Stressful afternoon....

Today was a pretty good day. I was pretty busy at work. My new position makes the days fly by. I love it!!!!

After work, I went by and picked up Bailey. She had a great day. We decided to go to Wal-Mart and get the oil changed in my truck. Things went well in there. She didn't have any meltdowns. We picked up some fall decorations for home and my bulletin board at school. Thanks to Donkey - I am now the proud owner of some pumpkins and gourds for my front porch. :-) Anyways, we are leaving Wal-Mart and I call Dusty to tell him we are on our way. I am probably a mile from the house, when I see cars stopped in front of me. I stop and look in my rear view mirror and see a truck pulling a trailer racing towards me. I know there is absolutely no way that truck can stop in time with that trailer behind him. I have enough wits to pull into the turning lane before the guys slams into the back of me. He hit us, but only the back passenger side. The truck jack knifes and the trailer slams the driver's side of the truck. Oh, it was ugly. I throw the truck in park, jump out and check on Bailey. I swing the door open and she looks at me, points to the dvd player and says "Look momma, Kipper". She didn't have a clue that anything had happened. Her world revolved around a British dog cartoon named Kipper. We are fine. I am just really shaken. It scared me to think how quickly things can happen. As for my truck - well that sucks!!! I haven't made a payment on it yet. It has been through 4 states running from a hurricane and now a wreck. Whew! I am beginning to think that truck might be unlucky.

Speaking of luck. Just thought I would tell you that the Lethal Ladybugs are 4-0. Woo-hoo!

Love you all,

I am SO SO glad that you and Bailey are okay!! I hate being in a just get shaken up and it takes days and sometimes weeks to get over that adrenaline rush you get.

I'm so excited you bought some pumpkins and gourds...take a pic so I can see :)

What is your new position at school?????

You really need to check out this blog...if you don't already.

This blog is the reason why I started blogging in the first place. I thought it would be a good idea for you to comment on her latest post and list your sweet baby Sarah Grace as one of the babies. She has a ton of people that read her blog and it never hurts to have that many people praying for you.
