Congratulations! And thanks to all for commenting and following!
Well, the weather outside is frightful!I always love this time of year, but this time I love it more. Mostly because I'm so grateful we are all together as a family.
My husband was in a car wreck on the freeway after the most recent snow storm. His car slid out of control in the snow when he had to swerve after another car almost hit him. He crashed into the cement median, crushing the rear of the car and tearing off the back bumper.
He was stuck there, perilously trapped on the freeway in low visibilty, freezing his bum off for an hour waiting for 911 to respond. When a cop finally showed up--he gave my husband a ticket "because he must have been driving faster than was safe for weather conditions." My husband was surprised and aghast. He explained that he had only been going 45 mph and swerved to escape a collision with a truck coming into his lane-- causing his car to spin on the snow, the cop said he had already written the ticket--so to take it up with the judge. Way to pour lemon juice into a paper cut, huh?
Merry Frickin' Christmas, Quota Boy.
BUT thankfully the car was the only thing damaged--The pile up that could have happened and the injuries or deaths that could have occurred makes my stomach feel like a bag of ice cubes. So, who cares that we need a new car and have a ticket and all that. I'm not going to lie-- this has been a rough year in a lot of ways, but Christmas is one week away and my hubby is here with us. I'm snug inside the house with all of my shopping done and all of the gifts wrapped--The kids are out of school and we can spend fun time with them baking, partying, caroling, playing games and watching Christmas movies. Life is swell.
It's kind of like at the end of It's A Wonderful Life... maybe things were still a little tough-- but George Bailey was alive! So somehow it was all good.
