next week and this week

craig and i are leaving for vacation tomorrow! we are going to spend a week up in land o' lakes, wisconsin with my mom's side of the family. they are always so much fun, and the northwoods are gorgeous in the summer. we are planning on hiking around waterfalls, kayaking, visiting fort wilderness, and just relaxing with family. it seems like we have been looking forward to this time for a year and it came so fast! i hope that it doesn't go by too quickly!

on another and not so exciting note, i got into a car accident this week with my friend courtney. we were driving woody's car to ikea on wednesday and got so close. there were a lot of cars on the road, but traffic was moving pretty quickly. suddenly the car in front of us was nearly stopped and we couldn't stop in time...so we hit them at about 50 mph and they were barely moving...and they hit the car in front of them. the airbags came out (which was probably one of the scariest things i have ever expereinced), and we were both wearing our seatbelts. there was so much powder from the airbags that we couldn't see anything, and the smell was so overwhelming that i had to crack open the door so that we could see and breathe.

onstar came on and called the police for us, so we just waited...in the middle of the road (there were 6 lanes of traffic and we were in the 3rd one from the right) until the firemen and police got there to push the car over to the shoulder. while court was stearing the car, the wipers kept swishing back and forth like crazy and the horn decided to honk and honk and honk. that part was really funny. it's like the car needed to get some last words in there before it was totally, well, totaled. we are both very lucky that we are fine. i have some huge bruises on my leg from the airbags, and i was a little stiff...but that only lasted for a day. courtney pulled a tendon in her arm from the airbag, and she was a little stiff too. but, it's 3 days later and we're both moving around with no problems at all, so we are so thankful. God really protected us.
