Totally sad.

Me in March of 2008 with a belly full of Caedmon and keys to my new Mom-mobile.

What happens when someone runs a red light and hits your car going between 50 and 65 miles an hour.

Is it silly to get emotional over a car?  I know it is.  I especially know it is when myself and the three people I love who were riding in the car with me are all okay.  But it's going to take a while.  I'm still processing.  I knew when we left the CR-V in Lemoore, there was a good chance I wouldn't see it again.  I also know it's for the best, but it's still sad.  

It was the first car I bought on my own.  I did it six months pregnant with a deployed husband, and I even managed to haggle for a better price.  And I think part of me feels like it was a little piece of my life in Jacksonville that's gone.  It's sad.  So I thought I would take a minute to say goodbye to a material thing that served it's purpose well.  Thanks for protecting my family, little green CR-V.

I'm glad you are all alright.

You are not silly and I am so sorry about your car...although I am very thankful you are all okay, it is also okay to mourn the loss of a car that served you so well!
