Wednesday Night May 23rd 2007

Eric, his dad, his friend Neil, and I went out to the dragstrip, towing Neil's car on Neil's brand new trailer with Neil's truck.  On the way home, we hit a rough patch of highway and 2 of the tie-downs snapped, car came off the trailer and ended up a half mile down the road, bouncing off each guardrail.  Trailer twisted and smacked the driver's side door.  Sent us sideways into the guardrail, which apparently righted us. (Thank goodness for guardrails) 
When we came to a stop, Eric's dad & Neil got out fairly quickly (from the front seat) I kinda just sat there for a few seconds until Eric pushed his door open and then I followed him out.  He asked if I was okay and I had the dumbest response ever: "Yeah, but there's blood on me"
yeah, it was mine
My arm was pretty cut up and needed 8 stitches.
Eric's back is all bruised.  My bruises are just starting to appear.  We feel like 110 year olds-and not the healthy ones that are on 60 minutes or anything like that.
It takes us 15 minutes just to get out of bed.
Totally sucks, but at least we're alive and sooner or later we'll get better....okay, I'm pretty sure it'll be later....
