Blessing in disguise

June has been the worst month of my entire life! My fiance and I have been apart for 2 months now. During the month of June I've had heat stroke and totaled my car, on my way to the airport to fly to London! I was super bummed about the car since I need all my extra $$ now for the wedidng. Turns out I'll be using a friend's junker car for the next 10 months. I don't want to buy a new car since I'm won't need one next year in Iraq!!


That being said the money from my insurance company is paying off the rest of the wedding!


Its so nice to be able to get through the last 6 months before the wedding not worried about coming up with the cash!!


May my corolla rest in peace!! And I'm finally home for good to do some serious PW catch-up!

April! OH MY GOODNESS! Are you ok? I just got the chills reading this and looking at the picture! You are so lucky you're ok! So I take it you didn't make it to London?


I'm glad you're looking at the bright side (that your wedding will be paid off). Holy moly chica. I'm so sorry this all happened!

:) I did make it to London!


The state trooper must have thought I was crazy! He comes up to the car to ask if I was ok and I say "I have to get to London!"


He chuckled and said "Don't worry we'll get you there". He also said 3 or 4 times that he couldn't believe I wasn't hurt.


I made it to the airport in time. No major injuries, but I was really sore the next 2 days. Doc says I'll be a-ok, just have to do a few PT sessions to stretch all my muscles out.


All in all it could have been much worse!


London was freakin awesome. Would have been better if I could have moved my neck, but hey, I still made it!


FI gave me an extra long hug when I got home. Does make you a bit more thankful. Of everything.

Wow!  It's amazing that you weren't hurt worse.  But thank goodness!  Then you can look forward to driving a brand new car when you get back from Iraq!

I'm so glad that you came out almost completely uninjured!!!  TWell put...this is truly a blessing in disguise.  I'm so sorry about the car and about the borrowed car for the next 10 months.  At least you have something to drive ;) 


I don't blame your FI for the extra long hug!  I would have too!!!!


Yes...RIP corolla.  It took the brunt of the accident, thus protecting you :)
