So, when a deer hits your car, just know that it is gonna take some time to get everything back as it was.
Here is what has been going on in my neck of the woods.
Obviously, the rest of last weekend was spent relaxing. The weather was rainy, and I had no desire to keep crawling into my car. So I mainly stayed put, and got rides from a few friends. I did venture out in my beat up Bluebelle (that's my car's name) to get a sausage biscuit from Hardees. Random but delicious!
On Monday, it was all business. My soreness was gone. And I spent time filling out papers, and making phone calls. Just taking care of business. When it was time to get a rental car, all that was left was a gorgeous 2013 Ford F150. Yeah, can you picture me driving one of those things? I did give it a whirl, but it was huge. And I felt like it was driving me, I was not the one in control;) So, I returned it for something more familiar (aka lower to the ground).
By Tuesday, I had called the body shop approximately 4 times to check on my baby. Finally I got the report. Bluebelle was lined up to get a new hood, fender, grill, and paint job!
The rest of the week went on by. Now, Friday night I finally got my courage back. Since my accident I had avoided the road where I was hit. Well, to be honest I avoided it at night. I was nervous about a repeat performance. But, on Friday I told myself, a week was long enough to be fearful. So, I took a nap, had dinner, and at 9:00 I went out to Barnes & Noble. I was brave yet cautious. It was all safe and now I can check that off my list. I still drive slower on that road and keep my eyes peeled for movement in the trees. But I am no longer scared to travel that road at night:)
Thank You wonderful family and friends for keeping me in your prayers and thoughts! They made all the difference. Oh, and I should be reunited with my car by the end of this week!
