Fun with fender benders

Yesterday afternoon I was set to meet up with a friend of mine for a little decadent dessert and some much need girl-talk. On the way there, I had a little fender bender. No one was hurt, thankfully, but my pride suffered a serious blow. I was completely bummed out which sort of ruined my afternoon (and evening…and morning). I talked with the insurance folks and based upon point of impact alone, the fault was determined to be mine (I don’t dispute that – I wasn’t paying enough attention) and our liability insurance will pay to repair the other person’s car. My car had very minor damage and thankfully my next door neighbor is an auto-body guy so hopefully he can work his magic on my car.

I’m not sure I can handle any more “fun” for awhile.

Remember the I’m so stupid conversation I had with myself over the stupid face cream? Well the I’m so stupid tape started playing in my head again right after the accident, along with why did I do that? tape. It just wouldn’t stop this time. In fact, it’s still sort of playing today even though I’m really trying to fight it off. Apparently I have this deep-seated belief that I’m stupid because that’s usually the first thought that comes into my head when I do something wrong. Definitely will have to work on destroying that tape.

Overall, and except for my Sunday afternoon, I had a very nice weekend although I will admit I packed too much into it. Saturday I got to meet with a group of friends I hadn’t seen in a while, then I had some good bonding time with my youngest while we ran errands, then Saturday night the hubs built a campfire in the back yard and we all sat around it and just relaxed – but then I had to stay up late finishing up laundry and cleaning up the kitchen. Got up early Sunday morning, went to church, came home to finish a sewing project, had lunch, went to meet my friend, had the fender-bender, come home, more laundry, more sewing, more kitchen cleaning, then fell into bed exhausted but had a very restless sleep.

Over the weekend, my intention was to eat small portions, which I did, but the quality of my food was pretty awful. My meals were at irregular times and when I did eat, it wasn’t healthy, nourishing foods at all. Plus I drank very little water which is probably why I had a headache all night last night. So when the alarm buzzed this morning, I just didn’t have it in me to get up and run. I was tired, I was sad, and I knew my body didn’t have the fuel or hydration it needed to get me through a run. So I hit the snooze and dozed for another 45 minutes before I had to get up and get ready for work. Hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow when I get up ย – I definitely think a yoga day is in order!

I’m going to spend the rest of the day trying to turn my frown upside down. Hope you all are having a good Monday!

  1. I always get headaches when I’m dehydrated, too. I don’t know how I forget something as simple as drinking water, but it happens.

    Anyway, just make the best of the present situation. Enjoy your Monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Urgh! Sorry about the fender-bender (I read the first as fun with benders, and thought uh-oh…. then saw the fender ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) I hope things start feeling better!

    You are NOT stupid. I have that tape too. I wish I could give it to one of those people who are stuck on how awesome they are, and I could borrow theirs for a day or two!

  3. Oh my goodness, Jill. You know I am telling the truth when I say I know how you feel. I don’t even have the possibility that it was another person’s fault. It was a TREE!! And my tape, if not satisfied with how stupid I am, goes on to tell me how worthless I am. Anyway, I am glad you are okay, and I hope you somehow get a little extra sleep this week. It will do wonders for you.

  4. YES I TOO KNOW. like debby. and kinda like debby I BACKED OUT OF MY GARAGE INTO TREES.
    trees which are always there ๐Ÿ™‚ I rock that way.

    xo

  5. Oh, and I forgot to mention, what made me feel extra-extra bad is that the teenage girl I hit had just come out of Pet Smart to buy milk for the tiny baby kitten she had just rescued. I felt like stabbing myself in the heart! Ugh!!

  6. I hope today is looking better for you. We can certainly be the hardest on ourselves . I’m glad you are okay physically. Get some water in, some rest, and some fun, and let us send you some love so you can get better mentally, too.

    (Hug)
