On Tuesday we headed to BabiesRUs to try out other options. We tried EVERY seat in the store. We couldn't see any seats that would fit 2 in our backseat. We headed home discouraged and frustrated. After talking about it for a while, we considered purchasing a new car.
Wednesday we headed to Carmax to try out the car seat in different vehicles. We found a couple vans that we liked and returned home. After talking about our needs and money we started thinking about a different car. Bob and Erica came over while the kids were sleeping so that we could go back up there and look at a larger car. After looking over a Taurus and taking it out for a dirve, we decided to see what the financing would look like. We had no idea that we would be driving our new car home that night. Bob and Erica were expecting us home around 9 and we had to call them because we didn't end up getting out of there till 11. I didn't make it to bed till 12:30 and was back up at 5:30 am.
Friday Bill and I decided to meet up at our favorite pizza place for dinner. On our way there, I was talking to Bill on the phone and heard a loud sound on the other end of the phone. Instantly I felt sick. Bill confirmed my worst thought, he was just hit. After he got the car pulled off 85 and called 911, he called me back to let me know he was ok. He was stopped because of the traffic and the person behind him didn't stop.
My poor Sunfire. It was rear ended by a college student, backed into by a school bus and now rear ended. WOW. Bill and I counted that he has been in a rear ended accident 4 times.
Now for the good news. Since we have a larger car, we will be leaving bright and early on Saturday morning and heading to Michigan. We will be there for about a week. :)
What an event filled week.
