It was scary to say the least.
Thankfully everyone was fine; waiting for the police and having the paperwork for the insurance done wasn't too painful. There is damage to each of our cars (hers more than mine, after all, I drive a Hummer), but it's not too bad at all.
The only thing that has been lingering for me is the sound of the crash. I just can't get it out of my head. It's been haunting me as I've been driving. Plus, I'm hesitant on the road now. Normally I'm a confident (and I believe very good) driver. Now, I'm extra cautious -- which isn't a bad thing. I just wish it wasn't fear that was behind the cautiousness.
Although I am still quite distressed over the whole incident, I have to remind myself that everything is ok. Nothing terrible happened. The most important thing is that everyone is fine.
I'm trying not to let my thoughts spiral out of control with 'what if' scenarios. The incident is over. The 'what ifs' didn't happen nor are they going to happen.
It's over. We're all fine.
Onward and upward, right?
