It Could Have Been Worse
Published on Saturday, June 30, 2012 by

This is it folks.  WE DID IT!  We made it to the last day of the 30-day writing challenge.  The final subject?  “It Could Have Been Worse.”  Honestly, I am the type of person to always look at the bright side.  When bad things happen, I really do tend to think, “It could have been worse.”

  • Monday I was hit by a car.  My life has changed dramatically from this simple hit.  I haven’t seen my gym in five days.  I can’t lift.  I can’t twist the way I used to.  I am now on vacation and won’t be able to body board or surf.  But it could have been worse.


  • Today I got stuck on a bridge for 3.5 hours in 108 degree heat with no air conditioner and no water.  I almost suffered from heat exhaustion.  I sweat so much my clothes were soaking, and then I just stopped sweating.  But it could have been worse.

  • On the way to Corolla I was stuck behind two drunk drivers and had a truck behind me with brights on.  But it could have been worse.

  • I have just completed a 30-day blog challenge.  My greatest regret was not having enough time in the day to visit every single post of everyone else, and to not even have time to reply to the comments people left.  But it could have been worse.


  • For 30 days I have enjoyed different twists and turns of a single subject, written by the most amazing writers I know.  Now that I don’t have to post every single day, I plan to go back and indulge in the ones I have missed.  Each and every one of you are truly amazing writers!

    OMG, Katherine, it’s the same thing here…’s soooooooooooo HOT!!!! All I keep doing is sweating and then drinking a ton a water to replenish my fluids.

    Congrats and brava to you for completing this 30-day writing challenge! I’ve enjoyed reading your posts and several other bloggers who have also participated.

    Woot! Woot!

    Stay cool and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    You were hit by a car!!! Hello you hve a friend who is a PT!! let me know if I can help.

  • Thanks for tweeting about the challenge and getting me into this in the first place. It’s been amazing.  I hope you will recover quickly from your injuries and enjoy your vacation.

  • Congratulations on surviving the bridge ordeal, as well as the 30-day writing challenge. I admire that you stuck it through to the end. I jumped in on Day 17 and still found it quite challenging.

    Btw, was that body board or water board? I guess they’re both torture.

    Woooohoooooooo!  Congratulations and well done YOU.

    Oh….and by the way……We enjoyed every single day of it!  🙂

  • Yes, we indeed it!  Sorry you’ve had a rough week.  I bet the time at the beach, even if you can’t do everything you’d like will be helpful to your recovery, both physical and mental.  Wish I were there, too.  

  • You’ve really had a tough week and I can’t believe you still posted, even after your accident! You are a brave, dedicated, inspiring and strong woman, Katherine. Thank you for being a part of this challenge. (((Hugs)))

  • WHEN was this picture taken??  Why wasn’t I invited?
    Frankly, I’m a little offended.

    As I said on another post, some of these posts are reminding me of graduating high school or college! We did it! 😀

  • I love you girl!  This reminded me of that old joke. 

    “Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?”

    Katherine say, “It could have been worse.”

  • We could do with a bit of sweating here. We’ve had rain daily all through the, so called, spring and summer, with floods everywhere.  We even had a tornado last week, in the most violent storm Britain has ever seen!  I most definitely could have written 30 posts on rain.

    It could have been worse though. We could have had an earthquake 🙂

  • Hoooray! Congrats on completing the challenge. You rock the casbah! xoxoxo

  • I just found your blog today, and was sad to read that I missed out on that writing challenge! It certainly would have done me good to have known about it and participated myself! Hopefully I’ll know about the challenge and participate the next time around. For now, I’m going to be poking around and reading the other challenge posts. Good going!

  • Goodness me! Well – it could also have been better…! Well done for making it through all that…
