I’m Okay

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

I wasn’t going to write about this, I really would just rather forget it ever happened, but I figured I’d let you all know that THIS happened Monday:

I was headed home from grocery shopping in the city. The roads got icy pretty fast. I slid off the highway and slammed into a tree.

After something like this happens you think of all the ways it could have been much worse. I’m so thankful that no one was with me in the van, no one else was around me on the highway, I didn’t go off into one of the many steep ditches on this road, I didn’t flip over (probably due to the tree that stopped me) and of course that I wasn’t hurt.

I did loose 10 of the 24 gallons of milk that were in the back. We really needed that milk….

And now I guess we’re in the market for a new 15 passenger van. I’m hoping for one that isn’t “Kidnapper Van White” but beggars can’t be choosers I suppose.

Yesterday was my birthday.

The Littles gave me some wonderful gifts, a deflated inner tube hat and a curling ribbon hair decoration. And then covered me with “cards”.

Since this week has been pretty busy for us, I took Tuesday “off” and went to the city for some “me time” pretending it was my birthday. But I ended up doing a lot of grocery shopping too so I was really just tired and still “working”….Oh well, anytime I can get out of the house without 3 suitcases of baby stuff and 5 mouths talking or wanting to eat I’m good!

Thursday I had much of the day to myself since my neighbor kindly let the babies come to her house for a while. I got some home improvement projects done, or started at least. There were chocolate cupcakes (another gift from my neighbor) and a delicious glass of wine to end the day, était super!

 

Happy Birthday

Flashback Friday

Friday, March 16th, 2012

It’s time for the South By Southwest Festival back in my home town. Every year during this middle part of March I’m reminded of old days past and that culture unique to Austin Texas. Even up here in Nebraska you’ll probably hear something about it.

I read this in this Sunday’s Omaha World Herald;

  “When you’re in Austin, Texas, surrounded by people, music, bars, bands, Lone Star beer, tattoo parlors, musicians, burrito stands, rock fans, pizza shops and amazingly, even more bands, I’m not sure it gets any better.

We’re talking about the South by Southwest music festival which begins on Wednesday in Austin. SXSW is a magical time when tens of thousands of people converge in the Texas capital city to see thousands of bands perform in hundreds of venues.”

This used to be “my scene”. The music, bars, bands, Lone Star beer, musicians, burrito stands, rock fans, pizza shops. To think about it now is exhausting and well, just so strange! A completely different world from where I live today.
