Eventful Weekend

Okay... so, the laptop has fizzled... so, sorry no photo updates, but life has been quite eventful!

Let's start Friday. 5:30 AM. I swear that I felt the earthquake aftershocks. I am a light sleeper, and thought that I was going somewhat crazy (or that our house was being moved by a big wind) when I was laying in bed at 5:30 AM and saw the walls quivering. Later that day, I found out that I was promoted to "Mentor" in my department... so, good news right?!?! To continue on with the strange day, Pete called at 4:41 PM with the following phrase that made my heart drop "I was in an accident.". After verifying that he was not injured, it became apparent that 1) the car is (likely) totaled as the airbag was deployed, and 2) it was the other guy's fault. Evidently the other guy turned into oncoming traffic in the left turn lane without looking and hit Pete; the other guy got a ticket; the other guy did not total his car. So, then hockey started that evening--Pete played, but I was without a vehicle.

Saturday it was about 80 degrees, so we cleaned the yard with (brother) Matt's help. It's amazing how much better the yard looks without ~1400 gals. of leaves, twigs, and pine needles! We also decided a few things, 1) the barn is coming down. It is no longer safe to keep up-- the second main beam has cracked. 2) We might just get a fun car next--we have been married 3 years, and need a car to commute to work and back. We might just get a convertible or little sportscar to make the commute fun, and the weekend trips more interesting. But... we shall see...

I love all the comments! Have a great week everybody!

I am very glad that Pete is okay, bummer on the car, but that is why we have insurance, right? I'd go for something fun too, then someday you can be practical if you have to be. Plus those little cars are so much better on gas!
