I was on way my home planning to run a couple errands on the way. I took a different route than usual. The roads were really not that bad where I was driving. That is until an oncoming car swerved into my lane to avoid rear-ending the car infront of her and hit me head on. The road was icy and she couldn't help sliding. Ayden cried on impact and my first instinct was to get him OUT OF THE CAR! I jumped out and pulled his car seat out of the back. A really nice lady pulled over and let us get into her car and out of the negative below temperatures. I escaped with only chest, neck and back pain/soreness.
My poor car "has a big boo-boo" according to Allie. I miss my car already...it spent 11 years with me, beginning with right after Todd and I got married. It's driven me to work for my entire teaching career. It's hauled our stuff when we moved...twice. It's taken both our babies home from the hospital. I loved this car! It was cute and small and just perfect for me. Although, over time I wished it had a third row seat and the technology to play my iPod...it was a 2003.
I'm sooooo extremely sad it's gone...just like that. But so extremely thankful we are both ok. Cars can be replaced...people can't.
