Mom Van Takes a Hit: Survives

April 6, 2009
Ever have one of those days?

Where you get rear-ended by a TOW TRUCK of all things??
Can someone please define irony?

The thing is, it was minimal damage. My little boy and I were totally NOT hurt, all is well. But the mechanic said the whole bumper will have to be replaced. Grrr. Guess how much ‘the whole bumper’ will cost…? I’m not telling. Go ahead and guess.

Oh it gets better. When I called the Tow Truck company.. they had the obscene audacity to tell me the driver claims I ‘rolled’ backwards into THE GIANT TOW TRUCK for pete’s sake. I was all?? Are you Serious? I was turning right, still rolling forward a bit, checking the oncoming traffic.. anyway.. GRRRR

And then…..

I returned home to this………….

(No I didn’t make this picture Josh Bozarth did)

YES. The dreaded blue screen on my computer.. and a horrifying error message that said, HP is working to reboot your system.. this could take several minutes… you will lose any recently installed software…. {insert scary movie music.}


3 HOURS later…..

That same error screen was flashing and appeared to be still working? I did my best to be patient.

But what I was really thinking was…

When did I last run a backup? And. Don’t bad things always come in threes? What’s next? I refused to leave the house the whole rest of the day. We ate frozen pizza and popcorn for dinner just in case.

Oh. PS. The computer came back {can you tell?} Get this.
It uninstalled MSN messenger????


Thanks for the nice blog redo comments. Wanna hear the best compliment I got?
“Did your friend LeeLou do this for you?”
I was sooooo happy.
Cuz ahem… no she did not!

And did you read some of the comments about what age people are willing to give a child a cell phone..?
