Never a Dull Moment...

This weekend started with a bang, literally!

Jim threw a fit, refusing to eat what the family was having for dinner and decided to go get pizza.  Not even 20 minutes after he left my mom called up the stairs, "Jim's been in an accident, we have to go to the hospital."  Not gonna lie, my immediate reaction was "are you f---ing kidding me?!"  I was livid.

We drove to the hospital, passing the scene of the accident on the way there- the car is bad but he was fine.  The passenger side was hit, thank God I wasn't in the car, I would have been more hurt but the air bags than anything else.  Honestly, every time we're in the car I feel like he is taking my life in his hands, he's aggressive, and outwardly says "well I'm on this side" when I ask about what would happen if we got hit on the passenger side.  To be fair, this was not his fault, and neither was the last accident, but it's still annoying.  It never would have happened if he wasn't being such a little b*tch about something as simple as what we were eating for dinner.  I won't go into details, but he's been on a slippery slop since last year and I truly believe this was the last straw!  (More on that in a later post.)

After going to the hospital and getting to see the therapy dog who was absolutely adorable, we went home, finally and dinner and went to bed.  My mom and I spent most of Saturday and Sunday shopping, oh how I love retail therapy- it really is the best therapy.  We got a huge discount at Kohl's- I'll be writing about that tomorrow- and went for lunch on Saturday.  Sunday was all about breakfast, the dollar store, Walmart, and grocery shopping.  I never realized how many awesome things you could find at such a huge discount at these places.  Seriously!  Stop going to Macy's, Bloomingdale's and Nordstroms!  Start going to these other places, for most things at least.  Anyway, I'll put away my soap box and stop yelling at the masses.

The weekend as a whole was fairly successful because of all the amazing deals we got but it was stressful to say the least and I'm honestly happy to be back at work.  At the very least, now we get to have fun riding around in this rental car...

How was your weekend?  
Hope you're all doing well!
Have you ever been in a car accident?  I've only been in one and I wasn't in the car- I'll write about that another time.

  1. Sounds like a stressful weekend, however kohls is a great place to get deals!

  2. Sorry to hear about the car accident. Glad Jim is okay.

  3. Therapy dog...such a perfect description for our furry friends. I don't know what I'd do without mine.

    1. She was the sweetest little pup! Her owner wheeled her from room to room in the ER so everyone could play with her for a little bit. She definitely brightened everyone's day!

  4. So stressful about the car, but glad to hear everyone is ok!

  5. Receiving bad news is always stressful, particularly if it involves an accident. Thankfully, your husband and the other driver wasn’t badly injured, and they were rushed to the hospital immediately. That being said, how is he doing? I hope he was able to recover soon after.

    1. Hi Sabrina! He recovered just fine from the accident. His big problem is that he has uncontrolled diabetes, high blood pressure, and other issues that caused him to have several strokes in July and October. He's now in rehab learning how to walk again.
