I think.

That's a pun actually.

I'm sitting here and thinking that there is another way to look at my situation.

When I had the accident, I had just sold the house next door and had the money to finish this Midlife Crisis, build a House Yourself and make it Strong Project.

I've thought about the time slipping by constantly in the last year. If there is one thing I could wish back, it would be my ablitilty to work solo and actually get something done. My mind stays on ten different tasks at a time. Buffer Under Run. Everything is Shiney. Paying Attention is Heavily Taxed in my World Now. Three hours of dealing in Real Time with humans is like taking a four hour test, and being tired afterwards even though not a Calorie was burnt in Physical Exertion.

I'm here though, I can remember how to do anything I could preaccident, and phsysically I can do anything except lean over or lay flat on my back without the world spinning.

Those are Trivial Problems.

If I look at it another way, I've paid a Year for a chance to finish my house.

A very small price.

If I can line up a helper for the summer, except the time I spend getting my head sewn on straight, I should be able to finish this place. A good friend came by yesterday, and told me he had been talking to a contractor, that might stop by and offer me some contacts to sub out some of this . I'll need to borrow some money, but once again, It's trivial.

I almost had this house done and paid free and clear at the age of 42.

If I owe something on it, at the age of 43, I am still far ahead of my curve, even subtracting out my last year.

Life goes on.

Miracles are there to see.

The girl driving this car will walk I am told. The drivers side seat is shoved all the way to the passenger side. I could not crawl into the space she was pulled from.

Too Tight.

She broke a hip and jaw. I think a year from now, she will see life differently.

wow. that girl sure is lucky she walked away from that crash. your mojo must have rubbed off on her by coincidence!

good luck on finding the right people to help finish out the house. you've come so far, and weathered so much, it will be great when you can sit back and see it all completed.

You'll Appreciate the Irony of This.

This is a very very small town. I have had maybe 5 people locally look at my journal or webpage in the last month, but since it is a small town, and I had so many customers, I am used to people walking up to me and either saying, I thought you died, or asking if I ever was compensated for it. Words travel in small towns I guess. I went out of my way not to talk about the physics behind the accident, I actually thought I may have had slandered the place I almost sued in the ER, and was very careful just to avoid talking about it altogether. I ran into a nurse that was there by the way, and she said I was the perfect patient, clear and rational and calm. That may have been cause I was unconscious for so long, LOL.

Anyway, I do this in person to! So many tangents. But anyway, I had taken my wife's car to to the shop I always go to, to get the AC worked on, and the guy there says "Hey! Did you see the car? The one that hit the telephone pole?"

I figured he knew me, I remember everyones faces, but I can't tell the ones I know from the ones I know from living here. He's is talking though like he knew I would want to see this car, and I tend to lug my camera most places I go. When he started telling me how the driver lived, and was going to take some time to heal, but honestly, she should be dead I started thinking maybe somehow he found my journal.

I could not fit in that space even when I was a child. The drivers door is a foot from the passengers, so lucky, just like I was, and here is probably the one person within 50 miles of me that has every read this, and I walk into him.

Pretty Statistically Odd huh?

What's odder is that it turns out this guy didn't know me from Adam, that he just looked at me and thought, I bet he wants to see this.

Hahhahahha That's the honest truth.

Life is a string of Coincidences!

I'm always afraid of people not getting my Jokes and thinking maybe computers and sharp objects should be placed out of my Reach!
