Sixteen minutes early for my time zone! lol

It's 11:44pm here and I'm barely able to comprehend that there is a tomorrow yet alone accept that it's in sixteen minutes! Listening to my gerbils chew on their cardboard, have a dog sound asleep at my feet, and feeling a bit tired since I went to bed at 8 last night and woke up at 8am. (Most sleep I've had in a while) I'm not sure when I'll get to bed, though. I tend to procrastinate that! I picked my dog up from the vet earlier today and she's doing great. Has medicine that she needs to take but it's bacon flavored or something, so she takes it like it's a dog biscuit. Hope everyone's day is great.

Good night or morning or whatever time it is when you read this.

Good afternoon folks,

It was a hectic day today for me at work. Someone ran into me in my work jeep in a parking lot this afternoon. I'm driving past and this guy whips out of his parking stall beside me without looking behind, I honk horn, he doesn't react in time, crunch. No injuries on either end thankfully. It was a low speed fender bender kind of situation. His fault (he admitted) so my boss wasn't mad at me for busting up the work jeep, that's good. Had to drive out to the nearby police station to file a report for insurance purposes. I hate talking to police. Even retired volunteer police who are riding a desk taking down collision reports in a small office in a shopping mall.

I'm back home for the day now and am trying to settle down. I need to reassure myself that the accident happened, no telling myself it didn't, it did, it wasn't my fault, no one was hurt, i won't lose my job, it will be okay. It will be okay. I will not think about would could have happened if the timing was different and he was driving faster and what if maybe I didn't have my driver's license with me because I forgot it at home or something and the police had asked for it and I didn't have it or if I didn't have my seat belt, stop it.

Calm down. I'm going to take a hot shower and eat some supper and go to sleep. It will be okay.

edit--- have you ever looked at the LOL emoticon's hair? It has really strange spikey hair. I never noticed before.

Mr. Stewart.. it will be ok.. you are not to blame and did what was necessary to substantiate thet with the police.. scary and could have been tons worse.. music, tv or something you like to distract yourself some and try to relax and get some good sleep tonight..
