Little did I know when I woke up this morning did I know that this would be one of the worst days in a long time. I had to wake up at 4:50am to get ready for work. I got dressed and went out to my car but forgot my phone so I had to run back to get it. I was being really careful and making sure to drive the speed limit because I don't want to get another speeding ticket. Right before Sunlight Bar a deer suddenly came out of nowhere and smashed into my car. I quickly pulled over and made sure it was still working, and then finished driving to work. I sat at the screening station for a few hours before I go transferred to the floor because someone was "sick." After work, I limped my car to the Subaru garage and waited while they checked it out. They eventually came and told me that I shouldn't be driving it around because the radiator was pressed against a belt, and that I'd be looking at around $6000 in repairs. I took it over to L&M where Dad and the girls were and we took a look at it together, and then drove it over to the Subaru salvage place to see what they could quote it. Then I rode home with them so I could take the van while I'm figuring out my situation. Luckily I have a couple thousand in savings but it'll be tight for the next few weeks. I went down to the garden with Dad, and then drove back to my apartment. Justin texted me and let me know that because of the Covid outbreak, we probably would not be having church for the next few weeks. I had a headache so I took a nap, and then went for a walk with Karri before going to bed.
