EVERYONE goes shopping the day after Christmas right?
Not me...never. I am usually busy with cleaning the house or I have family staying over for the holidays. And besides, I really really really hate fighting people in the isles and waiting in long check out lines. I don't need to buy anything that bad.
This year everyone left early and I really had no mess to clean so I decided I'd venture out with my cousin Sonya to have a nice and relaxing day of catching those wonderful sales I always hear about but have never seen.
Instead of unbelievable sales, I caught the rear end of a Chevrolet Tahoe with a huge hitch I might add.
What sucks about this is ... this is my first accident that is MY fault. Now I can never have the glory of telling my 20 year old son that I have NEVER hit anyone, that I am the most perfect driver in the world (and he should be like me), and that I ALWAYS drive defensively and keep my eyes on the road. Never again can I say that. I am so sad.
Now, I must admit to the world:
My name is Jodie, I am 38 years old and I have wrongfully hit someone. I no longer have a perfect driving history.
Okay, now that it's done, let me tell you that I hit an ANGEL! Yep, I sure did. I would have never dreamed someone would get out of a vehicle so pretty and smiling and speaking so softly. I asked her if her and her children were okay and she said yes and that SHE was sorry she stopped so suddenly! Her Tahoe didn't have a scratch (as my nose flew under her rear bumper and hooked her hitch). No information was exchanged and no cops were called but I gave her a hug and then Sonya & I were off to shopping again! I don't know how many times I said "Thank You Jesus!"
So that was my Day After Christmas present to myself yesterday...
You see, I am not complaining as it could have been SO much worse. The Angel (whoever she is) was a blessing to me because I didn't get a ticket, nor is it on my record and no one was hurt.
As for the old Dodge, well, this is another blessing why we own a collision center and I guess I'll just have to sweet-talk hubby into fixing this one for me for free! tee hee! He's a pro with this old car as he just fixed the whole front end a couple of months ago. (An accident that was NOT my fault, thank you very much!)
So anyway, blessings were abound this weekend...this is my loot from the "so called" sales.
I don't know about the sales that you found if you went shopping, but here honestly, there were none to speak of. So, I found most of this at my favorite store in whole world and used my Christmas gift card from my son to buy me some goodies...
Thanks Brett, I had some fun shopping but please don't forget that I am still a PERFECT mom... just not in a driving sort of way!)
