Well, it's never quiet around here, I guess. On Thursday, I was rear-ended trying to turn left into preschool. Both kids in the car and a guy in a big, black, dirty, giant 4x4 truck took off! Hit and Run! His license started with B 13, in case you see him. Everyone is fine. My low emissions SUV is not. It's hard to NOT think, why does this happen to the good people or what kind of person hits a mom and 2 kids and takes off. But, a few comments have put things into perspective. To remind me how lucky we do have it, even if things are (still) not looking up!
My husband was out of town and got back that night, I was on the phone with the insurance lady and he called on my cell phone, I hadn't updated him. She said, "He's not far away is he? Like Iraq."
There were parks and rec people working on the road right as the accident happened, "The kids are okay, right? That's all that matters."
We are fine, cars can be replaced.
