Day 14 without a CC!
I saw my life flash before my eyes twice yesterday. We live on a really steep hill and it had snowed all day. But about 1 in the afternoon it had stopped and was starting to melt. I was going to the studio at 3 and a school bus was ahead of me. He had not chained up so I assumed all was fine. When the school buses chain up around here you had better worry. I followed him very slowly down the hill. About halfway down I lost control and started to skid sideways. Tried to correct my skid and just continued praying I would be able to get by a big basalt rock wall and in to the scrub as it would do less damage to the car. I was not going fast just going. Well I hit the wall with a crunch. Now another SUV is behind me and he hits the ice and losses control and is heading straight for my side panel. I mean talk about a heart attack. He was able to stop about 6 inches before he hit me. I proceeded to go to the studio as I had to continue down and when I got there I was shocked as there was no damage to my car. I know I heard a crunch and a scrap, but it was the hubcap that took the brunt. Whew! Pays to pray.
I also slid sideways down the hill by the studio into traffic but once you hit Main street the streets were sanded and people were able to stop. I came home last night and refused to drive the rest of the evening. I was breaking out in hives at the studio I was so scared. Hubby had shoveled our entire 7 car driveway which is very steep also, so my customers can get up into the garage. I love the snow and know that it is necessary but so nerve racking when it is icy.
I received a $200.00 refund from the Dentist that I over paid to have B's wisdom teeth out. Nice I will put it in the slush fund to pay debt. I have a few sewing projects to get done and then I hope to be able to hit the books and get accounts balanced so I can set up a payment plan. I am not going to do anything drastic, just take Sluggies advice and slow and steady wins the race. The real solution is not to add more debt! I also need to update my totals that should be fun!
I avoided going to the store last night, but will have to go tonight. We are out of dog food, chicken food and soda. I can go without soda but the animals need to be fed. The dog loves cat food.
Well I am off to the salt mines and I hope today is better on the roads than yesterday!
Have a great and productive day!
