So, this morning I got up a bit extra early, taking into account that there was about 8" (20cm) very wet snow last night. I shoveled most of it and Mrs Wife finished off the leavings.

She mentioned there was a hole in my car, right rear, but all the lights still worked.

So, this morning I took a peak before driving off to the commuter rail: the hole wasn't a hole. It was an elephanting smash. Not quite driveable, either, as some of what used to be a fender or bumper or wherever it came from was against the tire.

So, I'm working from home again, awaiting tow to repair shop, determining need if police report need be filed, whining about walking to/from transport areas for an indeterminate amount of time, and in order to make my pleasure complete, the $500 deductible on my policy's collision.

So, after someone tells me if I'm having fun, yet, I'll contemplate why one goes on with the struggle.


I just dropped $6K on furniture to replace what Hurricane Sandy ate, so the money hemorrhage is a bit more noticeable than usual.
