This year has started off to be a wee bit of a shit show. I was in a car accident at the start of January. My not even 2-year old car was a total loss, but I’m mostly alright. My right arm has been sore, as it seems to have taken the brunt of the accident. I have a follow-up visit with my doctor this week to see what we do next. I’m mostly uncomfortable versus in pain right now. I’m glad it wasn’t worse. The same day of the accident, a very dear friend fell at work and broke her leg in two places, and she’s getting married in March - more on that in just a bit. Anyway, it has been a bit of a change, driving still makes me much more nervous than it ever has in the past, and some days I’d rather not leave the house because I get tripped out and fear the worst. I hate the waste of money due to someone’s stupidity, and I hate the distinct possibility that my right arm may never be quite “right” again, which is sad. Time will tell. I bought a new VW, this makes my 4th. Here’s hoping that I won’t have any more trouble… I need a car, and I’m quite tired of throwing money down the toilet.
I’m mostly stir crazy as I haven’t been able to work out and some things are still a bit problematic. I can at least carry my coffee and open doors without wincing in pain, so that’s a plus. Gaining 5 pounds however, is not a plus. We started a new diet, and I’m going to start running again this week, if nothing else. The beers I just consumed are not on this diet… but at the moment, I do not care. Small price to pay for dealing with family business this weekend.
Onto the wedding. I’m in it, and David is going with me. To Vegas. It’s a shorter trip than I wanted initially, but it made more financial sense. We had to work around a couple of other conflicts so it was the best we could do right now. Fortunately we have some other things building up on the year’s agenda, so we’ll have plenty of fun vacation time together. There’s a concert or two and another Toronto trip lined up so far. We loved Toronto last year and will be staying on a couple of extra days this time, and hopefully I won’t screw up the DSLR so my pictures turn out better.
I have some other less-interesting things in the works for the year as well, but they could turn into bigger, more amazing things. I like being cryptic.@1 month ago
