If I won the lottery today... I would travel everywhere and anywhere! and then some.

Wednesday, while taking a few things to storage, I happened upon an accident involving a car and a wheelchair scooter. The scooter was Laing on it's side and holding the right front tire off the ground. The lady seemed ok, save a cut on the hand and a bruise on the leg.
Two hours later (exactly), while enroute to storage with another load, I was rear ended. The pickup bumper hit the spare tire that my Sportage has on a gate at the rear of my car. The tire & gate pushed the hatchback into the car and believe it or not... The frame was not touched by impact.....I felt nothing!!! My first clue that something was wrong was when my rear window shattered. I had shards of glass from one end of my car to the other.
I am fine , but a bit miffed off that I have to drive a strange car that doesn't fit me on so many levels. Trying to get things to storage so I don't have to live amongst boxes while I wait for my apartment to be ready.... I turn in a SUV and get a passenger car in return!!???? Huh? They say it will be one or two weeks before I get my baby back- but then again, it will be one or two more weeks before my apartment will be ready.
I have been driving a 2002 Kia Sportage for the last ten years. Now they have me in a Chevy Malibu. I feel like I went from the perfect size car to a battle cruiser. I am used to windows all around me to sitting in a cave. From sitting upright to seeing what's around me (except when taking things to storage) to dragging my bum on the roadway.
I miss my baby!!!
