Freaked Out!

So as I'm driving home from work on Rt 3 I realize that traffic is so unusually backed up that I'm going to have to get off and take backroads. I've never had to do so at such a point before, so I knew something was up.

As I'm getting off Rt 3 I get a call from my hubby (who I believed to be in a work meeting). "I'm so freaked out right now" he says. "I was driving on Rt 3 and this guy pulled up to my car, started yelling at me, side-swiped me, and then he proceeded to lose control of his car and flipped over in the ditch in the middle of the highway."

Holy crap. I realize that is what was the backup on Rt 3 (though clearly that is the important part).

"The guy was nuts. I didn't know he was even next to me until I realized he was side-swiping me. Then he lost control and just flipped over." he goes on to say. From what he gathered the man was pissed that he didn't let him in while trying to merge onto the highway, and road-raged to infinity and beyond almost instantly.

So the police come, take his statement and get his info, and tell him that they'll send this man's info in the mail. The man was able to get out of his car and was taken to the hospital to be checked out. He was bloody, but was able to walk and otherwise appeared to be fine.

Hubby stayed on the other side of the highway. He was unsure of this man's stability (clearly not very much if he'd do this), so he wanted to keep his distance. Hubby is physically ok, but is completely freaked out.

We're both concerned about this man getting his information, including our address, etc. since he is a nutbag. I'm honestly TOTALLY worried this man will come to our house and harm either hubby, or in some indirect way, little Scooter Magooter, by doing something crazy. You never know how truly crazy someone is, and arm them with our info and I feel completely helpless and defenseless. Thank goodness hubby is ok (physically). He is quite shaken up.

The only damage to our car was:

My new hairdid!

So I've finally tried a completely different hair style and took 8 inches off the back.


I love it!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to all!

July 3rd

Gloucester has this strange tradition of celebrating the 4th of July on the 3rd?!?! With that, I decided to take Thursday, July 3rd off from work and to spend the day with Cameron up in Gloucester visiting family. Daddy had to work, so Cameron and I were flying solo. We had a lovely time. We spent a while up Nana B’s pool swimming and splashing with cousin Bella and Kerri, Nana Lisa, uncle Ricky, Papa Rick, “Titi” Rhonda, and many others.

After Cameron’s nice nap we headed over to Aunty Cindy’s and Uncle Pope’s BBQ. We had a great time and yummy meal there, and Cameron was excited to see Grampy, Nonna, Uncle Bobby, Uncle Shawn, and Vita.

Afterwards, we headed off to watch the parade with Grampy, Nonna and Uncle Bobby. Cousin Bella, Kerri, Tony, Cindy, Pope, and Jen also watched the parade with us. Cameron loved the parade, though it was cut short due to a rainstorm that came through about 15-20 minutes after the parade reached us. This was Cameron’s first time in a year that he missed his bedtime, and boy did he miss it. His current bedtime is 6:30pm, but we didn’t even leave Gloucester until 8:30pm. He passed out in the car halfway home, and went straight to bed when we got in at 9:30pm. He slept through the night (unlike the last time he missed his bedtime a year ago, he was up every hour on the hour that time, and at the time we decided it wasn’t worth missing his bedtime if that was the result) and woke up a little smidge later than he normally does. As a side note: I don’t think Cameron has ever slept in to 7am, him sleeping in until 6:30am is a big treat in our house.

July 4th

On the morning of July 4th we took Cameron to the Franklin Park Zoo. We had such a great time, and Cameron loved every minute of it (ok, well he didn’t love the minutes immediately following having to get off the carousel, but what kid does?). We spent a few solid hours there and were all pooped by the time we got to the car. Cameron passed out in the car before we even hit the highway, and took a nice long nap when we got home. After Cameron’s nap we headed over to Nana and Papa’s house for their holiday BBQ. We hung out there for a bit before crashing at home for the evening.

Remainder of the weekend

The remainder of our long holiday weekend was fairly uneventful. Craig went golfing Saturday morning so I took Cameron to the mall. We both got a few new things before heading home to lounge. Throw a little poker in Saturday evening and out to breakfast Sunday morning and that was our weekend.
