I finally got a call from the claims adjuster and he said that after talking with the other driver they most likely will accept responsibility for the accident. He also set me up with a car rental, so it will be nice to have a car again. We are suppose to get some bad weather tonight, so hopefully I can find someone to take me to pick the car up tomorrow.

I am suppose to go back to work tomorrow, but boy is my head hurting. I have had a headache since the accident and today it seems to have gotten worse. I think I am going to try to get into to see someone tomorrow. I still have a knot on the back of my head and my neck hurts when I bend it back or to the side. I really do need to go to work because there are a few things I need to take care of since I have accepted another job.

I sold my coffee table and end tables and they were picked up tonight. I am also selling my kitchen table and chairs and several other things. It's going to be a struggle coming up with the money for my taxes/tags and deposit for a new place, but I know I can do it. I am also going to be shutting off my cable and home phone this week, which will save me $100/month. S is going to lend me one of the DTV converters she has so I will have some reception. And of course I will keep my Internet since I have a slight addiction to the net. Downsizing and simplifying my life feels good and something I should have done a long time ago. It will be a fresh start all the way around and I can't wait.

I took these pictures of Ben last night. He loves to lay on the chair where my computer usually is. Normally when I set the computer on the chair he will get up and move, but last night he just stood there.

Since I got home last night Ben wants to be right next to me. I really feel he senses that something happened to me and just wants to give me comfort. I love my babies.

I love my babies also. I would get to the dr asap. We were rear ended by an idiot who did not take responsibilty and his dad tried to get out of it by saying he committed him to a mental hospital long story. hope you get feeling better

I know that is a relief for you to have things moving in a positive direction again. You're going to be OK, but it will take some discipline on your part. I know you can do it because you've done it before when things were far, far worse.

As Bobbie said, don't hesitate on getting to a doc. And don't sign off on medical settlement too soon. Whiplash has long, long term effects. 20 years+ later, I still have trouble, so get all the care you can NOW!!!

Of course he senses it! I am glad you are going to the doc, never know what could be "hidden" - NOT trying to be gloomy or scare you!
You CAN get through this!

Those are the funniest pictures. Get to the doc and take care of yourself.
