Weird Emotional Night.....

Well a few things going on - no cards to post - but have a couple of projects - including Tracy's Christmas Challenge.  I've also finally managed to change the color of my comment link so that you can actually see where it is!  Sorry if you've wanted to leave a comment but couldn't see where it was at!

Today is a special day for me.  21 years ago Eric and I officially started dating.  We don't really do anything to celebrate - but it's a fun kinda anniversary for us.  It's also my dad's birthday.  My dad would have been 65 today but passed away almost 11 years ago.  So this day has always been a bit of a weird emotional day - missing my dad - and celebrating us being together.

But what made it even more of an emotional day - my sister who is 6 months pregnant and 3 year old niece were in a car accident tonight.  They're both fine - just really shaken up.  She called just after 9:00 to see if I could come and get them as her hubby was at a movie.  She was very shaken up when she called - so the police officer on sight had to come on the phone to let me know where they were and to reassure me that they were fine.  Still didn't do much for my nerves - so had to get hubby to drive as I bit shakey.  My sister had rear-ended the car in front of her due to a chain reaction of a car two in front of her slamming on the breaks.  There was quite a bit of damage to her car - leaking antifreeze all over the road - and a very crumpled hood - but no real damage to the car she hit.  And to add to the accident - the girl she hit is also 6 months pregnant - but she was also fine.  

When we got to where they were - my niece came up to me and said "my car has a boo boo - it ran into another car".  Which melted my heart and made me feel way better!

So it's now just after midnight and I think I've calmed down enough that I'm off to bed to try and get a decent night sleep.

Thanks for stopping by!
