*cheesy post incoming* (and not the edible kind)
Two weeks ago, I went out to move my car to find a huge dent in the side. Somewhat had hit my car overnight and left without a trace. Earlier this week, I dropped my car off at the collision center, only to come back to see someone in the middle of trying to steal my bike. When I approached him and asked what was going on, he dropped the detached back wheel, and ran away. As I walked to the bike shop carrying the pieces of my bike, I started feeling sorry for myself. First, my car, and now my bike?? Am I just not supposed to go anywhere? -.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.
20 minutes later, I made it to the bike shop, and the owner very kindly fixed up my bike for free by re-attaching the wheel and fixing the brakes, and I got a call from the collision center saying that the estimate for the repairs was a lot lower than I thought. I started to realize — with a car accident and an (almost) bike robbery in the span of two weeks, I was still doing pretty great. My beloved bike is still fine and good as new, I’ll have my car back next week, and most importantly, I’m okay. Sure, it was a hiccup, but it really only affected me for 30 minutes. The longer I allowed myself to engage in self-pity, the more time I was wasting thinking about it, and that was just unnecessary. -.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.
Ok so now what you’re all here for - the food. I was inspired by @rachlmansfields challah French toast, so I decided to French toast-ify the last couple slices of my pumpkin bread - best decision EVER. My dad ate half of it when I went to go grab something, and honestly I can’t even blame him - that good 😍 best way to kick off Friday + gather my strength for today’s flu shot 😂
