Ahhh.....Monday again. I'm counting on this week to be better than last. I'm still coughing and snuffling a bit but feel much better. The repair estimate on the car is $4,000 and a week of work so we'll be driving down to SC in a rental...not that I mind really. And in other good news we got the smushed front passenger door to actually open and close. It's rough and clunky and the wind rushes through but it's something.... now I don't have to sit in the back seat.
Ernie's still hurting a bit. We'll have to keep an eye on his shoulder and see how it goes. My father would be up in arms, ready to file suit. I found myself with the urge to call my mother the other night and tell her about the accident. I know just how it would go....I would tell her all about the accident with her saying, "oh honey...." and then later she would tell my father and then I would get the call from him all hyped up in lawyer mode. I can almost hear him. It makes me miss them so.
The accident has cast a bit of a pall. It's yet another reminder of how freaking uncertain life is, how little control we have. I think Ernie is still bothered by the accident. Part of him feels guilty....if only he hadn't decided to go out at that moment....and part of him is still angry, deep down angry. Gotta let it smolder a bit more I guess. I can feel it. He's quiet about it but I can feel it. My sweet pea.
A couple of random things....a picture from Bloomington the other day (damn they've got some nice building stock in that downtown) and some music from Irene Kelley...our next house concert coming up on April 11....it's gonna be a great one!
