Slip Slidin' Away

I took the kids into town this afternoon to go to Gamestop to pick up some new Nintendo DS games. First of all it was nightmare there because they were having a B2/G1 on all used games. But we found our games and stood in line for 45 minutes! When it was finally our turn they realized that they didn't have one of the games I wanted (the only one Brynne could play). I was so frustrated because I had already stood in line that long. Anyway, I ran and grabbed a game I thought she might be able to play so we could get our free one, and we were out. Geez!

Then we stopped and got crickets for the lizards since we'll be leaving town tomorrow.

On the way home, we were driving at a steady and slow pace. I wasn't accelerating at any rapid speeds and wasn't using my brakes at all. Literally in a second we were in the ditch. Must have hit a sheet of ice .. I don't know. Brynne said, "Oh no, now we can't go home!" Eli said, "Nice shot mommy."

And we were stuck!

The truck behind us stopped and came back to talk to me and said he thought he could pull me out. That angel and his family did exactly that. Dawson said, "Give him some money!" I asked the man if I could pay him something. He just smiled and said, "Merry Christmas!" I started crying. He and his family were so kind. Restored my faith in humanity for a moment.


  1. Nicole,
    I'm sure glad that everyone is ok! It can be a scary experience especially with kids in the car. We finally got out today too. Our streets weren't plowed/salted/sanded yet so that was fun (not!). But, the kids were going crazy!

  2. black ice can be soo scary! I need to go get crickets for the frogs tomorrow so thanks for the reminder!

    glad you, the kids and truck were ok! :)
