Since last December life has been very hectic and I think that the lack of sleep, exhaustion, and stress galore finally caught up with me.
To make a long story short, yesterday, while picking up Carlos from work, I got distracted, ran a red light at a major street and crashed with a car that had the green light and was trying to turn. Luckily nobody was hurt and, since neither of us were speeding, there was no major damage to either car.
So okay, there was damage, but not that bad. My car's bumper got scratched and out of sync and so did the other driver's. Plus the other driver's car got a broken headlight and was leaking water. We are hoping that it was the windshield wiper water deposit, as we could not see any damage to the radiator. Keep those fingers crossed!
Because there was no problema with whose fault it was -- heck, I knew it was mine! -- there were no injuries and it was not a major accident, no police report was filed. Even better, since both of us have the same car insurance, the insurance company has contacted me and the claims will be processed with no fuss and as a no fault accident.
I was also very relieved that the couple in the other car were very pleasant and understanding about the whole thing. Heck, the guy even hugged me and said "No problem. It was an accident."
Thank God for small favors.
Needless to say, by the time we made it to the Baronial business meeting, I was having trouble staying awake. So if I sounded kind of *blergh* now you know why.
I will have another -- happier -- posting later with my KASF report.
And now, back to the drawing board . . .
