All is quiet and peaceful on this front at the moment, since the whole house is napping so it seems like an appropriate time for a post.
We had a bummer this week. Tuesday night on the way home from work, I got a call from Michael saying his car had stalled and that he was stuck...one car down, one to go. While trying to troubleshoot and figure out what was wrong, hoping for some help from my Dad, I managed to look away and slam into the back of my brother's vehicle. Yikes! Two vehicles down, zero to go. Considering the circumstances and that none of us wished to be in a crash, I am very thankful if it was going to happen, that it happened the way that it did. Joel, is one of the guys we work with and he luckily saw the whole thing happen and was able to help. Mom, luckily had not left work yet so she was able to come pick us up. Nobody was seriously injured. Both cars have potential to be totaled but we have not heard from the insurance company yet. It was a big bad bummer. But no one was hurt, so we pick up the mess and life goes on.
My midwife was a little concerned that we did not call 911 because usually they would have sent me to the ER and I would've been hooked up to an EFM (external fetal monitor) for a few hours but we didn't. And she (my midwife) didn't know about it until the following day. So, I just paid close attention to his movement, contracting, and a few others signs and things seemed fine, so we are carrying on as usual.
There are situations and experiences that just make me so much more thankful for everything - health, family, friends. It was amazing the out pouring of love from family and friends. My parents and siblings could not have been a bigger help- picking us up, lending us a vehicle, emotional support, feeding us, helping us in every way possible and still loving us through it all. And let me tell you, we have some awesome friends- letting us vent and be emotional, sending us a special gift, telling us how much they love us, offering help...the list goes on. Thank you! We love and appreciate you all!
Enough rambling- hope you are all having a happy Sunday!
