Scary Mommy is hosting a new Mr. Linky party today. The rules are simple ~ dig up an old post from when only your 2 RL friends were reading your blog but that didn't matter because you obsessively checked for comments anyway from your humble blog beginnings, grab her button and sign Mr. Linky. Plus, Scary Mommy is giving away a Zoom Photobook Kit and who doesn't love a giveaway!!

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!

Hey stuff happens. I once had our van back hadge up and forgot and I shut the garage door. The door got stuck and I had to grawl under the door to fix it. Opps!

The area across your house is very nice looking. What a sight to look at!

I'm so sorry this happened...has he forgiven you by now?

Five years ago my mother-in-law forgot I was parked behind her. She did $2000 worth of damage to our Tahoe. And she apologized to my husband, but never to me.
