Crunched Like A Soda Can

My little Miata was crunched like a soda can between two big rig trucks. YIKES! Thankfully, it happened in stop-and-go traffic and no speed was involved. No one was hurt (except my car) which is another blessing.

But, alas, the trunk on my Miata is no more. My car is in the repair shop, it has to be completely dismantled for them to determine the full extent of the damage. In the mean time I'm relagated to driving a boring rental car. At least the AC works really well in the rental car, which is a big bonus in this sweltering heat!

A Big Week

The week between June 29th and July 6th tends to be an emotional roller-coster for me, this year has been no exception. On June 29th I "celebrated" the 2 yr anniversary of my broken brain and the birth of River. Today, July 6th, I celebrate my 39th birthday.

For some reason this year, I wanted to start a tradition that marks the anniversary of my MS diagnosis and Turtle found just the right thing. Every year I plan on adopting a nest of baby sea turtles through the Sea Turtle Rescue Project. Here's a link if you want to check it out: http://www.seaturtles.org/

Turtle found this organization and, of course, I cried like a baby when I read Turtle's email telling me that he had found the perfect thing we could do every year for my anniversary.

As for being 39....I already don't like it! I don't like that 40 is looming. I would like to skip over 39 and simply deal with the fact that I'm 40 and move on. But, no, instead, I have a whole year to stew about it and dread the big 40 even more. UGH! Generally speaking, it will be my rule to NOT tell people I'm 39 because I really don't want to listen to their turning 40 spiels.

At least I'm consistent, I hated being 29 for the exact same reasons. So, I was 28 for 18 months and 30 for 18 months and I skipped over 29 completely. I think I'll do the same for 39. Okay, so this birthday I'm really turning 38 NOT 39. Please forget that I mentioned I was turning 39.

Happy Accident to Celebrate: Rewriting history and NOT having a 39th birthday.
