Good to hear that things are closer to being able for you to handle.  Hang in there!

My thoughts are with Totoro.


I got in a car accident today.  It sucks, guy blew a red light.  Everyone is okay, but I am sore as can be on my left side.  What stinks is that my car isn't drivable now, and I have to borrow family's cars to get to work, and I can't drive to Chicago to see my boyfriend now.  It's hard, we have been doing this for 4 years now, and it never gets any easier.  In fact it gets harder.  We get barely any time together as it is, maybe 4 days a month if we are lucky.  It used to be more, but both of us are so busy with our research fellowships that there are times when we are working over the weekends.  I'm just really bummed and sore and irked that my car, that I just spent $518 getting repaired and tuned up, is now sidelined until a claims adjuster comes and looks at it.  Then who knows how long after that to get it fixed.

That sucks, all of it. Glad your injuries aren't too serious.

ses!  I'm so glad you're okay!  Car accidents are horrifying even when nothing terrible happens. 

Feel better, first and foremost.  Then all your other issues will seem more manageable.

Be well.

So glad you're only sore and nothing worse. 

Sorry about the car...losing your transportation is serious.

I can't drive to Chicago to see my boyfriend now.  It's hard, we have been doing this for 4 years now, and it never gets any easier.  In fact it gets harder.  We get barely any time together as it is, maybe 4 days a month if we are lucky.  It used to be more, but both of us are so busy with our research fellowships that there are times when we are working over the weekends.  I'm just really bummed and sore and irked that my car, that I just spent $518 getting repaired and tuned up, is now sidelined until a claims adjuster comes and looks at it.  Then who knows how long after that to get it fixed.

How far do you live apart?  I wasn't intending to (and really tried to stop it from happening) but have managed to get into another long distance relationship which will mean seeing each other once or twice a month at most but will a lot of effort.  But I don't imagine doing it for 4 years, I will try to fix it within the next year.

About 5 hrs, which isn't terrible, but our demanding jobs make it worse when trying to make time to see each other
