The Bad: One of the reasons that I have been missing from the blog world is that I was in a car accident. I was stopped in traffic (not that traffic gets bad around this small town, but there is the requisite 9am, 12 noon, and 5pm slowdown) on my way to work at 9am, when I looked in the rearview mirror and noticed that the car behind me was not slowing down!! So this 80-something year old man ends up plowing into the back of my car:
The Awesome: My little brother called me last Sunday to tell me that his wife's water had broken and she was in labor!! Two weeks early, but (and this was before the car accident) I was so excited!! I got my work shift covered, and drove the 3 hour drive to get to the hospital. I met up with my mom, and some of Sis-In-Law's family, and settled in for the night. At about 3:30 or 4am, my nephew Warren was born (via emergency C-Section because the labor was not progressing the way they'd have liked), and he is by far one of the cutest things I've ever seen in my life:

So now you have it, the good, the bad, and the amazing--all the reasons I've been absent from bloggy-land for awhile....I will let you all know how my car shopping goes, since I have to replace my other one (thanks 80-something year old creeper)....I will let you know how running goes too....I'm scared to do anything until I see the chiropractor tomorrow to get things put back in line. Either way, walking or running, I will be doing the Defend Your Friends 5k on August 18th!!!
I hope to catch up on reading your blogs this week too--depends on how that car-shopping goes!! Miss you all!
