Another weekend gone with a blink of an eye. This one was a rougher one than most. It began with a hit and run I was involved in on Thursday night. A car came flying out of no where from behind me as I was making a turn and defaced the front of my car. The worst part was that Rylee was with me. After seeing the car that hit me stop quite a ways ahead and put on his hazzards, I pulled myself together and checked to make sure my baby was fine. We were both fine, untouched (praise God). Amidst some tears and shaking hands I looked ahead again to see where the car was that hit me. No where to be found. I waited there a while, hoping that someone might stop to help or tell me where the other car had gone. But after 15 minutes…no one stopped. Not a single person with the exception a homeless man who had found my grill on the other side of the road and walked over to return it to me. The lone kind samaritan. Out of all the nice cars that passed me by….the one person that wanted to help was the guy that didn’t have one. Ironic. Not knowing what to do, I got back in my car to see if it wouldn’t make it home. (The accident happened just minutes from my house.) Even with the messed up alignment and near dragging bumper….”mama bear”, as I call her, limped home. Sam came racing home from work after I called him in a panic right after the accident happened. He helped me sort out all the insurance stuff and sat with me as I talked with the police about what happened. It sucks that the innocent party on something like this ends up paying out of their own pocket….all for a night they’d rather forget. But I suppose close calls like this remind us of what’s really important. And I’m so thankful Rylee and I were not hurt. Life is unpredictable isn’t it? Everything can change in an instant. We were just lucky.
Anyway, after the accident, Sam came down with the cold….which then was passed along to baby. Surprisingly, I somehow managed to dodge it. But it didn’t make the weekend much easier. Poor baby seems to be feeling a little better today….but I am well, exhausted. And I would love a re-do weekend….please?
