Squashed Bug

It is one of those phone calls we all dread to get.  "(sobbing sigh) Mom, I've been in an accident..."  This was from Kate yesterday.  On her commute home she rear ended a car, and (details are still fuzzy given the emotional state of the person on the other end of the phone -- you choose which end.) was hit by another car.  Fortunately, it was when the freeway is pretty much a parking lot, and it was only at 30 mph, not 75 mph!

The little bug is "more round" now, and waiting at the mechanic's garage across from the house for the bad news. But the good news is that nobody was injured.  I suspect a few trips to the chiropractor will be in order.  She received a citation, and learned first hand what happens when you don't have an up-to-date insurance card.  It needed to be replaced the day before!

That moves Meghan and my drive south up a few days.  Because this is a long weekend for Canada (Civic Holiday because they simply don't have enough holidays!!!) we'll wait until early, early tomorrow morning to, hopefully, avoid the traffic jam at the border.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear this! Is there anything I can do at this point to help Kate?
