Not such a good day

This is actually Betsy writing a post. Well, today did not start out so well. I drive about 1 hour and fifteen minutes to school 4 days a week (5 days a week last semester). The drive, by the grace of God, has been incident free the entire time until this morning. About 100 yards away from my house I did something stupid. Without rolling my windows down to get the morning dew off I decided the coast was clear and hit the gas. Unfortunately, the coast was not actually clear. I ran smack dab into the trailer a man was hauling behind his truck. I think that I saw the truck and its lights go by, but I do not think the trailer had any lights on it. I was going all of 5 m.p.h., but the truck was likely going about 60 m.p.h. Although no one was injured and I do not think his truck suffered any damage (only his trailer), my little Corolla did not fair so well. I called it my ghetto car, but at least it worked. It had to be towed and we have not found out if it is totaled or can be fixed. I was SOOOOO MAD at myself. Thankfully I have a wonderful husband who did not get mad at me. He came right up the road (didn't take him long since I was so close to home) and just gave me his support. I thank God for a man like Walt!!! Maybe next time I post it will be a happier story. God will teach us something out of this, I am sure of that!

On a brighter note--only 7 days of law school classes left!!!! Then papers, exams, studying for the bar, and taking the Bar Exam and I will be done.

LeNelle told us about your accident yesterday at Mother's for Easter. We missed you both by the way. You realized 2 years ago on Easter is the first time we met. How lucky we are that Walt found a wonderful women to bring into our family. I am glad that you didn't get hurt in the accident. The
CORD LA can be replaced, you can't.
Love you and Walt,
Jan (your Aunt)
