what a way to end Christmas. Yesterday we decided to go see “True Grit” at the new movie theater in a town 45 miles from us. It was a good movie. On the drive home we thought to stop and get something to eat before getting home. We were only 12 miles from home when a car hit us on the front passenger side. Their fault not ours. Mike is fine – me on the other hand – I am aching and sore in the chest area. We had our seat belts on and I didn’t fly into the windshield thank goodness, but it held me tight enough that I am very sore and have some mild swelling in the chest – breast bone area. X-Rays were taken and they could see no break. I was in ER for 3 hours. They also checked my heart and all was fine. I will just be sore for who knows how many days to come. I’m 58 years old and other than a couple minor fender benders years ago I have never been in an accident. Wish I hadn’t been in this one either.
Mike went to see the insurance agent this morning and then over to where they took the car to see what it looks like – it was paid for – almost 7 years old and at least 130,000 miles on it – I won’t be surprised if it isn’t totaled.
One funny thing about it all though is that the EMT that treated me at the scene and road with me in the ambulance was Larry – Vivian’s husband “Sew At Home On Pine Ridge”. I met Vivian last year (she lives about 50 miles from me) and we had been planning on having lunch this week! She had just posted a photo of her husband making breakfast Christmas morning and I recognized him immediately. I introduced myself and my husband to him – it felt really reassuring to me even though I had never met him. It was like I knew I was in good hands
I do feel sorry for the young driver and passengers though – a young man driving must have only been about 17, his sister in National Guard uniform was with him and her 2 little kids – thankfully they were all ok and I’m sure this will have been a learning experience for him to be more careful in the future – he was crying so upset.
Well I have been up long enough and it is time to lay back down again – talk to you all later!
