On Saturday, I was supposed to try on dresses with my ma, but my dad and littlest sister got in a horrible car accident. Totaled my dad's car. Scared the sh!t outta me, but they are both a-okay now. (My dad got the worst of it, big bump on his forehead, lots of cuts on his face, broke his glasses, blood everywhere. gah).
My poor little sister (she is only twelve) was like "That was traumatic," as she recapped what had happened to me in the car on the ride home from the hospital. Air bags went off and everything. They hit a parked water truck when my dad's car lost its grip on a highway ramp. I dunno exactly what caused it, but I bet the slippery weather conditions contributed... Some nice guy that was driving behind them when it happened pulled over and ran to help them/call 911. My dad's car called my mom to tell her to go to the scene. Freakin' scary ass morning.
Once they were both released from the hospital and everyone was back at my mom's house, (my parents are separated as of like March? weirdness... anyway). My dad asked if FI and I would finalize our choice for a venue, so he could try to negotiate the price/reserve the date FI and I want: August 4, 2012. And we did!
Thanks for reading. All the "what ifs" have been running through my mind since I found out they were in an accident. Awful thoughts, but also I consider this best case scenario, because they didn't die, or hit any other people, etc etc.
