There’s an expression that goes “people plan…God laughs.” Well, dear readers, Robin and I certainly had a nice little reminder of that just last Friday!!
Our weekends tend to be fairly consistent from one to the next; doing a few chores around the condo, picking up groceries, a couple of outfit photoshoots…and usually an afternoon at the mall for some recreational shopping. This particular Friday, I had a dentist appointment thrown into the mix…no big deal.
Except. Literally moments before hopping into the car to head to my appointment, a speeding pickup truck crashed into a van right in front of the veterinary clinic where I work…and the two vehicles slammed into two others that were innocently sitting in our parking lot. One of those cars was mine.
We haven’t heard from the insurance company yet, but as an older model vehicle that sustained some serious damage both to the front and back end?? We’re pretty sure that our only set of wheels is a write-off. It’s hard not to feel incredibly unlucky – totalled in a parking lot?! – but on the other hand, I wasn’t in the car yet when the accident happened. So from that perspective, I was actually very lucky.
And hey – car shopping is still “shopping,” am I right?! 😉
