Life is Full of Surprises

It is up to you to choose how to deal with them!
I got to my Jeep this morning to go to work and the entire contents of my glove box and center console (CD's) were spread over the seats of my car. I rolled my eyes and got in, put my bag down and realized it felt pretty breezy in there and then realized that my car window had been completely smashed in and the glass was ALL OVER the car. Crap! At first I wanted to cry, but I didn't, I went to another place and sprung into action. I called my insurance and within 15 minutes was on my way to a glass replacement place to get my window replaced. All of it was done by 10 AM, but I decided I would take the rest of the day off since I wasn't too sure how long it was going to take and I knew there was no one in my corner of the office today. The only thing is, my landlord is at my place fixing my ever present broken, leaky sink and is also checking out my caving in bathroom wall (water damage from the outside, I assume). So, I am at the library making this post and filing a police report online. My home computer is broken, the screen won't light up so I have to call Dell and see what they can do if anything.
I don't know what has come over me recently, but these things I would have lost it over in the past, don't seem to phase me anymore, I just get em fixed, taken care of, etc. and forget about them. I realized in the grand scheme of life, these are tiny little bumps and could by much worse; PLUS getting the things repaired is a lot less painless when you don't stress over it.
The only thing that really bothers me....the person who broke into my Stella Blue (Jeep) was a smoker and left a HUGE ash in my center console, I noticed it when I was putting my CD's back and yes, I did mention that on the police report I filed online.
Hope you all have a good day and realize that sometimes these bumps in the road are tests from a higher power to see how you deal with things. I think I did OK today.

That is a horrible start to a day, I am so sorry all of that has happened. I hope they find the person, I hope your computer and sinks get fixed. It's awesome that you were able to remain calm and just take care of business.
I love you, miss you,

Love you!

I am still amazed that I only swore one time about this too, this sitation invited a lot of f bombs but only one was released.
Glad its Friday.
