We started out this “extra weekend day” highly productive. We took my car across today to meet our insurance adjustor at the body shop. Last month, while pregnant and over scheduled I backed into a tree. $1,700 later, I will be getting a new tail light and bumper.
Then Mike and I took the girls on a 4.5 mile run/walk in our neighborhood. It was a beautiful day- and the girls hardly fought (of course that could have been because I packed a picnic for them to munch on while we ran).
Mike replaced air filters, washed cars, and organized the garage.
Although it is MLK day, I found out several exec’s at my office were working when I started getting phone calls. So I worked remotely for about 3 hours- until we decided to head to the farm.
So we load up the old kitchen table, along with the 4 wheeler onto our trailor- and start the 35 minute drive north.
Once we arrive at our “farm”, Mike makes a wide turn entering our driveway, as to get the trailor and SUV onto the small driveway.
THUMP- DROP- Stop
The left side of our Tahoe falls into a ditch- I look out my passenger side window and see the back tire IN THE AIR!
At this point I am thinking, ‘the car is about to fall over- how do I get the kids out?’
But Mike assures me it’s not going to flip- as he suggests getting them out and taking the trailor off.
Long story short, he tries to reverse since the Tahoe is straddling a deep ditch, only to pull off the grill and bumper.
Do I need to remind you that we started off the day at the body shop with MY SUV?
I said it last month (after my accident), and I’ll say it again- at least nobody was hurt.
We tried to redeem the afternoon by getting our contractor to pull us out with a Tractor (yes, this is the South) followed by a fun family 4-Wheeler ride around the farm.
On the plus side of no longer being pregnant, I realized two things today. 1) I was not naucious while driving to the farm this time and 2) I fit much better onto the 4-Wheeler without a tummy sticking into Kenley’s back (yes, all 4 of us sit on the seat). Hey, got to look at the silver lining.
And finally, capped off the long weekend with a new Beth Moore Bible study at my house (Daniel).
Another weekend gone, another week on the horizan. What oh what will this week bring?
