The huzband was supposed to meet up with a running mate early this morning for (obviously) a run and then breakfast. Unfortunately for the huzband, his running mate overslept. Fortunately for me, I got to go to breakfast instead. Really, there was zero food at home so I treated the huzband to a very delicious breakfast! It is nice to occasionally take a little time together while V is in school. We chatted, I took pictures, he read the paper, we chatted some more and I decided I don’t like poached eggs.

On our way home, with only a few blocks to go, we were sitting at a light when BOOM. We got rear ended by a commercial van. I haven’t been in an accident in almost 11 years. I forget how powerful of an impact a car makes when it hits you. You are jolted to your core and for a moment just think, WHAT in the world!
I am thankful Velda was not in the car with us. That would have changed all that followed drastically. I am also thankful it was not a major accident. Though the car will need repair, it is drivable till it can be assessed. The huzband and I are a bit sore, however I think and hope we are okay (the huzband’s a bit worse for wear than I am). There is most definitely some whiplash and sore upper backs. I was at the grocery store later (remember, zero food in the house) to pick up just a few essentials. I could feel all the out of whack kinks in my shoulders and back when I picked up the gallon of milk. It was a reminder to me how intricate our bodies are. How they can withstand so much yet still need the time to line up and work things out. Though I am healthy and “injury” free, my body took a big shock and just needs time to rest and recover. It’s amazing how a strong hit can just suck the energy out of you. Let’s just say it is not how I planned our breakfast date to end.
In the end, it’s just not fun for anyone. For us or the man who hit us. It was a pure accident and I don’t hold it against him. I wish my 11 year streak wasn’t broken but thankful it is minor. So that was my day, how was yours today?
