After my great “I love everything!” post today I went to meet my mom for lunch. On the way I a car hit me from behind at a red light. They hit me hard.
Then, they drove away. WTF.
Did I mention I was in my mom’s car?
Yes. God has a way of keeping me in reality when I am getting a little too happy about unimportant things.
But, I’m okay and the car is okay. Only minor damage to both. I have a slight headache, so I might be a little sore in the neck tomorrow, but I am fine 🙂
I did eventually get to my mom’s work and we ate a quick lunch together. My mom is a teacher so she couldn’t just postpone lunch until I got there.
I went home and had my brother look at the car – he said it would be okay and just needed to get a new light bulb because the accident broke it somehow? The bumper is a little loose now though too.
But, I didn’t even realize it and started emotionally eating. I grabbed a handful of chocolate chips and then these candies…. that’s when I realized I needed to stop and walk away. And I did 🙂 Okay, maybe after another handful of choc chips.
Who’s that girl that takes pictures of flowers at Costco?
Dinner was boxed Indian food – which I swear tastes better than it sounds 🙂 After this picture my mom brought out this fancy wheat bread from a bakery at her retreat. So good!
After dinner I unwound by eating cookies. And that’s when I realized I am a cookie-aholic. I am glad I’m not an alcoholic, but cookies are more readily available and can be just as dangerous for some people.
I feel really bad about getting in an accident in my mom’s car (even though it was not my fault). I should talk about this with a friend and not avoid my feelings with my frenemy = Amos (as in Famous Amos).
Anyone else have a major fail today? I hope not!
But feel free to vent in the comments 🙂
