Yesterday, my oldest daughter and I were was getting ready to finish her school project and I realized I needed to run up to Office Depot for a few things. I jump in the car and back out of the driveway...........right into my son's Rodeo! Arghh! Don't worry. Nobody was hurt. His car was parked on the curb. Yeah, I know. Stop laughing!

In my defense, it usually is pulled up in the grass across the street. Not actually on the street. I totally took that for granted and was too busy watching the front end of my Durango. Hubby says I have no defense since the other car was parked. Hmph!!

Over there in that grass.

And in case your wondering, the Durango definitely won the smash up derby. The corner of my bumper is scuffed with paint and there are a few scratches. My son's door, on the other hand, is smashed in pretty good.


Yup! I'm a dork!

Neurotically Yours!

Who is the knuckle head who parked the Rodeo there? Because it is his fault for parking it there.


It's the crazy but hot chick behind the wheel!

Sorry to hear about the crash. Hope everything works out getting them fixed, insurance company is wondering what???? LOL

Found your blog and I have to say it's nice to see another blog mom out there with older kids. I have two teens and sometimes feel like the old mom with old kids on the blogging block.
Keep blogging!

Just be thankful you didn't hit the gas instead of the brake and send the rodeo into the lake!!!
That's what I would have done...gosh, this blogging is so much fun! (pretty good poetry, huh?)

You are so funny. And remember it is never our fault. Someone should have told you the car was there, we have too much on our mind to worry about little things like that!!! Ruth Bennett

I did the exact same thing ot my sister's Honda when leaving to pick up Chinese food. I blamed it on the fact that it was raining and I was hungry.

Yeah it's not your fault, I mean who would see a bright red, full sized SUV parked behind them?

Well, I've done that before. My ex ALWAYS parked beside me. I mean, ALWAYS. I was leaving for work, didn't even NOTICE his truck BESIDE me, and yea, totally backed in to it. Thank God there was hardly any damage.

I read that your 16 year old is still alive. Interesting, because I think today may be my husband's 16 year old's last day! LOL
