until I was backing out of our driveway and did this...
And then fell down our front porch steps in the pouring rain after I came to get Corey.
Did you know it was possible for someone's rear end to swell?
I didn't really know that was possible.
But it is.
My butt is swollen.
And there is a pretty nasty bruise where I hit. Hard. 4 times. (4 steps)
At least I didn't take out any small children on this fall.
The very nice black Jeep that I crunched had no visible damage.
If you really looked you could see a dent in his side door.
I put a note in a Zip-Loc bag (since it was pouring rain) and he came to our door a couple hours later.
He was very nice. Very, very nice.
He gave us his card and we'll have our insurance guy contact him tomorrow.
It could have been worse. Much worse.
Thankful that it wasn't.
Thankful that the only thing that was hurt (besides my butt) is my pride.
I texted my friend (that I was supposed to be picking up to go to Sonic) and said, "I just hit a car and fell down the stairs. I'll call you later." She called right away to see if I was okay and then came over... to bring us dinner. This is my friend who just had a baby two weeks ago. My friend that is a new mommy of three. And she is bringing me dinner. As I'm asking her, through tears, why she is bringing us dinner, she says because she knows I am exhausted and frustrated and she knows what it's like. She was making this dinner for her family anyway, so she just made a double batch.
