This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 9 and 3 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Collision Calamity

My new little Honda of only a few months has met its demise. I got in a wreck the other day with my two little ones while running errands. It was purely an accident, I was pulling out of a gas station parking lot on a crazy intersection with busy traffic and didn't see a big truck coming fast out of no where. I'm quite lucky because half a second different and he would have T-boned me on the driver side.

It's the first real accident I've ever been in (as a driver) and I was very shaken up. The air bag deployed and my seat belt kept me very firmly in place... So firmly that I am developing bruises across my hips. Thank God the boys were buckled safely in their car seats so they were both unmarked.

The other driver just had a small dent and scratch on his truck and was very kind and helpful, as was everyone who came to our aid. A woman who lived right there brought us drinks and offered to cancel her appointment to stay with us! I called Nick at work and he showed up as they were towing my broken car off.

I'm so glad we are all OK, I know it could have been so much worse. My insurance company was awesome with the claim and arrangements were easily made. I didn't have the optional rental car coverage on my policy so I do have to pay for that.

I went in to work that night and they were kind and gave me a good pt assignment in the ICU. Thankfully I'm off for a few days now so I can try to rest and take care of business.

Life is just full of surprises for us!
