Ok so I'm out there making a bad name for all of us women drivers. Sunday night we had some family over for a BBQ. We ran out of butter so I went over to borrow some from my grandparents. I got in my tahoe and opened the garage and backed right into my mother in laws car. My hitch put a big fat hole in her bumper. Pretty sad because my truck beeps at me when Im about to hit something. In my defense I have to say that our drive slopes and the sensor is above the hitch which is responsible for the hole. My last accident was in May about two weeks after I got my new tahoe. I was driving around trying to get Faith to sleep when I ran my front left side into a SMALL irrigation canal. They really need to make front sensors too. The accident before that was 10 years ago when I ran a two way stop sign and hit another car and totaled my truck on the way to a party (I was 17). Then the accident before that was the day after my 16th birthday when I smashed into the car at the pump in front of me at the gas station. Im not due for another accident for the next 10 years. On a more serious note, I felt terrible about hitting Lydia's car and was scared to death to walk back into my house to tell them. Ronnie took the news worse than anyone. Of course we will be fixing the car too.

It's OK Aleia, honestly!!! I liked your blog, you woman driver!!! Like I said Sunday, I'd rather that happen, than to have you or anyone I love in an accident. It's just a material thing. I love you and am so glad your my daughter-in-law. You're more like a daughter to me.

My favorite was you hitting the car at the gas station!:) It was parked right? :):) You remember my huge dent on our van is from crashing into that yellow pole at the ATM machine. I sure hate those things!

I was in a car accident Tuesday night and got an ouchie on my car. It's wierd because usually these things really stress me out, but this time, I'm ok with it. I think it's because the person responsible was insured.
