Car Crash - Ouch!
Well T-Dad left for his "boys weekend" on Friday morning. So I was on kid-duty, solo all weekend. I picked the kids up on Friday evening and we went through the Hardees drive-thru for 2 cheeseburgers and an Orange Cream milkshake. Halfway home on Hwy 45, we were just minding our own business, a pick-up truck crashed into the driver's side while we passed the cross street Leverett Rd. We spun around and struck a hwy sign and came to a stop in the ditch. Fortunately, Bug (3 yr) and MealyWorm(1 yr) were buckled into their car seats securely and no one was injured. Milkshake everywhere! Crying kids. Very shaken up Mom. But everything was OK. I talked to the kids and they calmed down, I said "We just got "bumped", but we're okay". Bug was interested when I told him a policeman was going to come check on us. Fortunately, my neighbor happened to be driving by and stopped! He was sooooo wonderful. We got the carseats out of the mangled car and into his van. And he took the kids back to his house to play with his kids. And I stayed to wait for the tow trucks and finish up the police report. The other guys was issued a citation and was totally at fault. The weekend was definately "thrown off" a bit with all that. Fortunately, my awesome neighbors let me borrow their van for the weekend, since I still had no car. (T-Dad wasn't due back until Sunday evening) So the weekend shaped up okay and this morning I got the ball rolling on insurance adjustments, renting a car, etc. What a pain. But thank God, no one was hurt.
