Hello all! Happy Friday! It's been one heck of a week around these parts!

Last Thursday I was rear-ended coming home from a veternarian's appointment with my Lizzie.

She's having teeth issues and had a follow up. We're fighting not having her teeth removed, so far the meds are working. Anyway... I was rear-ended by a van and have been dealing with the insurance company {who honestly have been exceedingly easy and kind to work with - yes, I know. Good insurance people do exist}. While Thursday night I didn't think the car was totaled, Monday came and with it the news from the service people that it indeed was.
The extent of my injuries were a couple bruises. Lizzie was completely fine. Thank heavens!
So, this week has been working with the insurance company on compensation and finding a new car. Still waiting to hear back from our loan people about the pay-off on the car, but once that happens, off I go to pick up a new one. As quickly as possible. This sharing a car is rough!

Tuesday, I was selected in the Broad Street Run 10 miler lottery. Surprised the living daylights out of me, but there it is. I entered because it's the perfect accountability for The Wild Half Half Marathon I'm running two weeks later. I'm looking forward to it. Hubby ran it in 2010 and I think it's a great race...especially now that there are medals. ;-)

Lent began on Wednesday and I decided on my Lenten sacrifices:
  1. No sweets - cookies, cakes, pies, brownies, frozen yogurt {allergic to ice cream}, creme brule, etc.
  2. No soda
  3. I re-joined WW in the hopes that by sticking with it I will have good habits in place by Easter.
  4. Daily devotional. I'm not great at remembering, but I do catch up on each day's even if it's not read that day.
There you have it. My week in a nutshell. It's been crazy and I'll be honest, not one {referring to the car accident} I would like to do anytime soon! The positive is, I'm fine, Lizzie's fine, and this should be behind us come next week. When I pick out and purchase my next car, I'll let you know!

Have a great Friday and weekend friends! Make it count!


  1. Glad to hear you are ok, your car looks bad!! Happy car shopping!

  2. There's nothing more terrifying than being involved in a car accident. The people woh suffer from it are often injured, sometimes severely. Plus, in the midst of collision, your car can even get totaled, and you are left traumatized. Anyway, I'm so sorry you had to deal with something like that, Chris. I'm at least relieved that you got out of that safe and sound. I just hope that you wouldn't run into anything similar again. Take care always!

  3. I hope your car's insurance company has finally found a way to compensate you on finding a new car. How are you these days, anyway? After all, getting rear-ended can leave anyone shaking from shock and frustration. I'm just glad you and Lizzie left the scene with just minor bruises. Thanks for sharing that, Chris! Take care!
