Hey T-Bone!

I'm NOT talking about a steak here folks. I was in a car accident yesterday during my lunch break and I was T-Boned. Here is what happened:

I was heading home after grabbing something to eat (which never did enter my stomach) and I was stopped at a 2 way stop. I was facing east waiting to cross and to my left was a LARGE FedEx truck wanting to turn left. Because he was there, I could not see the oncoming traffic from the North. I sat there for what seemed like forever and turned to look at the FedEx driver. He motioned to me what looked like "You're good, go ahead and cross" -- if I could 'show' you the hand gesture I would. So, naturally, I went. And then the scariest thing happened EVER! I got T-boned by a Chevy Suburban going 35 mph. It all happened really fast! I honestly didn't see the damage to either vehicle except for my front tire which is tilting in. I had to wait for the towing company to come get my vehicle because the police officer advised me not to drive it. I waited for what seemed like FOREVER for the tow company to get there and another 25 minutes watching the mechanic (who had NEVER done any sort of towing before...great, thanks.) try to get my car up on the bed. Finally, his boss and another guy showed up and got my car up on the bed within 5 minutes. Ugh. I talked to my insurance company and got things straightened out and we only have to pay our deductible, thank God. And because I had Brogan's car seat in the back seat, I have to get a new one which will be paid for in full by my insurance company. I'm pretty sore today but thank God I work for a chiropractor! I've been getting adjusted all day today and I did get a massage GC from Tommy for Christmas! That will definitely be coming in handy the next couple weeks!

Oh and the funny thing is (well not funny really but whatev) this all happened not even a block away from my house.

No one was hurt; I have a small ticket to pay for a 'stop sign violation'; I have a wonderful father-in-law who is letting us use his truck till ours is finished getting fixed; and I can get a cute, new car seat for Brogan. It was a shitty (pardon me) day but there is always a silver lining, right?
