Hubs was bringing the girls home from a birthday party in our little Corolla and was driving along River Road in the rain this afternoon when a hubcap flew off the car in front, hit our left front lights area, bounced up and hit the windshield right in front of him. He put his arm up just as it hit so no glass got in his eyes, but he had it all over him and the front seat and floor of the car. Fortunately none hit the girls in the back and he is okay otherwise. The car had to be towed since the windshield is shattered, but that is seriously scary. The police lady said he was lucky to be alive and that is obvious...if that hadn't bounced just right and the windshield wasn't safety glass I think I wouldn't have a family right now. He was able to stop the car safely surprisingly enough with rainy road and a shattered windshield and glass all over him, and all I can say is wow. Crying and whew.

Good thing we have another car, too...hopefully it won't cost too much get replaced, but they are safe and that is what counts Yes

Oh Synch, how terrible. I am so glad that all are safe. You never know what will happen at any given moment. I know your hubby probably had a complete collapse once he got home. Give him and the girls extra hugs tonight.

Just wait until the teacher asks after Spring break, how did your week go? What a story for them to tell.

Best wishes for you all.

The driver never stopped, so we don't know. I have had this feeling since the father of my daughter's friend died in the accident a couple of weeks ago that something was coming, so hopefully that was what it was and the feeling will ease. My sister had breast cancer surgery a few days ago and I guess it's just seemed as if another shoe would drop...perhaps that was it and things will be okay.

Nope, we have no idea who the driver was and we are stuck replacing it, but that beats what could have happened and windshields are just glass. Thanks for the Hug I feel as if I have some emotions I need to let out, but that will come when the time is right.

Something may be coming Sync, but I believe it may be something good. You deserve it and you're due.

Thanks, Blue. You are sweet. You are right that I need to focus on that and let go of anything else. Thanks for reminding me Hug

Good morning everybody.

After evading and avoiding the appearance of evil for a week, it appears the crud has reached out and lightly touched my brow. I have no where near the symptoms that Puf and B-Man had, but I feel just bad enough to keep me fairly inactive this morning. Hopefully it won't worsen...I have to work tomorrow...staying out is NOT an option.

Clearing this morning, and no chance of rain for the next three days. High 70s for temps.

Hope everybody has a great day!

OH, SYNC! Bigger hug than this -> Hug I am so so thankful your family is safe.

Good morning, Sassy and all. I am meeting the family at the park this afternoon to enjoy this pretty weather. sunny

It's also to meet my son's girlfriend for the first time. They've been dating since December. We didn't even know about her because like his father & UNlike his mother & sister, he's a private young man. He'd just say he was going to hang out with friends. The son and girlfriend received stressful news this week. Even though she is on the pill, she is pregnant. They are both still in shock and SO not ready to talk marriage. So, they are just taking it as slow as two people can who just made a baby together, bless their little pointy heads. They had both planned to start college in the fall and I hope they are still able to do that. Along with grant or student loans, they may have to alternate schedules with part-time jobs to afford it and care for the baby, but I don't recommend attempting to raise a child without a degree these days. It was hard enough in my day. Anyhoo, sorry so long, but thanks for listening. Smile

Oh Joy, I know this isn't how they planned things, but raising a child and going to college really is doable. I got my degree while raising a baby and my ex was in college as well. It was hard, but it was doable, and the cool part is their child can learn along with them. Whatever happens with their relationship they can do the best they can to parent, and the child will always know college is important and get a good education right along with them. I read textbooks to my baby to study while he was young and turns out he was listening and learning...lol. I wish them the best whatever they do and I hope that they will take advantage of all the aid offered them. Congrats to you as well...looks as if you are having a grandchild Smile

This made me think of when we were both in school and passed my son back and forth as we went to classes...lol. It was funny now that I look back at it, and although it was hard, I ended up with a BS and lots of grad school and he ended up ...well, something past the MA degree (he never wanted to do anything but go to college, so not sure what he ended up with after we divorced Giggle ).

Sassy, I hope this is all the crud you get and it goes away quickly!

Good morning Very Happy

B-man is back to normal, i'm feeling much better......and now Sassy is feeling "iffy" Sad


Sync, i hope the enormity of yesterday's event didn't keep y'all from getting a good night's sleep .......i'm sure it was needed.

Joy, you have quite a day lined up. I wish your son and his girlfriend well with the direction their life is taking....and the baby has at least one wonderful grandma all lined up, so that's a great start in his/her life right there Very Happy

He did, lmm. He was ready for bed at 6 or before and was thoroughly exhausted. He showered the glass off himself and hit the couch for the evening. The girls didn't realize what happened until he told them since they just heard a big sound and saw a broken windshield. They didn't get for awhile how close it was and didn't see the concrete edge in the ditch next to them where they would have ended up. Good thing, too. I wouldn't want them to be afraid...their classmate's father's death shook them and us too, actually. Too bad I get it though...I will have to make myself let them leave the house without me..lol. But that is life and I will do some healing, make sure hubs does as needed, and we are very fortunate.

That poor little car has had a rough life..lol. We were in a snowstorm right after the girls were born and on the way to see them in NICU slid on ice and went round and round across the 4 lanes in NJ on the highway, slid off the road, into a ravine, and landed against trees. Not a scratch on us or the car, missed all the other cars on the road..wow. Then we had it parked in the apartment parking lot there and the snowplow guy ran the plow right over the whole back end of the poor little car. Now it has a dent on the right back from someone hitting us and leaving in a parking lot, the dent on the left front lights from yesterday, and will need a new windshield. All of that and it runs fine, no one has ever been hurt, and it's never been a wreck we caused at all. I have to say that little 99 Corolla has done its job..lol. Clap Clap Clap

GUS!! GRATS! There's nothing grander. Very Happy

Thanks y'all for the kind words. I try to act all together and okay about stuff, but I am setting aside time for a good cry real soon. Sometimes, for ladies at least, that makes all the difference in the world...haha. Hug all around

Sassy, sorry you are feeling bad...hope it's doesn't get any worse & you are well soon.
