Yin and Yang  
THE BAD
  • I was swerved into on the access road to I-40, consequently got a hole in my tire I could put a fist through
  • Nolan told me I should have let the car hit mine
  • Ethan (who is 350 miles away) got nine staples in his head by hitting his head on the diving board
  • My mom had to take him to the Emergency Room
  • I cried a lot today
  • Nolan was grouchy about insurance and ER visits
  • We had a BLAZING white hot argument/fight thingy
  • I got dive bombed by a  freaking bird in the backyard
  • I have a headache, puffy eyes and an emotional hangover

THE GOOD
  • Nolan called one of the shop guys and my tire was fixed in under 30 minutes
  • I was uninjured
  • I picked up a new hurricane lamp thingy that we won at the silent auction Saturday night
  • I got a list of tentative audition dates for the new season
  • Ethan is still not afraid to do a backflip off the diving board *sigh*
  • Ethan is (for the most part - minus the 9 staples) okay
  • My Mom is a good grandmother and cares for my children.  Tom has unending patience. 
  • AJ had a great time at tennis and golf camp
  • Nolan apologized profusely for being a GTA
  • I weeded the flower beds and they look fantastic
  • There's a nest of baby birds in one of our trees
  • I ate a coffee ice cream come with Heath bits from Marble Slab
So it all balances out, I think.

Sometimes we just have to look at it like this, I think. The good and the bad and hope that we even out. I'm sorry all those bad things happened to you - but I'm glad you were able to see the silver lining... and YAY for baby birds!

*hugs you* I'm glad you weren't hurt and that Ethan is okay.
Carrie Leigh: Meh dead like mecarrie_leigh on June 24th, 2009 02:48 am (UTC)
I'm glad he's okay, too. I really, really YEARNED to be there with him, even thought I know it was handled perfectly.

The baby birds are alright, I guess. The mother and father are PROTECTIVE, though. It was like I was taking my life in my own hands by working in the flower beds! Incoming! Duck and COVER!

...and Aw! Bill and Sookie.

Oh, Carrie.

I know I've said that a lot today, but still...

I'm glad Ethan's good and that he's still a brave little guy, and I'm -of course- really thrilled that you're unscathed. I'd have been very put out if you'd been hurt.

And yay for ice cream! That actually sounds pretty darn good.

I just spent the last two and a half hours of my life shopping for a swim suit for Sarah that wasn't completely whorish. I'm exhausted and more than a little horrified. Who buys their 14-year-old these get ups?

Anyway, I still have to run Aubrey home to Rhonda and take Sarah's stuff to the church to be packed on a trailer tonight, but I should be back in an hour if you'll still be around. If not, I totally understand.

Love you. Sorry about your day.
Carrie Leigh: hugcarrie_leigh on June 24th, 2009 02:59 am (UTC)
Thanks. You were awesome to sit and listen to me vomit up my bad day earlier.

They should have a "church camp swimsuit store." You aren't the only one with that problem.

1) Chicks dig scars.

2) what's a GTA? I assume that the "A" stands for something I'm sitting on right now... But you know what happens when we assume things.

3) Sounds like Barn Swallows. Those suckers are almost as mean as chickens.

4) Ice cream FTW. I am currently out, FTS.
Carrie Leigh: Being vaguecarrie_leigh on June 24th, 2009 03:05 am (UTC)
1) They totally do. Thank God, right? My boys are going to test that theory.

2)'Giant, throbbing' is the first part of that acronymn, my pet name for the hubs sometimes. It's even become a part of our vernacular. "Quit being a GTA..." "I'm sorry for being a GTA..." "Ooooh, that guy's a GTA!

3) They have yellow bellies. I know my FIL has said the name, but for the life of me... I think he said it was called the Yellow-bellied flycatcher. They CARE about those babies. The dogs were unmoved, but I hit the ground.

4) Ice cream was the best part of the day. For sure. :)

I know I said it earlier, but I'm so sorry for all the bad...

but yay for all the good! Good for Nolan apologizing, btw. It helps. :)

and ICE CREAM... if I had my car back I'd totally have brought some home. (Thursday makes it 4 weeks that he's had my car. I'm beginning to really really dislike this mechanic)
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on June 24th, 2009 04:01 am (UTC)
Thanks.

Four weeks? Does he think it's his, now?

Poor Carrie! Glad you and Ethan are ok. *hugs*

Thanks. That really is the most important thing.
dragonsangel68: Hugsdragonsangel68 on June 24th, 2009 04:28 am (UTC)
Thank goodness you're all right! What a horrid day, but at least it did balance. Why is it splitting your head open never deters boys from doing things like backflips off the diving board? *shakes head*
Carrie Leigh: Seriously?carrie_leigh on June 24th, 2009 04:45 am (UTC)
It's one of the mysteries of the universe, I guess.

I'm glad both you and Ethan are okay! *hugs* for your terrible day. :(

Wow, that's quite scary eh? Especially about your little guy. I'd be freaking out if it happened to one of my boys. I'm glad he's okay!

Momma and poppa birdies can be awfully protective can't they? We had a robin's nest on our front porch and for a while I was afraid to go out there because they started chattering like crazy and gave me nasty looks (if a bird indeed CAN) but surprisingly they seemed to know who I was and didn't attack even after their babies hatched. The hubby read in scientific American recently that some birds can actually recognize humans and will accept the ones they see around frequently as non-threatening. Too bad those weren't the kind nesting in your yard!

I'm glad everyone's okay though!
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on June 24th, 2009 10:15 pm (UTC)
I did freak out. It helped that the only reference that he made to it today was to ask to see the picture they took.

Boys.
Embellishedembe11ished on June 24th, 2009 12:10 pm (UTC)
Gosh! That's quite a day! I am glad that everyone survived it relatively unscathed, and that you're still able to look at the bright side. I'm not sure I would be able to do that quite so well myself. I hope that today is better!
Carrie Leigh: Carrie Ooopsy Daisycarrie_leigh on June 24th, 2009 10:16 pm (UTC)
Today is much, much better!

Aw, honey, I hate you were crying. *hugs you* Little boys are tough. You know God was with him. *nods*

As for the attack of that bird! :O I would have been totally freaking out. I don't like things with feathers...too much. *shudders* Kinda like you and the porpoise/dolphin thing. Goodness!

Bless your Momma and Nolan DID apologise. :)

Does GTA stand for Gigantic Terrible Arse? You could have used much worse, so good for you. *g*

HAHAHAHA! Coffee ice cream! Of course! :D

*hugs s'more* I'm glad it is over and your baby chicken has no fears. Bless him. :)

Carrie Leigh: ruby slipperscarrie_leigh on June 24th, 2009 10:19 pm (UTC)
God did protect Ethan. And I spent a good portion of this morning thanking Him in hindsight.

The number of God's creatures that are making on my DO NOT WANT list are ever expanding. I should post about that.

Coffee ice cream's been my favorite since middle school. Yum.

Thanks for the sweet comment. Love you!
