So just when we thought we had a plan, things changed.

We slept in this morning and then headed to Wachovia to drop a check our pajamas. Of course, the day I wear my pajamas out of the house is the day we get in a major car accident. We pulled out to turn left onto a 4 lane divided highway, didn't see a car coming from our left and got completely t-boned.

David and I hit our heads together and the other driver claimed to be bruised (she was not a very credible or level-headed person though) but overall everyone is okay, which is what's important. David's car, on the other hand, is not okay and has a new permanent home in the junkyard.

So...we're still planning on heading to the beach, just in 1 car for now. We're thankful that no one was seriously injured and that a car can easily be replaced, but it has been a LONG day. On a brighter note, we all get a little sun while we waited 4 hours for the highway patrol. Some people pay a lot of money for UV rays and we got them for free. Gotta love Florida :)

PS aren't onomatopias funny? "Crash" and "boom" sure do a lousy job of describing the sound when you're sitting in the middle of it.


  1. We're glad you guys are okay. Sorry about David's car - but hooray for a little sun, right?! xoxo

    P.S. I told Mary that you guys were in a car accident and she said "oooh. Dave is a good boy."

  2. WOW. What a bummer. But, at least you survived AND you still got to go to the beach! FYI - I loved reading all you're other posts and if it's ok, I'm adding your blog to my blog!!
    P.S. We might be coming down for labor day, will you guys be in town?
