Look What I Did! :-(

First, the bad news:Yes, I did that.

A week ago, around 7 pm I was leaving the house with my mom and I backed up and hit the Mazda_3 with the Honda_Odyssey. How unfortunate! We usually park the minivan in the garage, to the right side (the garage fits two cars), but my dad had parked it in the center and I just wasn't careful backing up. It was my first accident of real consequence (I did almost hit a truck at an intersection many years ago in our university town, but the only result was a black scratch in our Honda_Civic's front bumper) and I feel so bad about it! Well, it was bound to happen someday and I'm kind of glad that I didn't hit another person's car. Another look: Edited to add:
P.S. The "good news" will be the posts about about the happy things such as birthday parties, commencement, and travels that will follow, that's why I began the post with "the bad news first" (i.e. before I go on to post about the good stuff).

Ohhhhhhhh! It pains me to look at that. :( So sorry. I'll look forward to the birthday photos. ;)

Sad day! Your poor minivan has been through a lot, huh?

Ouch - I'm so sorry about your cars! But you're right: it could have been worse. And the bright side is, they're broken in for when your boys get their learners' permits. (Have you found my "Car that Needs No Repair" yet?)

Thanks for visiting my blog and getting acquainted, Lilian...and thanks for your kind words. I hadn't heard of "Mama Ph.D." -- and I'm thrilling to my toes to know there are more of me out there!

I'm looking forward to discovering your story :)

Ooooo, I'm sorry, Lilian. But you're right, at least it didn't have to involve another driver and nobody was hurt. Also, it looks like just the plastic bumper covers are damaged, yes? Much easier on the wallet than replacing lights and/or panels!

Oh, so sorry. Glad no one was hurt! My bump in the garage didn't damage the car -- it just put a whole in the dry wall!

Nossa, que chato!!!!
Mas como vc disse, realmente teria sido pior se fosse no carro de outra pessoa... não sei como funciona essas coisas aí nos States, mas aqui é dor de cabeça na certa!
