A reminder

Driving home from work tonight, in rush hour on I-15, I started to change lanes, moving left while talking on the phone to my mom. Halfway across, a truck that had been in my blind spot loomed suddenly beside me, god, like, inches away. I whipped the steering wheel to the right, over correcting, and felt the back of my car swing wide into the left lane. I forced the wheel back left, and felt the car swing into the right lane.

I don't know what happened after that...my car spun out of control, fully to the right so that I came to a stop facing oncoming traffic. I managed to avoid all the other cars on the road; I hit no one. I drove the rest of the way home gripping the steering wheel and feeling nauseous, but without a scratch.

Man, I'm lucky.

Ok, universe, I get it. It's time to stop complaining and start making things happen.

That is so scary! I'm glad you are okay.

I'd start with not talking on the phone while driving, hon. Glad you're okay. Let's keep it that way, no? xo
