceremony) and this happened:
GULP! He is NOT HURT. Nor was the other driver. So that is all that matters. I thanked God over and over for that! But our car? Totalled. And so Wednesday was a mess of insurance (State Farm has been awesome) and getting a rental car and because they determined the car was totalled, buying a new car. As luck would have it, we JUST paid off this car (literally...like the last payment was this month) and were looking forward to a few years of no car payments. But that was not meant to be. I'm not complaining though - my husband is in one piece and that's all I care about!
Luckily today things started looking up! :) I woke up feeling much better and got back to training and a day of work at the hospital. O too got back to work and after work, bought us a new car! He doesn't mess around! :) Although neither of us are picky with cars. We don't care about color or special features of if the seats heat or not - we care only about durability/reliability and price. And the new VW dealership in town was looking for some business! Our very first car was a VW (first thing we bought together as a married couple) and that car lasted us for 7+ years (of LOTS of driving) so we are going back! And we are totally living the high life because for the FIRST TIME EVER (out of 4 cars we've had) we got a car with power windows!!!! (I think this is only because they simply don't make VW Jettas without power windows anymore :).
And so goes life. All is well and God is good! And tomorrow is Friday! :) Have a great weekend everyone!!!! :)
