Car Accident

Unfortunately, DH, the babies, and uncle J were in a car crash on Friday night in our Matrix.

They were stopped at a red light, and the man hit them full speed from behind at 50 mph. DH then hit the car in front of him as well. They had to shut the entire road down.

I had gone to see SATC in a rare mom's night out moment, and so I felt especially upset and guilty that I wasn't there to help, or do something. Anything.

Sumner had a laceration on his chin. Immediately following the accident the boys were hysterical, but seem OK. We're keeping an eye on them. Sumner panicked last night when we put him in the carseat.

We think the car is totalled. This is the car with the new engine too. I am so upset I feel sick thinking about it! The man only had state minimum coverage...nothing even close to being able to pay for the repairs.

We'll need all new carseats, we're not sure if the stroller is useable...and we have to wait till tomorrow to even get a rental or talk to anyone from our insurance agency.

The whole thing is frustrating and miserable. Thankfully, though, they are all OK. That is the important part.

I'll update more tomorrow with more info. To top it off, I broke my pinky toe on Friday night, and last weekend while working in the yard, I got a HORRIBLE case of poison ivy.

I'm so sorry to hear this, It is really my worst nightmare, but luckily no one was hurt any worse. I hope the insurance works out somehow. Just another headache right?
