How're we all doing?
I've been reading along but I don't remember the last time I posted, so just wanted to say Hi!
Renae, I was
at your poor hubby. I can imagine why you were a little
: though. Once, my dh got strep throat when katie was only 2 weeks old. I was sooooo mad at him, as if he could help it. I'll be thinking of him tomorrow, getting the V on V day.
Claudia! How exciting! A HUGE congratulations to you. Marek's gonna be a big bro! I hope you are finding time to rest in between chasing after a toddler, and hope you are feeling OK. This pregnancy stuff sure does seem contagious.
Els, so now I'm all mentally planning a trip to Mexico. I can use the limited Spanish I learned from three years of Spanish class in high school. Although I suck at conjugating the verbs. Hablamos! Vamanos!
Renae, did you get much snow yesterday? We spent te weekend in Portland, and left about an hour and a half after the snow started. They got about a foot there, but here where I live, only an hour or so away, we got maybe two inches. Anyway, on the way home, I had the scare of a lifetime. Dh and I drove down separately, so he was on the road two cars in front of me. A car then merged onto the highway and almost sideswiped the car right behind dh, well, the driver realized what he was doing at the last second, and yanked the steering wheel to the right, but totally lost control of his car due to the thin layer of snow. I had gotten in the passing lane to allow him to merge, so I was in the passing lane as he was trying to correct. He was all over the road, he just kept oversteering, and I slowed down to allow him to get a grip on the road, but then he came sailing right in front of my bumper. I had been riding my brake, but then slammed on it, because I was about to T-bone him, and my ABS were grinding so loud. Finally, when he was about three feet in front of my bumper, something happened, and he started over into the other lane. I thought about swerving to avoid him, but knew that if I did, I'd start spinning out, too, because of the road condtions, and I didn't have time to check my mirrors, so I didn't know what other cars were aroudn me. It was so surreal. At the time it felt like time was moving so slowly, but it all happened in the blink of an eye. I was so scared because the girls were in the car with me. I knew that we'd be OK, because we were only travelling about 40mph, but I could have killed the other driver, because I drive and SUV (Shh, don't tell the vegan nuns) and I sit higher than the car. Thinking about i still shakes me up, but somehow, we all made it through OK.
