mamaness's Diaryland Diary

the car is gone

Birth story is the entry before this if you missed it. My morning was sooooo crazy. First of all I had a hard time getting Jer up, but he wanted to go to school. Then I could find one sandle & one sneaker, but no matches. I eventually found a match for the sandles. I had to get dressed and take the stupid trash out because my husband forgot. But don't be too mad at him, he is sick w/ what I had and totally miserable, AND he has to work. I mean I had to take care of the kids when I was sick, but at least I could be at home and rest. Anyway so then dad was a little late cause he forgot the carseat. His car smelled like gasoline. It was awful, I thought I was going to be sick. I asked what was wrong because I was in it on Sunday and it was fine. So we're driving down the road and he says it has some kind of like, and it could possibly catch on fire. Wonderful. I prayed that it didn't do that while we were in the car (do you know how much of a pita carseats are to undo, and it would not have been fun in an emergency). So we got Jer to school, along with his blue folder & his box tops for education things that we collected. Then dad brought Kier & I to Krogers, and went to get gas. We finished our shopping, paid & got a kroger card instead of waiting for dad to get back (thank goodness) and waited for him outside. Forever. Ok It felt like forever though. I had SUCH a bad feeling, I knew something had happened but I couldn't do anything to find out, you know? The gas station he goes to is NOT that far from Krogers. So, finally I see my brothers car (don't ask me how I recognized it but I did) with dad in the front seat. Uh oh. We walked over to where they parked and found out that just before he got to the gas station the engine caught on fire. (And some woman stopped to help him and was hit from behind by some man who wasn't watching the road because he just had to see what was going on. grr My dad feels SO bad that she got hit b/c she stopped to help). He was right in front of the Turning Point Middle school and a couple of people came out with fire estinguishers(sp) but they didnt help, the fire department had to come. And I guess he called my brother and got what he could out of the car. He managed to get one of the spare carseats (the car has been towed off so we'll see if he gets the other one. I wish we could get them replaced just cause it would be nice, but he doesn't think the ins will do that for fire). Sooo yeah

My mind just keeps racing. We could have gone with him to get gas instead of going right to Kroger. We could have been in the car on the way to Jer's school. Dad could have been hurt. There are soo many possibilitys you know? But it happened after we got out, and dad is OK, and I am so thankful for all that. But it was so scary. I almost started crying several times on the ride home, but I made myself not because I didn't feel like explaining all that female pregnancy hormone stuff to my brother & dad. I dont even know WHY i was going to cry. Everyones fine. No one was hurt. Sure my parents are carless now, but that can be fixed in time. Anyway i'm going to go um we went to the library & it was fun but marisa didn't make it again this week. I got some books, Kier picked out dragon tales. And yeah.
