yay Joy I love my BIA

DH and DS just had an accident, I have been in the emergency room all evening with ds, they are both fine just very shook up. Poor Jake missed his last playoff game and didn't even get a chance to say goodbye to his team mates.

I can relate to car accidents! They might hurt more in the morning. If you are okay with homeopathic medicine, you can buy something called "Rescue Remedy" and give it to them. It helps the body back into balance.

I am so glad they are okay! Will insurance be easy to deal with?

thanks Yoorah, thanks Joy.
Neeru we certainly are not going through nearly what you and your family went through. Josh is in a major funk now. this is his 2nd car crash in 3 weeks (neither were his fault). And I am sure it scared him that Jake was sitting beside him.

I am ok now Scrappy, Last night in the hospital was nerve wracking though.

I think the insurance companies are going to have fun fighting this one out.
Josh was trying to turn left out into a busy street (one lane each direction). A man stopped to let him go, when it was clear on the other side of the street Josh pulled out, in the meantime some woman must have gotten impatient behind the man and pulled up in the middle of the street (just made her own middle lane) and came around nice man driver while Josh was making his turn. She apparently was going pretty fast also. The cop at the scene (yes the same one that was at the 1st crash a few weeks ago!) made Josh tell him twice because he couldn't believe she just strattled the center line. Nice man stayed to be a witness.
We will see how the insurance plays out. I am hoping they declare totalled as I think there was some frame damage and the car will never be the same.

Ladies, I have already let Heather and Manda know, but I am not going to be able to make it. I was gone two weekends in May and we will be going to MT this month, so I just can't do it. I hope that you all have a wonderful time!

Su, glad you are feeling better and the boys are all right. I do hope the car is a write off after 2 accidents.... ! I hope buying a new car will be fun.

Now, I am glad nice man stayed to tell the story! You are right, I wouldn't want to be the insurance company trying to figure this out!!

When I hear someone has been in an accident, I guess I tend to over-react. Sorry - I was just so scared for you and the boys.

I thank you for your concern. Frankly the call was the scariest, you know that split second between we've been in an accident - and - we're both ok.
Amazing how many scenerios can go through your head in that nanosecond.
Waiting to hear how the car is. Kinda liked this car.

Sorry you can't go Sarah, I had to back out too. Just too many expenses this year to justify the weekend
I will be sad the week before when the chatter is all the getting ready. I had so much fun last year, maybe I should start saving pennies for next year if we can pull it off 3 in a row.

Su - so sorry about the accident. Thank goodness they are okay, and it sounds like insurance co. will have their hands full. I was so scared when dad had his cycle accident this spring, at first nobody really knew what happened or how dad was. The waiting was just terrible. {{{HUGS}}}

Hey hos! Just checking in for a sec before I start my errands for the day.

First day of summer vacation, and I'm already wishing that school was back in session. Summer is never a 'vacation' for us. Just six times as much stuff to do and the need to pay a sitter three times as often to get it all done.

Did a couple of pages of reading, and gave up on catching up.

Su, I'm relieved to hear that your husband and son aren't hurt. You're absolutely right - that hair's breadth between the word 'accident' and someone saying 'everyon'e okay' is the worst.
I'm sure that those poor fellas are felling pretty sore today, but better than than something more serious. *hug*

Ladies, I'm giving y'all a JIC heads up now... there may be no midnight run to Ohio for me.
As I've said before, my office does provides staffing for a huge event every July - The Taste of Grand Rapids - and it's always the third or last weekend in July. Since Chris's Local isn't hogging the park for that last weekend, Clear Channel Radio secured it.

I thought that I had it all sewn up, but it seems that I will have to file an appeal with my board of directors. My contract required 60 hours of volunteer work per FY (because that was my work contract hours per pay period).. well, last August, my hours went up to 80, and apparently, so did my volunteer hours, but it was AFTER I signed the contract.
So, unless my board is sympathetic, I may have to catch up that last 20 hours somewhere, and my boss has the right to designate where they are dispersed. Although the FY ends in June 30, my contract wasn't signed until August 1, so she can technically screw me into putting those hours in at Taste of GR... and she intends to, just as she tries to do every year (even though I work 10 hours on Friday ever year, I've already counted those hours as part of my 60, and that's not enough for her)

We have an event next Saturday that I will now be working for free, to lessen the blow by five hours, but my bank account can't afford a bigger hit than that in a pay period.
So... well, wish me luck and hope that when the board meets at 6:30 on Monday, they're nice to me!!!

AW Roberta, I'm sorry. That sounds like "the short end of the stick". I didn't know you were "required" to do volunteer work, let alone 60-80 hours work (I thought that's why they call it volunteer work??? ) I hope the board is in a *HO* mood Monday evening for you

I have to sign an contract every time they up my pay, increase my hours... non-profits are often subject to their own sub-rules, so long as it falls within the confines of Roberts Rules of Order or Sarbanes - Oxley.

Everyone who works for my office and isn't under subcontract is required to put in a pay period's worth of 'volunteer' hours for events within the duration of each Fiscal Year.
Our school districts have similar requirements - teachers have to attend X number of events per their contracts, as do many other positions within our community. The local government is really hip on grassroots level organizing, so they feel the need to police it to encorage it, and it has carried over quite a bit.
And since the city is the fiduciary on our funds... well, there we are.

It's not all bad, and a lot of mine get sucked up by shovelling in the the winter for our seniors, but my boss is a Nazi about the July event.... it's a huge chunk of $$ for us, and we need over 4,000 hours of man time to pull it off.
She calls in everyone and darn near bullies them into coming. Her kids, neighbors, their spouses, the families of our board members... two days of crazy long hours in the heat.
It'd be a lot of fun, if I didn't have to help plan it. By the time that the event happens, I'm so sick of it that I don't want to come within sight of the zoo and do my best to not be available after I leave on Fridays.

I'm hoping that we'll have another garage to paint or some lawn care to do for a senior between now and July... that way, even if the board doesn't support my appeal, I'll be able to say "neener, neener, neener, I've got my hours!"

Hugs for you all...

Sorry Scrappy hubby and Addison are out of town this weekend. For rainy days try bowling, they have bumper guards and ramps for Annabella.

Wii bounce on Maynard and Monkey Joes near Crossroads is an indoor bounce house place that gets all the energy out. MJoes has more for Miss A and internet and nice recliners for you.

Also Blue Ridge is the cheapy movie place $1.50 all shows. Plus Regal will be starting their free kid movies probably next week.
