Remember my last post where I was all like, NO WAY this year gets worse? I damn well should have shut my face.
I had that follow-up beta that Thursday, followed by one the week following Christmas. Things were looking up! My beta was finally dropping significantly. My uterus got the memo it was just some spare tissue left and it could stop its death grip on my uterine lining and just drop that shit already. After getting what turned out to be my last beta on the 27th of December I hit the road and start driving to the drug test for my new job.
Except, on the way to the drug test I hit black ice (we think?) changing lanes on the freeway and I lose control of my car. I smash my rear-end into the left-hand median and then swerve back over to the right median between two disconnecting freeway systems. Drivers side and curtain airbags all deploy. Luckily no one else was involved, and I was just fine, outside of losing some earrings.
Get the car towed, make a police report and frantically get Bill to leave work and come get me. For those who don’t know, drug tests are serious business. You get it done the day you’re assigned to get it, or you’re fucked. At the time of the accident I only had 3 hours to make it, but somehow we did.
After a ton of back and forth for several days, it’s determined my car is totaled. Which, whatever. I have GAP coverage, so it’s not super stressful, but this process has been seriously drawn out. My accident was the 27th and I’m still waiting on my insurance to pay their portion of my loan so I can then forward the remainder to my GAP coverage.
Then to ring in the New Year I got norovirus 2 days before I started my new job and summoned in for jury duty on my first day. Such a great way to ring in the New Year! Hopefully, this means 2017 can only get better.
On the plus side, my beta is finally back to zero, Bill and I had a blast at a friend’s fancy New Years Eve dinner, and my new job is pretty kickass so far. Now all I need is for the car drama to work itself out and things will at least be back to manageable.
