My New Car!!!!!!! Ugh!!!!!

I am so angry at myself!!!!!!! On Tuesday evening, I came home after work and pulled into my parking spot. Sounds simple, right? I needed to go to the mall with my daughter, Rachel, to purchase a birthday gift for our very dear friend. So, I'm sitting in the car waiting for Rachel and my nephew, Kyle, to come out. While I was waiting, I thought I'd go pick up my mail, which I did, and then got back in my car. A few moments later Kyle and Rachel came out and both hopped into the car. Still sounds simple, right? Sooooooooo, I backed out of my parking space - how fast does a car possibly go when backing out of a space, I ask????? All of a sudden, what do my wondering ears hear, but a little bump. Hmmmm. What could that be??? Ahhhh. It was garbage day and there were still some garbage pails scattered around the neighborhood and silly me forgot (yes, in the moment it took to get from the mailbox to my car!!) Well, I didn't think anything of it because the garbage pail looked fine to me so we drove off to the mall. We went to Nordstrom's and bought the most beautiful pair of Juicy Couture earrings for dear Whitney, who turned 18 yesterday. Yeah!!! So we leave the mall after probably only a half hour there because I just went for the earrings and needed to get home for dinner. We walk out to my car and I practically cried when I saw my back bumper. Is this what happens when one silly woman gently hits a garbage pail????? What on earth would happen if I really crashed into something???? Needless to say, I am so very sad. I only got my beautiful little VW Jetta in September and now it has an ugly dent. Do you believe this???? Neither do I!!!!

Theresa from Take a Sentimental Journey had a little fender bender this week also, so my heart goes out to her because I know exactly how she feels.

This really did start out to be a great week. I bought a beautiful lace runner from Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses, which arrived on Tuesday. It is just beautiful and I can't wait to show you what I've done with it. I also bought the most beautiful piece from Marshall's which is a creamy color with pink flowers and green accents - for a fantastic price of $5.00!!!! It looks just beautiful on the lace runner, but I'm still wallowing in my misery and too aggravated to take a picture of it yet. I do think you will just love it, though.

Anyway, I must pull myself up out of the miserable hole I am in - after all, it is just a car - though it will cost lots of unfound treasures to fix, treasures that were just waiting somewhere for me, if you know what I mean. Thanks for listening to me moan. I feel better now! :)

so sorry to hear about your car! I'm sure it can be easily fixed!

Joanne Kennedy said...

Oh no! Sounds like something I would do.

I'm just happy you didn't hit another car or get hurt.

That first dent in a new car is always the worst!

Hello there :) Thanks for your visit! I will tell you after reading this post that I have a nickname (and I wear it well...) It is CRASH :)

Oh dear, I am sorry about your car. But listen to this. My DH was driving his car and backed into my car and did $800.00 worth of damage. I was so mad! We get a laugh out of it now...but not them. ~ Lynn

Hi Joyce :)

I'm so sorry about the car! I hate it when stuff like that happens. I hope it doesn't cost much to fix.

What a bummer...but it really doesn't look to bad.
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my daughter Kelli's birthday!

Whoa, what a bummer. Hopefully one of those places that pulls out dents can fix it right up.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

doesn't seem like a new car now does it ? Do you know how much they estimated to fix my car ???
$2, 060.00 !!! Holy cow ! I wasn't even doing 25 miles an hour ! And get this, it didn't even do anything to the other car! Just scratched it. I can;t remember what kind of car it was, maybe I should get one of those next time when I buy a car.Of course after my accident, my hubby says all I need is a tank !! LOL We'll get over it I guess. HUGS
