Oy Vey


What a weekend.

My hubby and I drove up to Kentucky for the Breeder's Cup this past weekend. I'll post about it later, once I get all the photos off the camera.

We drove my parents' Avalon, because it is more reliable for long trips than either of our vehicles.

Had a flat tire we couldn't change (lug nuts were inhumanely tight) on Saturday night.

Then on Sunday night, just outside of Dothan, we rear-ended someone at a stoplight. I don't know what happened exactly, neither does Hubby, because it happened so fast. Apparently there is some question of fault because the other car may have been stopped at a green light right around a blind corner. I don't know. We didn't get a ticket, so I suppose the cops didn't know either.

The car we were driving was totaled, the other car just had a dented bumper (Ford Explorers are tanks!). Thankfully, other than some serious aching, everyone was fine.

In fact, I was the only one who even got admitted to the hospital, and that was just because I was having trouble breathing from being smacked in the chest by the air bags and seatbelt. I'm a really small gal, and air bags don't get along well with small people.

Still. It could have been much worse. The pictures don't really do justice to just how destroyed the car was.

New Friends

Well, I haven't posted in a bit, but since I am up late watching the election results I thought it might be a good time to do so. Not going to touch politics though, those who know me probably know my views, and I'm not going to preach at the blogosphere. =P

The puppy that stayed with us over the weekend in my last post was absolutely adorable and incredibly sweet. Honestly, he is an amazing dog in his own regard and he got along with Indy, so if we had been looking for another dog he probably would not have left. Stevie was very hard to get a photo of, but I managed to get one (literally, just the one) not super blurry picture of him.

Isn't he a cutie? The photo does not at all do him justice.
