Just as I was getting over the nausea created when I contemplated the next few weeks ... I decided to take a "day off" of the stress and go shopping with Mom and Lisa. A nice girls' day out ... very "Scarlett O'Hara" of me .. I'll think about it tomorrow. After all tomorrow is another day.
I was looking for a parking place at the very chi-chi mall (where they check your bank balance before they let you in the door .. hey, we just wanted to look!) when a girl in a little white Maxima came around the corner and sideswiped my van. Not much damage, really, but it took 2 hours for the Charlotte police to come to a report, and my stress came back with a vengeance and increased exponentially. Ugh ... just what I needed.
The door and window go in tomorrow ... look at the bright side. One day at a time. This too shall pass ... and all those other cliches about having a crummy week.
