A Wreck (and a Wreck)

Driving home, Tuesday, driver behind me gave me a little bump from behind. No major damage, we were both able to drive away after swapping info. He wants to pay out of pocket and keep his insurance company out of it…OK by me, but I still got his D/L and insurance info as backup. Looks like he was wanting to change lanes and checked his mirror at the wrong time…when traffic stopped, he didn’t.

Repair estimate is nearly $1,200. Which is actually less than my first thought, but the bumper piece that would be very expensive is repairable without replacing. So, mostly paint and buff labor expense.

Now to the second wreck…which is me. Wednesday I helped set up a trade show booth in Dallas. My plan was to sit and point. Instead, I ended up doing a lot more physical stuff than I had planned. Plus, any time I gave any direction, I had to repeat myself 2 or 3 times, as only one person at a time could hear me, and had a crew of 6. Got pretty frustrated and very tired.

Thursday, I was still wiped out. I did come to work, but left early and napped for several hours before heading to bed.

Today, Friday, woke up feeling mostly OK. But, when I got to Starbucks and started trying to eat my breakfast, I got my very first bout of nausea. Didn’t eat much, and didn’t toss my cookies, but was worried about it for a bit. Came on into the office, as it is only 15 minutes away from the clinic and I have to go there to get my chemo pump disconnected, so no point in driving back home until after that is done. Think I’ll head there very shortly then head home. Not enough energy to be very productive.

Tomorrow, I had tentatively planned to assist with booth teardown. I’m pretty sure that ain’t gonna happen…hopefully everything will get packed back into the correct crates without me being there.
