a bit of a rough patch...

It seems I only blog when I have something to complain about...sorry...
I have been off Spark People alot lately, I have excuses, but they are just excuses back pain , knee pain, blah blah....lol....two weeks ago I got rearended and had minot damage to my bumper, the poor kid who hit me kept apologizing cause he wasn't looking in front but to see if cars were coming, he was behind me on a yield passage, 3 days later I am on the autoroute heading home from work, the car in front of me does an evasive move and manages to change lanes, but lo an behold, there was a kitchen chair in the middle of the lane. I had cars on both sides of me and I am rolling at 100km ( about 60 miles per hour, I think), so I hit the brakes, managed to stop just before the chair, but before I could catch my breath, I got rearended again. 4 police cars, 1 ambulance and a tow truck, and me with nerves totally shot. 1 week later my truck was declared a total write off.
Yesterday we ordered a new truck. Last time it was a happy experience, for me not so this time..it's not the way to get a new car. I still drive on the autoroute, but nervously. Oh the day after the stupid accident, my mare came down with colic. A word that strikes terror into every horse owner. Quit acting on the part of the people at the stable, hubby and the vet, the mare is okay today. We have added electolytes to her diet. We are thinking that the drastic change intemperature that we had, from the 80's to freezing overnight might be responsable for her dehydration which led to the colic.
But all this happened in the space of 4 days. One begins to feel real unlucky!!!
Everything else in my life is fine. I have even started riding again, but just trail rides, me and my mare in the woods all by our selves at a walk, so relaxing!!!!!!!!
