Wow, it’s been a doozy of a week. As you will see in my Friday 5 thoughts and photos below, my week has been packed with all sorts of adventures, experiences and emotions. I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving and have some exciting weekend plans.
1). On Monday night around 6:00pm, I was on my way to a meeting, driving about 20 mph, listening to Adele’s new album (again) when out of the blue, I was slammed into from behind. It was a chain reaction involving four cars and I was in the front. Luckily, I didn’t hit anyone in front of me. If you’ve ever been in a wreck, there’s nothing like that awful sound. It hasn’t even been a year since the terrible wreck I was in with Case where we were hit in the side and flipped over. I spent most of Monday evening talking to emergency personnel and getting evaluated in the ER. I’m so over wrecks.
2). Case had his preschool Thanksgiving program on Tuesday. As always, it was absolutely incredible. I have no idea how the directors and teachers at his school get a hundred small children (ages 18 mo-5 yrs) to perform and sing songs. Each class had their own Thanksgiving-themed costume and each class sang an individual song while the entire preschool student body sang several songs together. Brooks attended this same preschool, so we have been attending their programs for quite some time. I am going to be very heavy-hearted when both boys are in elementary school and we no longer have a tiny performer in these sweet programs.
3). Tuesday afternoon, I spent an obnoxious amount of time talking to insurance agents, getting a copy of the police report and driving to a town 30 minutes away to pick up a rental car. This wreck nor the wreck last year was my fault but nevertheless, we end up spending weeks dealing with rental cars, insurance, and lingering soreness. Again, I am so over wrecks.
4). For Thanksgiving, we drove to my husband’s hometown of Albemarle, NC which is nestled among gorgeous farmland in Central North Carolina. The boys love going down there and riding on the golf cart with the family, looking at animals on nearby farms and assessing what stage the many surrounding crops are in. They have learned a lot on these golf cart rides such as how huge a combine is, what morning glories are and that not all snakes are bad.
5). We are on our way home right now. I’m blogging in the car, working off my phone’s hot spot. This has become one of my favorite times to work. I can get very antsy when traveling but now that I can get some work done while in the car, it’s not so bad. My sister, brother-in-law, and five-month old niece arrive this afternoon, so I am super excited about that. We’ll be hosting Thanksgiving #2 at my house tomorrow. Let the festivities continue!
