Things that go boom, bang, crunch.

I had two things going for me. I’ve never been in a car accident and never had a cavity in my life. While I wish the latter happened today, I got in a car accident. Thankfully, no other cars were involved but it scared the fuck out of me. We had our first big snow here in Maine, well it may not have been that big to Mainers, and the roads were icy and hadn’t been cleared yet.

I went to pick up the hummingbird at preschool an hour and a half early, thinking I could beat the bad weather. When we were coming back home, I was exciting the freeway and started sliding. It all happened so fast but I’m pretty sure I overcorrected and then went slamming into a metal barrier to my right. I wasn’t going very fast but heard a loud crunch.

The hummingbird was in hysterics, which was the worst part for me, and I dreaded looking at the car to see the damage. While there was a cracked headlight, it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought. Yay fo Subaru’s.

Oy, I feel like such a dumbs and think I have 2 1/2 more years of snow, icy roads, and driving here and I’m terrified of getting back behind the wheel. I NEVER liked driving as it is but now I’m even more nervous.

After we got home, I let the hummingbird have some chocolate and pretty soon she was totally fine from it. I so wish I could’ve had a big shot of vodka and a xanax with a chocolate chaser. But I could only have the chocolate. Booo! lol

Driving home after the accident was even more of a nightmare and I think I only went about 10 miles an hour and had a line of cars behind me but oh well. I know having to drive again, in fact very soon is inevitable but I told my husband last night that I’d much rather have my transportation be a horse for the rest of the time we’re here in Maine.

He wasn’t privy to the idea so I’m getting new snow tires instead.

I’d still rather have the horse.

    So very glad you, the little hummingbird and the baby hummingbird were not hurt. But the emotional toll can be high also. Have the hubs take you out to the mall when it is closed, snow on the ground, and let you practice there. Unfortunately, for those of us that have anxiety, even practicing to correct a spin or slide out doesn’t work when it actually is needed!! (speaking from experience)….LOL

    So glad you guys are okay. The car is replaceable, you and your family are not. We just recently moved back to Upstate New York from Louisiana and I am nervous about driving in the snow, especially with my son. You will soon be an expert, but never think you are a good enough driver to brave any kind of bad weather. Even experienced drivers have accidents sometimes.

    A banged up car is easier to fix than a cavity. If it makes you feel any better, I just got in a car accident and can’t blame it on ice and snow. 80 degrees here. So i guess I’m just a shitty driver.
