A Wobbleygus

On Thursday I somehow managed to rear end a semi on the freeway and did this to my car. The good news is that I am completely fine, just some very minor whiplash. The airbags didn't deploy - which is odd. I would think that with that kind of impact they should have. I did not do any damage to the semi, in case you were wondering. Forrest came and picked me up and we went home where we had a BBQ with our bible study. We only arrived at our house a few minutes late. The worst part of the accident was Wallis. He was asleep in the back seat and got thrown into the passenger front seat. At first all we noticed was a rug burn right above one of his eyes, but as the weekend progressed we realized he is wobbely. Wallis has always been a bit clumsy - it's part of his charm. But now he can't stand straight and is scared to go downstairs because it causes him to be off balance. We took him to the vet and today he and I get to go to a neurologist. I will keep you posted on him.

The other part of the accident is that Forrest and I have been car shopping all weekend. I seriously think we have test driven 5 or 6 cars. We have narrowed it down to two - the 2007 Toyota Rav4 or the 2008 Ford Escape. Does anyone have a vote? We would love some input.

The End of the Roll

Back in the days when Forrest lived with Nate, he bought this roll of plastic wrap. I believe the original intention was to seran-wrap a car. However, that never happened. It has been around for at least 5 years, and has moved with us 3 times. I am happy to say that the roll is finally empty, and I can move on to much more normal sized rolls of plastic wrap.
