Unfortunately, I learned more lessons this morning…
1. Don’t hesitate when you are prompted to stop what you’re doing and say your morning prayers, b/c you might forget.
2. Don’t underestimate how easy it is to wreck in slippery, snowy, and icy road conditions. Yep, on the way to school this morning, we hit a pretty slick area, started fish-tailing, started spinning (then I hit the brakes- which I know is a NO-NO in this situation)…and spun across the road into a lamp post and fire hydrant. Fortunately, the Lord protected us all. Adelle started crying, but settled down after a few minutes. Brinly said that it was “FUN” to crash…as did Cade (which is a direct result of too much TV, in my opinion…reality is not there).
3. People in Alpena are incredibly NICE and bend over backwards to help you. FOUR People stopped to see if we needed help! In LV, when I had my flat tire, not 1 car stopped (which I was glad b/c LV has some scary folk). One especially kind couple, the parents of a gal in Brinly’s class, stopped and took Brinly to school, and then came back and took us home. So very kind.
4. Always find someone to put on your child’s emergency contact card…even if you don’t know anyone. The school was hesitant to let this couple pick up Brinly after school, b/c it was just over the phone….I didn’t have anyone to put on it b/c I literally didn’t know anyone…still don’t…except for this couple, now.
Anyway, we made it home and have all the arrangements made to get a rental and have the car fixed. I’m scared to go driving in this weather now…I’ll be driving SUPER slow, and people are going to think I’m crazy. Oh well. I don’t what to go through this again. I’m starting to think I’m a bad driver…too many accidents.
