I heard from the insurance adjuster yesterday. Blue is fixable and has been towed to the body shop where the work will be done. I'm really glad about this. She is a great car, and I'd just as soon not have to buy another right now.
I remember reading about Shadow's much loved car after the accident. I guess that I also get attached to the familiar--to those "things" that I have. I'm not a creature who likes to toss aside those inanimate things that are familiar. I'm a sucker for animals and would have a herd if I could. And I'm a soft touch for people too.
Maybe all this is the "fixer" in me. I don't want to give up on things, animals or people. I want to make things right. That's been a life long issue. I recognize that I'm powerless. And I fully accepted with the car accident that Blue was likely to be totaled. So when I heard from the adjuster, I was glad to have good news.
I'm grateful for being on the mend with my cold. I still sound bad and am stopped up. But I can tell that this too shall pass.
Thanks for all your kind comments. An accident, an anniversary, Thanksgiving, and a cold in a week has been a good dose of humility.
