I’ve been unplugged for a lot longer than I thought I would. I thought I was traveling home for the weekend to attend my sister’s graduation (she graduated with highest honors, by the way!). But as it turned out, I was starting out on the worst car trip ever. On the way there, my cat had an asthma attack (only his second in two years) in the Middle of No Where Wisconsin. It took my dad, his internet connection, and my cell phone to finally find a vet 30 miles away who could see him and shoot him full of steroids.
Then came the graduation, which was nice.
Then on Monday I started out to drive home, but wrecked my car instead. I did it not even half a mile from my parents’ house, and I didn’t hurt any one else or anything else, which is good. But I did completely wreck my car, and suffered the effects of being hit in the head by an air bag. I don’t recommend it.
But I’m home again and fine, except for being kind of shaken up. I’m hoping for a really, truly, bone-numbingly boring rest of the week.
