So this was taken on Aug. 2, 2005….over 3 years ago I lost my baby to a rear-end collision.    I was on my way to class, in downtown Dallas.  I was at the exit on 183 and Regal Row.  There was some backup on the exit.  Then the next thing I know, I’m looking up in my rear view mirror and i see this truck getting TOOO close and I braced for impact.   *BOOM*  I got out of the car and just freaked out.  I had my laptop in the trunk near the door and i FLIPPED out and started pulling it out of the car to make sure it was ok, cutting my arm on the glass in the process.   not cutting my arm bad…just scrapes.  and laptop was fine 😀 hahahah  I was able to drive the car home, so I did.  Then I grabbed the camera for insurance purposes.

The car ended up being totalled out.  I got the check from the ins. company and then 2 days later they towed the car away.  I was upstairs taking a nap when i heard the tow truck.  I felt this wave of panic.  I called my friend and he told me “don’t go outside, don’t watch them tow it!! you will cry!!”   I didn’t go downstairs.  But I still cried.  hahaha.

I wish i had some cool artsy picture to post for this meme. 🙂 hahaha.   So it’s time to tag.  only if you guys want to participate 😀

    awwww!!!! btw i totally did the same thing about the laptop…i fell off my bike last year and my laptop was in the basket. the very first thing i did after sitting there stunned for a good 3 minutes, was to get up on my hands and knees, badly scraped and dripping with blood and all, and check to see if my laptop was okay. hahaha…priorities!
