Car accident

Monday, December 26, 2011

My daughter and I went out today because she had a doctors appointment and then we went out to lunch. We drove out of the parking lot and up to the line of cars waiting at the stoplight.
We were just sitting there for about a minute when the driver ahead of us puts on his backup lights and stepped on the gas pedal so fast I didn't have time to think! He SLAMS into us and shatters the windshield, the airbags deployed and the front end of the car sustained extensive damage!
My daughter is 13 years old and she was pretty shook up as well as I was. She didn't even want to go to that town again after that.
I know she will again in time but it is always harder on the kids because their world is so traumatized by things more than adults.
We are totally in the clear as far as our insurance having to pay anything because we were not at fault at all.
Even the police that came out to the scene said there was a lot of damage for just backing up and running into someone. he told me he was going to give the other driver a ticket but he wasn't sure exactly what he was going to get him for. He seemed really frustrated with the other driver because he was backing up and trying to go another route instead of waiting for the traffic. He was impatient.
Oh well, we will see what comes of it. Our car is probably going to be totalled since there was so much damage done.
Hugs to all, I hope you all have a safe holiday season!

    Oh my word! I am so glad you both are OK! That is scary. People just need to relax and quit being in such a hurry. I'm glad he has insurance and it will take care of everything for you though. On the bright side....maybe you will get a fun, new car! LOL!

    Oh, my gosh! Who would have thought you could get that much damage from someone backing in to you? He must have floored it! So sorry you and your daughter had to go through this, and sorry the car is damaged! emoticon

Praise the Lord you were not seriously hurt!

    I am so sorry that this happened to you & your daughter!!

What a pain that his inability to sit still a couple of minutes will now cause you hours and days of inconvenience. :(

My husband was at a redlight and rear ended by an 18 wheeler. It was such a bummer because his car was paid for and we had no desire for a new car note. At first he was not feeling injured, but 2-3 weeks later he actually had some pretty bad back pain surface. It can be very delayed -- so take it good & easy and take care!

So grateful that most importantly you are both fine! The car can be handled, but your lives are precious and irreplaceable!!

Take care! H U G S!!!

    Good grief. Sometimes I think I am paranoid taking my books back to the library drop off at 6:30 a.m. but then I read a story like this and see the cars just whizzing around. I hope neither of you are injured. Please rest and take care of yourselves this evening and tomorrow. Sorry you'll probably have to deal with "the bureaucracy"!

    Oh my goodness. I just had this talk with my kids yesterday about not getting in a hurry on the road. It doesn't save that much time in the long run and it isn't worth the frustration. I'm glad you're ok.

    Thank God that you & your daughter were not hurt. Don't you just wonder what people are thinking when they do something stupid?? I guess he wasn't thinking. Good Luck with getting everything all straightened out and another car on the road.

back again

Sunday, December 25, 2011

Here we are back from Christmas vacation.
We stayed in an awesome hotel in New Jersey!
There were beautiful lights, and a very classy atmosphere.
There was a fitness room and pool also.
I want to go back again soon, since it was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed.

Staying warm

Friday, December 23, 2011

Tonight we will be inside keeping warm and staying out of the crazy shoppers way!
There are a lot of people on the roads and out shopping right now and traffic is backed up. Also people are getting off work besides.
My daughter and I went out from 3:00 until 5:00 and the roads were so busy and there were a lot of people in where we had to go pick up 1 thing. We got our things quick and got out and came home since neither one of us like crowds!
I hope everybody has got their shopping done!

Rainy day again

Thursday, December 22, 2011

Today is another rainy day but it is nice that the temperature is around 50 degrees today.
I have been enjoying the weather from inside! I don't like to go out on rainy days at all to do anything... even if it is raining only real lightly.
Tomorrow though is supposed to get colder.
Everybody keep warm and dry!

Rainy day

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

I have a pretty boring blog today. It is rainy outside and I am staying in and keeping warm and dry. hard to believe, I live in Eastern Pennsylvania and it is late december and it is 55 degrees out today! Looks like no snow for Christmas in the forecast but I guess that is ok. It could be worse, we could have 20 inches of snow, like New Mexico has right now!
Hugs to all!

    Staying inside, warm & dry is really nice on a day like today. I ran a few errands and got super soaked once in an extra heavy downpour. Thankfully the rest of the time it had stopped! I had to take my jacket off, it was so warm out - that part I did like!

Hugs ~ enjoy your evening! emoticon

    Sounds like everything is backwards, right? We are having rain and heavy fog here in Michigan today, no snow on the ground at all! Anything beats shoveling that snow!
