The Unexpected- An Accident

We make the best laid plans, then life throws us a curve ball.

On the 11th, driving home from work, someone pulled out of a side street and hit my car. It was bad enough that neither of our cars would ever drive again.

Loosing your car is annoying. Better because he had insurance to cover my lose, and the insurance company got me a rental for a week, but still an inconvenience. I had to go car shopping, have a lot of chiropractic sessions, and spend an awful lot of time on the phone with insurance agents. And how I hate car shopping.

All this right after I had been saying I wanted to get the first book in my new series finished this month…well, that didn’t end up happening. I did get a brand new (to me) car, and I have gotten back into a schedule of sorts. But the first book of “The Half Blood Sorceress” series isn’t going to be finished this month.

I think the worst part of the accident was losing my car. It was a good little car, reliable. Paid for. Gregg thinks the worst part is watching me cringe every time someone gets a little close to my lane on the road. He isn’t entirely wrong, I don’t like it either. But these things happen, and life goes on. We still have to drive, to go to work, and earn money to keep going. And books still need to be written.
