Hunting Season Opened Early...

Yesterday started out as a great day! We spent the day down in Bismarck running errands, such as new tires, a new cell phone for me, a trip to Kohl's, all those fun things.

We even bought a new TV for our new house! What we didn't plan on doing was totaling the Explorer on the way home!

Ah, now I have your attention...yes last night at approximately 8:30 p.m. CST, I was able to check a few boxes off on my life to do list. Things like hit a deer at 70 mph (yes that is the speed limit), have your airbags deploy, change your child on the front seat of a Highway Patrolman's car, wait over an hour for a tow truck and your friend to drive the 60+ miles to pick you and your family up.

The final word is not back from the insurance company but they are planning on it being a total loss. So now we have one more thing to add to our plate. We were informed today to begin looking for a new car...most would be excited about this however I was really not ready to have to do this. Actually I almost want to lay on the floor and throw a complete FIT! Please remember us this week as we are moving into our new house and trying to car shop all with a 4 yr old and a 10 month old.

oh no! I'm so glad no one was hurt though. How terrible. My husband totaled his car (not his fault) the week before Thanksgiving and when I was 8 mos pregnant w/ Melody. It was such a pain in the rear! Good luck car shopping!
