I will not be driving for a few days or a week or two. As long as I can get away with it.

Yesterday I was ALMOST in a car accident.  One that would have been bad had I not been paying attention.  I had just left my house to head to the high school to collect the teenager.  I was on a side road that is curvy.  I was going into a curve only to meet an 18 wheeler in some of MY LANE.  My jaw drops to the floor as I see this.  To the right of me a bank, meaning dirt and grass.  I get over just knowing I am going to swipe all the way down the bank.  As the truck continues to pass me it continues to get CLOSER!  OMG!  By this time tears are running down my face.

I'm really not sure how come we didn't hit each other.  No real damage to the minivan either.

So, yesterday I was really sensitive.  Thinking of those stupid "what if's?"

I keep playing it over in my mind.  I am so glad that we were being watched over.

Anyway...

Just take a deep breath. You were able to get off the road Thank God. We have to be causious about Tractor and trailers because now they can take a 8 week course and get their CDLs to drive. My Dad use to drive a truck and can do amazing things backing for miles through just mirrors. But when you get run off the road it is totaly wrong. Because if they can't drive forward you know they can't judge the trailer they are pulling behind.
