Well, the day started out well. We actually made it to our first appointment EARLY (that doesn't happen often!!) But it went downhill FAST from there! We were test driving a van and I thought of a nice route that would take us past the apartment Greig and I lived in when Jeffrey was born.
It looks very much the same. So, my old Paychex building was 'on the way' back to the dealership so I slowed down to show Sumana where I used to work. That's when the bottom dropped out in our day. I pulled up behind a big truck at a T-intersection and then heard blaring car horns, heard a crash and then SAW a black convertible whiz up a bank and head up a privacy fence and stop ON its SIDE. I parked the van, grabbed my cell phone, dialed 911 and jumped out of the car in rapid form (recently certified Professional Rescuer in action!).
By the time I crossed the street, others were there helping the victims. They were all conscious and the convertible driver (a 300+ pound man) actually climbed OUT of his car! I took over bystander who had been at the 'other' car. It was an elderly couple (70-80s) and since I didn't notice anything immediate danger (other than being in the middle of a road!) I just talked to them and helped them gather their personal belongings that had flown all over. Thankfully, a doctor was in one of the passing cars, so she took over for me and I was happy to get out of there. We were DONE with our test drive!
I had so much adrenaline in my system that I couldn't remember where we actually needed to go (it has been 18 years!) I turned left, turned around and went back, then turned around and went the way I originally turned. UGH!!! Anyway, we got back late and we were late for everything else the rest of the day!
We checked out van colors for the Sedona (at a different dealership) and by that time, it was too late to visit Giana. Thankfully, we still had time for a Chinese buffet before we picked up Gretchen at the airport. Of course, I forgot about the construction at the airport, so we were late meeting Gretchen. That's the way the day went! I am soooo thankful for safety, though. Only God knows 'why' were perpetually late yesterday . . . but I'm sure He was keeping us safe through all of our 'adventures'. Thanks for putting up with all my rambling!
