So, last night I came home, checked my email, and got some good news. I am now an IDEA Inspired Blogger! Basically, the program is for bloggers who "inspire and motivate others to live a healthy lifestyle." I was really excited about it!
Unfortunately, it's the only thing I've been excited about this week. It has been a rough one and pretty much everything that could go wrong, has. Let's recap. Last week, I noticed a new Crohn's symptom that I've never had to deal with before. Since my doctor can't see me until next week, I've been worrying about it ever since.
Then, I was in a fender bender on Friday. No one was hurt, but it freaked me out. I'm a nervous driver on a good day. By the time I graduated from high school, six of my classmates had been killed in car accidents, and that's not counting the accidents involving students who were not in my graduating year. I was not close to any of the students who died, but I went to a small high school and knowing or knowing of that many students who died in accidents made me acutely aware of how dangerous cars are. My experience on Friday is not likely to improve my opinion of driving.
Finally, I woke up this morning and went to the refrigerator only to find everything in the freezer melted and nothing in the refrigerator cold. I had a ton of food, and more importantly my medicine in there and all of it was ruined. I spent my day hauling bags of my groceries out to the dumpster, ordering replacement Humira pens, and waiting for maintenance to show up. When they finally got to my apartment, I started explaining that my refrigerator wasn't working and all of my food had gone bad. Then the guy looked in my refrigerator at the bags of melted frozen chicken and onions that were beginning to smell and tried to tell me I didn't have to throw away everything. Right. Because the only thing that could possibly make this week better would be a sprinkling of botulism on top of my pasta.
Anyway, I plan to get back to my regularly scheduled miles tomorrow. Let's hope that I won't encounter any new disasters before then...
