Accident Update

(Negativity Alert!) I am feeling rather frustrated today. I would like to know what is happening and it's just a really slow process. Our insurance seems to think our van can be fixed for about $5000 but the collision place that has it is wondering why they want to fix it at all. They (the collision place) couldn't even open the hood and will need to work on stripping down the front of it later this week. Then they decide what parts they need and order them (that will be another 5 working days). The work itself will take at least 2 1/2 weeks... I'm not dealing well. We need two vehicles starting next week. We will probably need to rent a car which isn't in the budget. I guess I'll worry about that next week or at least on Friday. Scheduled worrying, crazy huh? (Negativity Alert Suspended!)

I called the other people involved in the accident. We were in no way at fault but I wanted to let the others know that I was thinking about them and that I didn't blame the guy who ran the stop sign. I have absolutely no bad feelings toward him at all. I felt like he needed to know that I forgive him and that I wish him well. It made me feel better to talk to him and I hope it helped him. Unforgiveness is so toxic.

I was able to knit some yesterday but still have no yarn for the knit your bit socks. I really need to get to my LYS but with only one vehicle errands are a challenge. I will try later but for now I knit what I have. "Be a finisher, be a finisher, be a finisher..." My new mantra. Words to live by.

hi erica,

i'm sorry about all of the frustration and mess that has come out of the accident. i really admire you for calling the others involved. you're right - unforgiveness is so very toxic.

i hope things get better for you and your family! i have a feeling that things will be taken care of. just rest knowing that this is in His hands.

take care!
