We are just a family of five...three boys, a mom, a dad, a hamster, and dog. Welcome to our crazy world. Our adventures will make you laugh, cry, and pee in your pants...

I am a bad driver. I have hit every tree in my parents yard, wrecked every car that they have ever owned (except their current car...and that's because I live too far away), I have totaled SO many cars...I can't believe the United States of America hasn't made me surrender my license in ALL states. BUT...I can say that I haven't hit anyone or anything in at least FIVE years (ok, well I did knock off my side view mirror on the side of the garage...but, that's NOT a crash).

TODAY....Joseph crashed on the way home from work this morning. It appears that a BIG ORANGE construction barrel had moved into the far left lane...and Joe turned to miss it, but smacked into a poor PT Cruiser. (and those poor people were driving a rental..they were on vacation)! Anyway, I get to the accident late (because I have to give Isaac meds and start his feeds and give Chris instructions). Joe wouldn't let the ambulance take him to the hospital, he drove the wrecked car home...have I told you what a HARD-HEADED husband that I have??? We did take him to a new doctor that just opened up near our house...and luckily there was no wait. He's got pain meds, anti-inflammatory meds....but, he's pretty sore and swollen.

SO...his motorcycle is taken apart because an oil line broke a few weeks ago and the part just came in today....his car is wrecked...and this is all my fault because I made him sell his Jeep. Because, the motorcycle could have gone around the barrel, the Jeep could have gone OVER the barrel...but, the poor car....just couldn't take dodging bullets like that!

We'll have to wait until Monday to take it to the body shop to see what kind of damage we're talking about. Joe's worried about the frame...he had to turn the steering wheel to the side to make it go straight.

If he wakes up in the morning and can't move...I just don't know what I'll do. I guess I can just push him off the bed and roll him down the hall, down the stairs, and drag him to the van and drop him off at the hospital and make him stay put (that'll be PLAN B!)

other than that...it was a pretty normal day.
the kids are fine.
let's just hope that I don't have to resort to plan B tomorrow.

Poor Kat and poor Joe Joe. I'm sorry you had a bad day. Just send me the three kids and I'll take care of them. Then you can spend the time helping Joe recover! :)

Try to be nice to Chris while Joe is stressing you out. I told Chris if you got on his case to bad for him to call me and I would let you vent to me. :)

Have a better Sunday and I'll call you Monday while the movers are here boxing us up.

Andrea said...

Oh no! Poor Joe! Take good care of him Kathy, he works hard for your little family! Hope today is a better day for everyone.

Kelly said...

Thank goodness everyone is okay! I'm sure the next few days will be rough on Joe to get past the aches and pains. The car can be replaced, but not that hard working hubby of yours! =) Good luck on getting the car fixed and hopefully Joe recovers quickly.

Amber said...

Oh my goodness!!!! how is it that you can make the most tragic story comical??? You need to do some "guest posts" on my blog when we enter the hospital stay! :0)

I'm so glad he doesn't appear to be seriously injured. Does he have a desk job? Perhaps you could just drag him to the desk and prop him there for 8 hours. ;^) Hoping it all gets worked out...in a timely manner. :0)

OMG!! Thank goodness Joe's okay!! Sounds like you have a plan to 'take care of him' if he's still having problems!

Hopefully your weekend shaped up a little better!

Vanessa said...

Oh no...I hope Joe is okay. I really hope you don't have to resort to plan B...OUCH!

Many more prayers coming to the Rollers house.

The Portas said...

Oh, poor Joe!! :( Give him lots of TLC. Car accidents are such an inconvenience, yucky.

HUGS TO YOU, JOE! I hope you are feeling better. xoxoxox

Rachel said...

OMGosh...I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope he is ok! What a scary thing.

I will pray that he recovers quickly from this and that the damage isnt severe to the car.

Hollie said...

I hope Joe's doing better and that you survived your weekend. Make your boys help you! They're big enough to carry things to their dad. I wish I lived closer, I'd bring you dinner and a chocolate cake. :)
Sending prayers your direction.
