And With The Good Comes The Bad

Had a nice St. Patrick's Day yesterday. Weather was gorgeous, in the 60's, sunny and not a cloud to be seen. The breakfast bookclub met for lunch to discuss Colm Toibin's novel Brooklyn at the Pub and we had a great time. I spent the rest of the afternoon watching the St. Patrick's Day Parade in NYC on tv and cooking dinner for us & Mom. She's been in a bit of a mood lately but aside from one overly rude comment directed at me, dinner was pleasant enough.

Today it's warm, getting up into the 70's, hazy sunshine and a great breeze. I've been enjoying the quiet. Some of the buds on the Forsythia bush have opened revealing its' bright yellow flowers. Our friends are getting married today.

Then Hubbs called around noon. He was rear-ended while stopped at a red traffic light. He's okay (THANK GOD!!!) but our suv is not. He wasn't at fault, the police told him the other driver is fully at fault. But we won't be driving the suv for a while or ever depending on what's been damaged.
Lesson: Pay Attention When You Are Driving! You may not hurt someone physically but you can still hurt their lively-hood in the mean time while the insurance companies bicker about damages and payment for repairs, not to mention your own damages or injuries.

I didn't want to let go of him when he got home!

Glad your hubby is ok - but totally understand the organising of transport & then choosing a new car or waiting for your old one to be fixed.

Love Leanne

I'm glad too, to say the very least! That's one of those calls you dread getting for sure. The suv will get taken care of - the carelessness of others is just maddening!

That's so true. When my son was first learning to drive, a woman with a very bad record ran into the passenger side of the car as she went through the stop side. Her husband didn't even want insurance companies involved that's how bad her record was, but our car was tied up in the shop for two weeks! How absurd.

Glad he is okay.

My goodness - what a scare! Glad your hubby is ok and that you can find a mode of transportation soon. Theresa
