First off - I'm all right. But the car is not. While waiting at a three-way stop, I had a woman slam into the back of the mini van. I swear she was going full speed. At least I was stopped, had my seatbelt on and have great headrests. Yikes.
What is great is that we still have Big Grandma's BIG car - the Mercury. So while Courtney's car sat at the airport parking lot waiting for him to come home, I was still able to tool around. The girls didn't like it, tho. It's not their favorite to drive the "old persons car."
Courtney and I went to pick up the rental car today. Now I can pick up the girls from school in mini van style again.
This past weekend, I tried to lay low and take it easy. It seemed that instead of the golden touch I had the "let's break everything" touch. The dryer stopped working, my phone had issues, the cat peed somewhere where she shouldn't have, the toilet backed up, I could keep listing things but I'd rather not dwell anymore on them! The good stuff - Nazeriah had a soccer jamboree, the first of the middle school soccer season. Here team won all three games, even beating their main rival. Luckily it was also down the street from where we live. Then she was able to go over to a soccer friends house for the afternoon. Kaija, Chayton and I hung out at the house. I think I even took a nap. :)
Chayton kept himself busy reading and building. That day it was a couch fort.
Sunday was more rest time - but also chores. Chayton, Kaija and I washed Blue for the first time. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be! By Monday, I think everything in my emotional state had calmed back down to normal. Which is good - I really don't need a lot of drama in my life.
The weekend before, the girls were off at a friend's house. Chayton took full advantage of all the attention. We were able to catch a HomeDepot craft day, lunch out at Doug's Downtown Deli and he still had time to construct his outdoor living room in our magnolia trees. Too bad there was poison oak around there somewhere. He's still dealing with the after affects of that run in.
