Car accident

First off I want to say that everyone is okay!

And secondly that I am TRULY GRATEFUL to a very loving Heavenly Father who saw that the first statement is true.

What happened:

David was driving along with Javiar (my brother-in-law), Alana, Charlene (my niece), and Salvador (my nephew) when a lady pulled out in front of him and he slammed into her. She came from the left and he didn't see her cause there were some other cars in the left turn lane waiting to turn left onto the road she was coming from. She thought she was at a four-way stop so she just decided to floor it to try and get across traffic (even though the cars turning left where waiting for oncoming traffic to pass). Yeah, not really sure WHAT was going through the girls head. Anyways she ended up getting no where fast and totalling our car in the process.

Most everyone just had a little seat belt burn except David who ended up going to the ER today so they could check out his wrist which they said has a hairline fracture in it (from holding the steering wheel so hard) and he also has a bit of a welt going down his arm from the airbag deploying. David and Javiar both have a little whiplash and Charlene got a little welt above her eye from hitting the back of David's seat. Just a couple of bruises. Alana and Salvador where both fine (thankgoodness!!)

I am sad to have to say goodbye to our Neon that was soooo good to us! We loved our car and are sad to see it be totaled as I am sure the insurance will say that it is.

So RIP wonderful car!! We will miss you!

And the other car:

More pics of our house.

I had some people wanting to see the inside of our finished house so here they are.

Front of house completely finished:


Front living room (and part of kitchen of course):

Back living room and dining (the black area in the bottom of the pic is the kitchen island):

Master bedroom (and closet) to the left of the pic is the master bath:

Alana's room:

Guest room/craft room/David's study area when he starts school:

Laundry room (the door you see on the right leads to the garage):

And there is another bathroom between the two bedrooms (Alana's room and guest room) and there is also a two car garage (I posted a pic and accidentally deleted it). So there you have it, our beautiful home that we should be signing on either Monday or Tuesday.

Oh and by the way does anyone want to buy (or knows someone who might want to buy) the stove that you see in the kitchen picture? It's a brand new Hotpoint glass top ceramic stove. We like gas so we have a gas one in the garage waiting to be put in.

Our house is done!!!

Yup that's right folks it's all finished!!

We had our final walk through yesterday at 4. Now to just get the funding to go through and it'll be ours!! I can't wait to be in my own home again! After living with family for over 9 months (has it really been 9 months!?) it is time for a CHANGE - whoo hoo!!

This was taken a couple of days ago - they still needed to do a couple of things - like add the light to the top of the post and paint the front door red, but this is pretty much the finished product. We will have to add the sprinkler system and grass ourselves.
