It has been a crazy, crazy, couple of weeks! First, I was in a jury trial in another county for three days with my boss/attorney. I go with him to trial and keep things moving, organized, ready to submit, that sort of thing. I am also listening to the direct and cross examinations and making notes as to what to point out in an effort to make our client look good and the defendant to look BAD!! I have to be as familiar with the case as the attorney does and it is both mentally and physically exhausting! I just feel brain dead!

THEN Tuesday afternoon, after getting back in town, I get a call from Cameron a/k/a Cammie Pie telling me HE had just had an accident! And to make matters worse, he hit a guy on a motorcycle!! I quite nearly had a heart attack! I was not far from him at all so I get to the scene of the accident really quickly, before the police, fire trucks, paramedics and ambulance!

The man was lying in the street with "pieces" of motorcyle strewn everywhere! I run over and kneel down by him and ask him what hurts and are you alright and what can I do??? He was SO SWEET! He was actually cracking jokes and laughing and I was just floored! Turns out, Cameron did not actually hit him (which is a good thing) he jumped off the motorcycle when he saw that Cameron did not see him. They were both going very slow as Cam was turning left and this guy was coming to a stop on the road Cam was turning onto, and Cameron did not see him at all.

I am telling you I have just been feeling like I am having an out of body experience since this happened. I am reminded of how short life is and how things can change in an instant! I am always very mindful of this, but it just brought it all up to the surface andI have been so emotional!

The man was okay, no broken bones, and for that I am so THANKFUL to God for taking care of him.

He was, however, riding a brand new Harley Davidson that he had had for 2 months! UGH!

AND we thought that Cameron's car only had a flat and was knocked out of line and were not even going to turn in a claim on his car, however, after taking it yesterday to have it "aligned" we get a call telling us the frame is bent, all kinds of damage underneath the car so..........not good!

I just have visions of CANCELLATION of insurance and rates going through the ROOF! I just keep reminding myself that I am so thankful that neither one of them was hurt seriously and for that I am so blessed!

I am a worrier though, don't know why, I wish I wasn't, but I am! I have not slept well at all since it happened and I don't want to let either one of my boys out of my site! I have called and checked on the other guy several times to see how he is and he is good. Sore, but good.

I am sure I will get better as I calm down and destress..........I wish my boys were two again.....

Have a great weekend!

Lou Cinda


  1. OMG, what a mess you've had to contend with! No wonder you're stressed! Hope that you can have a peaceful, worry free weekend.

  2. On my, you have had a crazy couple of weeks! I'm so glad that neither one of them was badly hurt. Take care of yourself. God was watching over them. Everything is in His hands.

  3. Thank goodness the man is ok!! I am a worrier too so I understand the not being able to sleep and the "what ifs". Just try to keep it all in perspective. Even if that insurance does go through the roof, it could have been so much worse.

  4. Oh my goodness Lou. Sweetie Pie I am so sorry that this happened. I noticed last night that you had not posted recently, but you had mentioned earlier that you were working on depositions, so I just figured you were bogged down at work. I had a fleeting thought that perhaps your neighbor had been acting up, but I knew you could handle that one! You must be feeling shaken to the core. Thank goodness it will turn out okay. That out of body feeling is from the psychological shock, and it will pass too. It's a little bit of PTSD that you are experiencing right now. I send you a hug and my very best postive thoughts your way. I am glad that everyone is okay. Please take care of yourself, and if you continue to not sleep, please please go to your Doc and let him know just how you have been feeling. Don't let it get out of hand. This is your "mother" speaking...

  5. I'm a worrier too, so I understand how you feel. We just can't help it!
    I'm glad nobody got hurt and I hope your insurance doesn't go up too much.
    Also, I am here to say that I am so happy that you like the crochet necklace, really happy. Thank you so much for buying from me, I really appreciate it.
    If you want the necklace in a different color than what I have, let me know and I will see if I can find the thread to make it for you.
    Thank you again.
    By the way, I love your blog! I just became a follower. :o)

  6. Oh, there is nothing worse than those kind of calls. I had several of them when mine were teens! the bad part is, when you start getting lulled into a feeling of "everything's ok", you get another one of those calls! Sorry, I may be stressing you even more! Glad things weren't any worse than they were. laurie

  7. yikes!!
    hope you have a peaceful and relaxing weekend!

  8. Awe Lou Cinda, that's horrible news...but good in the sense everyone is still breathing ~ including YOU!
    I was worried as you haven't posted in a while. Now I know you have been sort of..."busy with life" shall we call it?
    Missed you & I hope things get to normal soon. (That tornado seems to be following you girl!)
    everything vintage

  9. Lou Cinda! What a story! It's hard sometimes to concentrate on how things came out okay when our minds keep throwing up the "what ifs! We gotta just thank God for the worst not happening! You take care! God Bless! Lauralu :)

  10. Not a good kind of call. Our youngest had two wrecks, and they tried to cancel his insurance. Our agent found a high risk policy that we got him on. We finally got through it. He's now 27 and paying for his own insurance and hasn't had a wreck since those two.

  11. My Goodness L.C. - you need to go take a Calgon and have some chocolate - PRONTO! Also, be glad you don't live in New Jersey - we have the HIGHEST auto insurance rates in the country - like over $5000 a year! And our property taxes are through the roof too - we pay more than $6000 a year and have less than half an acre. Anyway, I'm sorry to hear about your stress level and just try to keep your chin up!

  12. So glad everyone is OK! I hate the car had more damage than you thought. But is this what I have to look forward to? Boys are 8 and 4. Keep you spirits up...God is in control sister, He is in control.

  13. Scary!! Glad all is ok. GIve your worries to God and have fiath that he will take care. I am praying for you.

  14. thanks so much for your comforting words and your prayers...they mean so much!
