No, I'm not drunk.
Tonight my girlfriend and my stepdaughter were in a traffic accident. It was sort of weird the way it had happened. I had picked her up from work, and
was driving home as she criticized my driving, implying I was driving like a jackass. I quipped back that everyone else was driving like a wild pack
of idiots, and I was determined to get home. I dropped myself off at our place, and my girlfriend hopped in the drivers side and drove off with my 11
year old step daughter to attend a parent teacher interview (I had our 3 year old at home along with my 15 year old step daughter).
Not even 5 minutes later I got a call from the fire department that my girlfriend had been in a collision. Luckily she is ok and the little one
escaped the ordeal without a scratch, but things could have been a lot worse. She is currently in the hospital and has had X-rays on her spine due to
back pain suffered after the collision, as she was T-boned in the middle of an intersection while proceeding straight through a green light (while the
other vehicle ran a red). Her x-rays showed no fractures and she is ok and cleared to come home (taking a taxi as I type this unfortunately, as we
only have 1 vehicle and live in a big city, and our van was totaled).
Long story short, I am extremely grateful for my family. Even if they get on my nerves a lot (and I theirs), I am grateful to have them in my life and
I love them. It could have gone the other way, and I could have lost two people I love dearly tonight. Which brings me to you:
I don't get along with some of you on certain subjects, and I may even offend some of you from time to time. Lord knows I have found myself ticked off
at a few of you on occasion. But despite our differences, I appreciate each of you, for tomorrow you (or I) could be gone.
Appreciate your loved ones every day (and your fellow ATS'ers!)
