Grandma got run over by a Ford Expedition
Hey guys! So, how do I celebrate my 1 yr blog anniversary? By getting into a wreck. (sigh).
She got out of her car and was SHAKING. She was apologizing over and over again, and was pretty frieked out. She told me it was her first wreck, and at least she wasn't on her cell phone or a total jerk-ass redneck like the last woman. I started assuring her it was fine, and it was no big deal, and she kept trying to get me away from traffic. She was really upset, just a little old grandma who made a simple mistake. We call the police and Brent speeds up, jumps out and is about to lay into the little old lady when I stop him and tell him "it's ok" so he takes pictures instead. When it's fight or flight he's ready to take down any old lady who wants to run into me! I told him we were all fine and he could go back to work. The police arrive, he does his thing and sends us on our way. She was very nice, it all comes down to attitude. If she had been mean or rude it would've been a terrible experience. But we were both calm and friendly, so it just wasn't a big deal. When I called her insurance company this afternoon she had already started the claims process. She gave me her card, and it turns out she works for the new kitchen supply store nearby, so maybe she can hook me up with some gourmet kitchen appliances at cost!
I seriously doubt I will ever buy a nice, new car. What's the point????
I also got to meet the lady buying our house today! The inspection was at 4 and there was supposed to be another showing at 5. I ran in a little before 5 to grab Pippin and they were still "inspecting". She's very nice, I like her. She really likes the house, so I know she'll take good care of it. We should hear back about our offer sometime tonight! I know they will counter, so hopefully they will still be reasonable.
Well, that's about all the news around here (as if that's not enough of a day for anyone!). This morning as I was walking Pips I thought "Man, I'm so jealous of people who just have time to lay around and watch hours of TV." Then my thoughts really changed and I thought "You know, I'm really NOT jealous of those people. I'm jealous of the people who have time to get out and run and exercise! That's where the fun is". You just never know when your time is up, and if you waste it by being a gross, lazy couch potato that's totally on you. I know our schedules will slow down really soon, but until then......I'll squeeze in my runs here and there!
Here's another cute pic of Brent and Pippin I took today I would have put in here if stupid Blogger wasn't a PAIN in the ass!! I don't know why they just can't handle photos lately. It's so annoying!!! So sorry for all the links to Flickr, but I just have too many pics to share!!
Have a great night!
P.S. I'm working on updating my template with races, links, etc. It's SO out of date! It's a little funky right now but I hope to have it all sorted out this weekend!
