I’m normally a super positive person, and can roll with pretty much any punch that’s thrown my way. But yesterday was bad…
Friday started out great, it was gorgeous outside, I only had to work 4 hours. After work I was going to take the kids to my sister-in-law’s pool. I left my office, walked to my car, got in, and pulled out of the space. I thought I looked to see if there was a car behind me, but as soon as I pulled out, another car coming down the street smashed into my car!
I was so shocked by the whole thing! I wasn’t hurt, but my car was, the new tire I just bought a few weeks ago was completely off the wheel and flattened. My front bumper was on the ground….UGH!!!
Now a few weeks ago, a friend of mine at work was selling a car he didn’t want anymore, and I ended up buying it. We only had the one car (which I just wrecked) and even though my husband and I both work within walking distance to our jobs, I thought it is nice to have 2 cars to fall back on…
So, had I not jumped on the chance to buy my friends car, I wouldn’t have a car right now, so that’s a good thing, right?
So, we didn’t go to the pool. I had to call my insurance company, call for a tow truck, and figure out what to do. After that, the kids and I were straightening up, I had just finished vacuuming when guess what? The power went out in my house! I was like “what now?” I ran down to the fuse box, none of the fuses were out. My son ran next door and the whole block was down. Com-Ed said it would be up in about 3-4 hours!!
So, instead of ordering pizza in, we went out for pizza and by the time we got home, all was good!
So today when I woke up, I decided I was going to ride my bike for exercise. I had some books to return to the library, I used my daughters backpack, and rode for about 50 minutes around my neighborhood, and ended up at a place that would make me happy…The Farmer’s Market!!. It was super busy, but I loved walking around and seeing everything..
Some pictures of that:
Beautiful heirloom tomatoes
I love the color of these onions!
As I was riding my bike home with some great stuff I got at the farmer’s market, I noticed a sign on a storefront that said “Chicken and Waffles…Coming Fall 2009”
What? I’ve seen that combo on Diners, Drive in and Dives on the Food TV, but never thought there would be a restaurant like this in my neighborhood. I may just have to do a restaurant review when it opens!!
So, my car is totaled, the repairs are more than the car is worth, so we’re back to one car. So, I thought to myself, I think I’ll ride my bike to work!! Today is a new day, right??
