Recommended Posts

well, I am settled in with a hot cider/caramel drink they make here at the local coffee shop. There's some whipped cream involved as well. Had a decaf at this hour yesterday and had problems sleeping last nite so have to watch the coffee.

I witnessed a horrible accident today. A truck nearly drove INTO the cafe I was sitting in with a friend in the city (its my day off and I am mentoring this lovely guy as he enters his nursing degree program...) Just looked up from my tea as we were chatting and this car gets hit by a semi truck at our intersection and the truck starts coming towards the cafe. I stood up and yelled for everyone to get up...the truck stopped just shy of the door and windows. Everyone was well, but he took out the hydrant, so water everywhere, to our knees, and it is -25 F with the wind here...I stayed with the girl in the car till the medics came, she was fine, the trucker running around yelling about his brakes failing.

I will need wine tonight after the eldests concert. I think I will.

It just makes you think about how quickly things change. a second. Hug em tight tonight friends.

bethtalisman, that must have been awful for you, what a shock! Hope you had the wine you need it.
things like that do make you think about what coudl happen.
my husband is a trucker for a gas company and I just can't think about what vcould happen when he's at work. he's lost a couple of workmates from serious accidents - with what they carry there is only serious accidents - as in truck explodes. It scares the life from me.
But on a lighter note, thaks for the good wishes 123love, I am loking forwards to a regular job coming up and as i said they all seem nice people to work with. Will just have to see about it becoming permenant, but at the moment just happy thinking about work til easter

Bethtalisman,

I hear ya because I've been rear-ended in 2 car-accidents and it really makes one realize how quickly things can change.

 

My choice of beverage for now is mint tea after a long day of doing 9 loads of towels and blankets (from the flood) and baking a batch of toffee bars.

ate the food, drank the wine....oh, yes true, and true.....much better now. thanks for the good thoughts, it always helps you not feel so nutters.....

mmmm. toffee bars. its a good thing I am a lousy baker. a good cook but a lousy baker. oh and a good bartender! I'd a jillion pounds if I were a good baker...cause I am a pretty lousy exerciser as well.

its still so crazy cold, no sign of the end of it for now. Next week we will take the girls to an indoor water park with rides, etc., and its always so nice and warm in there, you feel like you are worlds away for a few days...just a state away in Wisconsin, but still...we can have a fruity drink and pretend....

like we are in Perth, perhaps....
