Well.....Today was suppose to be spent hanging out with family and enjoying a bit of a family reunion in Ohio, but instead fate decided to throw a nasty wrench in our plans. I'm only doing an outfit post today because I wanted to let off some steam while wearing on of my favorite dresses.
On our way to our destination we decided to pull off at an exit to head to a Chick-fi-la so Zach could take a break from driving and refuel on some chicken breakfast biscuits. It was very dark on this particular exit ramp and neither Zach nor I could make out which way the curve went. And then the accident. When we realized we were heading in the wrong direction of the curve, Zach went ahead and put on his breaks a little too hard and spun out our car and there it went into the guard rail. It was probably the most scary things that ever happened to either of us. I've been in one fender bender, but nothing compared to that. We were okay, but I got a little banged up in my legs and my shoulders. Nothing a little rest and Tylenol can't cure. And of course our car looks like a piece of paper all crumpled up. At least on the front end. I'm thinking it's totaled, but we won't find out till Monday.
Maybe the highlight of the ordeal was when the tow truck driver said, "At least you got to experience one of those movie car crashes!!" At that point I wasn't in the mood for jokes, but he was only trying to make us feel better. So then we were stranded in Richmond, 2 hours away from home, waiting for my Dad to drive up to save us from our ordeal. By the way, we were starving because we never made it to Chick Fi La, so when my Dad came to get us, he decided to treat us to breakfast at Shoneys. That was a breath of fresh air, after 4 hours of just sitting and waiting and calling this person and that person.
So now we are home trying to turn lemons into lemon-aide. I think tomorrow will be spent doing some retail therapy, movie therapy, ice cream therapy...you know...have a vacation. Since that's what we had planned to do.
