Sunday I got side swiped by a semi truck, he only stopped because I honked my horn. And when he got out and started approaching I said “we need to exchange info” that’s when he went into hysterics about how I hit him, when really it was his trailer that hit me while I was stopped letting him through. And as fate would have it, I forgot my cellphone at home on my desk. I had asked him several times if he could just call the police to get an accident report done, but since he was hysterical it didn’t register. Finally, I had to flag someone down to help me out.
Since the accident was on ‘private property’ all the officers could do was write up an accident report; but, one of the officers told me that if it had been on the city road the trucker would have been cited for improper lane usage and he would have been at fault. They had marked on the accident report that I was ‘parked’ when he hit me.
Tuesday Night: just about a week ago today, my grandma passed away, she had Dementia. It was a blessing that she passed in her sleep.
So the rest of my week consisted of helping my parents sort & donate what was left of my grandmother’s belongings; and taking care of my vehicle situation. As a result of that accident and truck drivers hysterics, the sleep faeries abandoned me, I had insomnia for about 3 days. I seem to only get it when I’m severely stressed and anxious. I had a terrible bout with it after each Tika and Tasselhoff were put to sleep, hours of laying in bed wide awake staring at the ceiling fan.
Then Friday was the Funeral, after that I came home and slept for about 4 hours.
So here it is a new week, I have a few pieces I’m working on (Zombie Girl & Day of the Dead Themed painting) that I’m hoping to have finished with prints by Friday. Then Saturday I have a show in Silvis IL (2010 Moonlight Parade & Craft Show).
Also on 9/10-9/11 I will be at the Non Sports Expo in Carol Stream IL, which is (or most likely will be) my last show of the year.
