I'm pretty well aquainted with Murphy

As in Murphy's Law. You know those phrases like "life is what happens when you're making plans" or "You plan, God laughs." I like looking into my financial future and trying to plan what I am going to be doing in the next few months with my finances. I do this because Christmas is coming and I am moving in with a friend so my rent is going down.

Then I am driving along today on my way to meet a friend for brunch and it happens. Car Accident. I am fine. They're fine. It was just that, an accident. I feel stupid because it was just one of those things, but I keep thinking "how much is this going to cost?" I have insurance, but there are deductibles, rental cars, and incidental costs. My front bumber is toast. My car was in perfect condition because it was only 8 months old. They're back bumper is just scratched. I would still have it this way. Thank God they were okay. They were great. I cried. My dad fussed. I feel stupid.

If it's not one thing, it's another. sigh.

Oh, dangit! That sucks. I hope your dad and brother like the new front bumper on your car, since that's what they're getting for Christmas! ;)

I am glad that you are okay and also that you hit someone that was nice. Considering that the accident was in Mountain Brook, it could have been a lot worse... you could have hit someone rude or mean (or someone from the Y).

On a side note, I think it could have been a truly beautiful thing had you rear-ended Dr. Gentry.

Peyton you're a nut.

Good thing it wasn't raining or else it would have been just horrible ;)
