|Because flowers make everything better, right?
Spring is always a busy time around my house, as well. I love to have a good looking yard. I love flowers. I love working outdoors. All of this takes time, and when it's only me in the house, with the help of my mama, it takes all the spare time. It has this year, for sure.
So, two weeks ago I decided it was time for my mama to update her car. We went to the dealer, picked out a nice looking pre-owned 2015 Nissan Rogue. We drove it around for exactly a week before a man who couldn’t stop his big truck hauling heavy yard equipment blew through a very read light, striking the last foot and a half of the Rogue. Exactly a week. Now, two weeks after buying the “new to us” car, it has been declared totaled.
Mom and I are okay in the sense that we are not dead, we did not end up in the hospital, nor were we maimed. We are still very sore, though. I definitely have whiplash. I am unable to focus for any more than a minute or two on reading because my eyes just can’t remain focused for any longer than that. I’ve only just begun to feel like I can string words together to write. You know those tones they use to test your hearing? I have one of those on a constant loop at a very low volume in my ears. I hear that this eventually goes away, with time, muscle relaxers, therapy (possibly mental, as well as physical will be needed for both mom and I), and patience. I hope so, not just for my physical and mental well-being, but for my job, my house, my yard, and my business.
Working now to get back on track…
