Ever have one of those days?

I was on my way home from work, minding my own business. I was following behind 1 or 2 other cars. The car in front of me passed the west entrance to the Hyrum grocery store. The lady sitting in the entrance waiting to come out, begins to pull out. I start thinking she isn't going to stop. I begin moving toward oncoming traffic. The lady from the entrance pulls out and t bones me & proceeds to push me down the road. Oh goody. Now I've totaled my car, am late to pick kids up from daycare, miss my chiropractor appointment (have barely been able to move for about 5 days) and Sam misses dance class! Oh, and did I mention that I was on my way home after the lockdown order on my school was finally lifted??

If the kids would have been with me, Samantha & Caleb would have taken the brunt of the force. The passenger side window shattered & covered me with glass.



It's a good thing I was able to get a hold of my brother to come pick me up. Unfortunatley for him, he was the one that had to wake up my dad (who swings in his sleep).

Can you see where my brand NEW windshield is shattered too?



Notice the dashboard & how it's up about an inch more than what it should be?

You can see my "souviners" as the highway patrolman called them, sitting on the passenger seat too.

You can see the cracks in the brand NEW windshield in this picture too. Can you tell I'm a bit bent out of shape about the windshield?



See how even the back door is sticking out? That door wouldn't even open either.

Like the black scrap down the entire side of my car?

I think what makes me the most mad isn't that I was hit. It's that we just put in $150 windshield, replaced a $75 park break, paid $100 registration, paid for 2 inspections at $17 each & I just filled it with $26 in gas tonight too!
