2009 is not off to a good start...lol...

or

1. our ditch flooded
2. our waterbed flooded again
3. our dishwasher overflow...over flew
4. as I was leaving safeway today...

I was in the cross walk and

an old lady in a large Bronco type truck decided NOT to look where she was going and HIT my shopping cart HARD! Tore it right out of my hands.... whipped my arm and shoulder around behind my neck...groceries flew out of the cart... She stopped and said "OH, I didn't even see you"
and "I'm as upset as you are!".... I picked up my bread and when I was bent over she LEFT!!!! I thought she was moving her car to park...nope she LEFT!!!! A policeman was happened to drive by and I stopped him. Another lady had written down the licensenplate number... I spent 45 minutes standing in the rain filling out accident reports....and then 3 hours in the emergency room!! I'm fine. I just have a bad neck strain and a DRs. promise that I"m going to feel like crap tomorrow. But, the RX for Vicodine should make me feel better...sigh...

oh...did I mention we have people coming to spend the night in two hours and I haven't even started dinner or house cleaning?

Oh dear - maybe you need to get Paul to do the house cleaning & dinner. Hope you get better soon and the rest of January will be much happier.

Holy holy holy moly! I'm glad you are OK. How scary! I hope they find her. Did you know the fine (here anyway) for entering a marked crosswalk while a pedestrian is in it is over $500? I hope she gets that and more! Stupid so and so!

Holy cow, Trish!!! If I lived near you, I'd be there in a heartbeat to clean anything you want. But, duh, your guests will certainly understand if everything isn't like the Hilton.

Hope the broad who did this gets what she deserves.

Tell me about it. We spent New Year's Day at the closest Emergency Veterinary Hospital we could find with one of our dogs who was having a life-threatening allergic reaction to something. Six hours & $200+ later, we were picking up a quick meal when the waitress chimed that 2009 was going to be a great year. To which my husband responded "well, it's not looking that way so far. . . . ."

Wow, what a horrible day! Well, here's hoping you've gotten all your troubles out of the way for the year.

I hope they find the woman who hit you and take her license away.


Take care of yourself and feel better soon!

This is awful! It's a wonder you weren't more seriously injured! But I suspect you will feel really "beat up" by the morning (maybe even by tonight.) Be sure and take it easy even if the real pain hasn't hit you yet - you could do further damage. I'm not worried about tonight, though, because everyone knows what a sweetheart Paul is and I know he will take exceptional care of you.
