So I hit a deer, now what?

Dangerous in UT anyway. Sheesh.
This weekend I decided to hit a deer. Well, kinda. The deer was waiting on the side of the road, and it didn't look he was gonna dart in front of me. I didn't want to hit anyone else by swerving so I continued to stay in my lane. Just as I passed him, the dumb old deer darted out in front of me and I clipped him with my passenger headlight.
  I was on my way to my clinical (for my CNA repeat class that I do not need 'cause I have 4 years experience but I let my license expire) so I could not stop and get the deer's insurance information. *sigh* We just finished paying over $500 in repairs and I hit a deer. *sigh*

I was a wreck until I had a break to call home and tell my honey what happen. After my clinical, he picked me up. He fixed what he could and drove the car back to his mother's house. (We are visiting his mother at the time.) The thing is this car was not being driven 'cause it wasn't working so naturally it did not have insurance. Now we have to get this car on some sort of insurance pretty quick BECAUSE now of course we stick out like a sore thumb to cops because we have no passenger light, side marker light, or grill.
  So that is where I am right now. My house is beautifully decorated for Christmas, (and yesterday I baked some more pumpkin bread.) Mmm, delicious. And no, I was not hurt or anything when I hit Bambi.

Don't worry about me or anything. That deer is in pretty bad shape though.

I did learn something interesting this weekend though. "Whatever you choose to focus your life on will come back to you in magnitude later." So if you focus on how hard your life is, no money, life is the pits, that's what you will get. BUT if you focus on the positive AND all the blessings you have, you will get that back in magnitude. I choose to be happy. Today and for the rest of my life.
Akuna Matata--means no worries. And that is what I'll be doing.
And hitting no more deer anytime soon. *sigh*

PS. And don't forget to check out my SIL and her Merryweather crafting store. If you have any girls that just LOVE to play with dolls. It would make a fantastic present. Ok?

Glad you are OK! That is scary.

I'm glad you're ok. I'm so afraid of hitting a deer this time of year.

If you're trying to get the car insured, get the paperwork in ASAP! If you're quick enough, stuff will get approved before anyone knows about the shape of the car. Not that I would know or anything - lol!

Keep looking at the glass as half full. It really does help!

I'm glad you are ok! But that stinks!
It seems like two steps forward and one step back.

OK you have the right attitude.
This is going to be a great week!

I have to assume you were between here and Cedar - I rarely see deer further South!

sorry - glad you're okay!!!

OMG I would have been so freaked out! You are a trooper to be able to sit through clinicals after such an ordeal!

Awww man, I'm so sorry. For you, your car and Bambi. That must have been really awful!

I like your philosophy though. I'm trying hard to live life on the positive side too.
