One more positive

If I would have been in drive instead of reverse when I made my pedal mistake I would have hit our neighbor's car who has the annoying habit of parking in the alley directly opposite our garage. Probably would have done less damage to our car, but much damage to hers.

It could have been worse...much worse...

And yes, I will stop obsessing over this soon and get back to fun topics like babies and knitting.

It's hard to stop obsessing and replaying how you could have done things differently in your head after something like that. I was having a hard time for several weeks after my car accident in the fall - the good news is that your incident sounds much more minor than mine was, so you should have a shorter obsess-time (and no court date next week...). Keep looking for the positives!

The neighbor across the street is mostly parking on her property directly across from our garage. She sometimes parks slightly in the alley, which makes our maneuvers slightly more complicated. We have thought for a while about asking her to change her parking strategy, but that will require a sufficient amount of diplomacy to overcome things such as the fact that we don't really even know her name...
