Literally, physically….. seriously! I was driving on the freeway, minding my own business, going to work on Saturday (which stinks all on it’s own) so that I can enjoy Christmas with out stressing about the upcoming deadline, when I heard tires screeching. I look over and BAM, then BAM again, and then finally BAM and I stop. Yes that was three BAMS! This girl slammed on her brakes to not hit the car in front of her ( traffic in that lane was slowing down) so instead her car turned and hit my car on the back passenger side. That spun my car back into her car again on the front part of my car and A LOT harder. That hit sent my car flying across the lane and slammed me into the concrete median dividing the two sides of the freeway. My head started pounding so I reached up and there was blood oozing out of my head. I FREAKED OUT. I’m ok I think, I have a nasty cut on my head that bled for a good two hours after the wreck, and feel like I got hit by a train. My whole body is achy, but no one was seriously hurt so I am sooooo thankful for that. I called 911, and I would like to say that they are not near so nice as those on Star people on those commercials :-) Here is how it went…
Me “I’ve been hit”
Operator “Where are you located”
Me “Across from Albertsons on XXXX (road)”
Me “I can’t get out of my car”
Op “Are you hurt”
Me “I don’t know”
Op “Do you need an ambulance”
Me “I don’t know, my head is bleeding”
Op “OK I will send one just in case”
Ok seriously, I’ve been hit, can’t get out of my car (that implies BIG wreck and body damage to either me or the car) and your asking me if you should send an ambulance. Your the expert here, what do you think. Anywho, the Fire and Ambulance guys were really nice and helpful. I didn’t talk to the girl who hit me because she was across the street. Needless to say my car was not drivable. :-( Here are some pics from the towing place and my head. Pay no attention to my inch long roots that I should have gone again and fixed yesterday, but now I will have to wait until this cut heals. I can only imagine the pain of hair dye in an open cut for 25 to 30 minutes. Suck!!! No car and dark root… Merry Christmas. Oh, and I really wish the picture better displayed the trauma of the whole thing. Why do pictures never look as bad a the events when they happen. And now on to the show….
Don’t you just love Texas weather. Friday was 83 and today(Sunday) just two days later it’s 40. It was snowing in Thanksgiving and we will probably be back in shorts at Christmas. I envy those who can “put away” their summer cloths to free up room in the closet for the winter cloths and vise versa. But I wouldn’t live anywhere else… well maybe Colorado because I also envy those who can go skiing whenever they want ;-)
Ok, I just posted my first video to blogger, and well, the quality lacks to say the least. So… I am going to test drive some new programs. Mi-Lo “whatever” . com is going Live in early 2008, so I need to find a good blog network that supports high res video files between now and then. So, stay tuned for updates on what is to come and sneak peeks at the new Mi-Lo for 2008! Thanks for a good 2007 and together we can make a great 2008!
and in no way is this refering to my first car… hahaha. I loved that car, but anywho… I am speaking of Miss E, who loves to have her picture taken most of the time. Well, my sister has given Miss E her old camera from our childhood (we both had identical kiddy Kodak cameras) and over Thanksgiving Miss E wanted to “take pictures” and by that she meant that she wanted to play photo shoot where she got to “take” pictures ( there was no film in the camera). She was so cute. She would say “So who should we do next” My sister, Ethan, and Craig were they only ones to humor us :-) She got Craig in front of the tree, took his picture, and said, “Ok, you can go now”!! Too cute! So we were taking pictures, and I sat down on the floor, so she had to also. She is just the cutest thing EVER!!! Ok, enough procrastination, now I really have to go work on Christmas cards…
