Bumps on Life's Highway...

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

I last blogged on Sunday, Feb. 7th. The very next day, on my way home from work, I was in a car accident.

I had left school w/ the twins and we were headed home when a man turned in front of me and I hit him. Luckily there were no major injuries, however, my son did have contusions on his face. Oh....I cannot even tell you how horrible it felt to see him in so much pain. He was big and brave, but boy, did his face look rough :( This is him on day #3 - looking a lot better than the two previous days...

The weather just happened to cooperate, as the 2 days following the accident, we had off school due to a snow storm. It gave me time to nurse my son, go to Dr. appointments, and deal with insurance stuff. My son has now healed from the wounds...you can barely tell at all.

All is well again and life has continued on....the kids are back to piano lessons, cheer practices, and fighting over the Wii....it's all good :)

I'm very much ready for the arrival of spring. I need to get outdoors and expend some energy. I've got "winter butt" going on and it won't fit into my jeans - I need to exercise more LOL!! I've faltered a few days with my diet, but as always...I won't fret. Life's handed me some bumps lately and I'm riding through them - pretty well, if I do say so myself. Blessings to you all....

    Wow, I am so sorry about the accident. Thank the Lord you were all ok. I bet your son loved going to school with his war wounds. So scary. You have a beautiful outlook on things. Love it.

    wow. I am so glad y'all are alright. How scary. your son is adorable and I'm happy he's all healed up now. I'm not worried one bit about your "winter butt" because I know that soon you'll turn it into a "summer butt" and your jeans will probably be too big! :)

    Holly I'm so sorry. I'm sure the accident and injuries to your son. I'm glad to hear he's healing and that everything is okay. Wow....sometimes the challenges are huge! Glad you had a couple of days to regroup and get back to "normal". Don't worry your "winter butt" will disappear in no time......weather permitting. Happy Friday! emoticon Laurie

    Oh my gosh, girlfriend!!! How scary!! I'm so glad that none of you were hurt worse than you were!! Your poor son. I hope the guy has good insurance!!

    I so need spring as well. I need the exercise as I am getting my minimum. Not a good thing for me. Not eating well enough either.

    I'm glad you and the kids are alright. I've been in a couple accidents too and know what it feels like.

    I have to say... I'm feeling a bit heavy these days as well. I know I've gained a few pounds and sadly can say that I've not ran since classes begun this year. With last semester having such a heavy coarse load it was really the last thing I was thinking about and even able to do. So I completely understand that feeling you are having too.

    So sorry about the accident, that can be so scary. Now you know how speed can make it so much worse. I'm like you on the winter, I need to get my butt outdoors and do some serious farmin!

    OMG I'm so glad you are all ok & your son is healing! How scary!!!

    I hear you about spring -- getting couped up!!!!

    Poor little guy. He is such a trooper! "Winter butt" makes me laugh. I just commented on another friend's page that I saw a story on the news a couple days ago about this. With all the snow we've been having and everyone being cooped up and eating, a lot of people are getting what they are calling "blizzard body" or "blizzard butt."

    Your poor boy, I can only imagine how hearbreaking it was for you to see him like this.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm glad everyone is recovering. I'm also ready for Spring... but not ready for Spring shopping. I have no clothes to fit me. =(
