And Also . . .

I do not have strep.

I came out of the doctor's office after a rapid culture disease-free.

And then I hit someone in the parking lot.

Okay, I didn't hit the person directly, thank goodness. Just the back of their bumper. We were both pulling out at the same time from opposite directions and I never saw the little black car. Fortunately, the damage was greater to my bumper than to his. Even more fortunately, the man was very, very nice. Or maybe I just looked very, very pathetic. Either way, he seemed much more concerned about my emotional condition than his bumper. I gave him my phone number, but he wouldn't bother with insurance information. I drove away shaking and then burst into tears.

Yes, full-throated sobs over a car bumper.

I think that's known as "absolutely-the-last-straw-that-my-back-can-handle".

I'm better now, both physically and emotionally.

The bumper is still crunched.

Oh Laura I am so sorry you are having one of those days...if I didn't live a thousand miles away I would come sweep ya up and take ya to lunch. I have totally had those days before. Hope that Chris can give you some time to just sit and soak in a tub with a good book.

That's some bad luck! Luckily the man was nice, besides the fact it was his fault too, it sounds like. I'm glad friday is over and you can start fresh with saturday. Hooray for saturdays! I'm so jealous you're all going to Oregon and then to the east coast. I've never been to either. I hope you all have a great time! Just relax and enjoy. Read books and play. Have a blast!
