A little R&R is being forced upon me and totally unexpected.
Time to heal.
Time to slow down.
Time for me to "just be".
The bad news is that I was hit on Wednesday while out and on my way to tackle my Christmas list since all of our loved ones live so far away. I was hoping to have all the gifts I needed to purchase ready to be on their merry way Monday morning. That didn't happen. A random man had other plans for me as he decided to turn left onto a crossing street and basically ran me over. He decided turning left from a right hand lane as we were traveling down a two-lane, one-way street was a good choice. Ummm....not so much. It's not the best scenario but also not the worst as things could always be worse.
The good news is that although it's been a huge irritation having to deal with all the phone calls, appointments, etc. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday the car is okay and only suffered some minor damage.
I was beat up a bit and am now resting and taking it much easier than I am used to.
It's hard for me to say I am hurting.
It's hard for me to say I need help.
Hard for me to be "down".
My family counts on me.
I count on me.
I need to work and I can't because of my job requirements.
I'm used to going and going and going.
I'm used to just "gettin' 'er done" but right now the best I can do for myself is to relax and listen to my body.
For the time being there will be limited typing and sitting at the computer while I get treated and heal and as usual, just as I started getting myself back into the routine of working out and running that is also on hold.
I am told I should be good as new in about 3-4 weeks and I will be so ready to get back to normal.
I have so much to be grateful for. And thankful for a son who is always there for his mommy. Without him I'm not sure I would have remembered to take photos of the vehicle damage and with that it was a cut & dry case. Grateful he was able to come down and help me out. So, so grateful for my sweet little family.
