Today I am grateful that Mollie, Baylor, and I didn't get in a serious car accident on the way to or from the library this morning. We got a lot of snow today, and the neighborhood roads were pretty slick. Our van couldn't even make it up our tiny hill on the first try; I had to back it up and try to get a sort of running start to get up it. The main roads were pretty clear, though, and I figured we were in the clear for the duration of our little trip.
Unfortunately I was mistaken.
As I pulled into the driveway, I apparently hit an icy patch where the driveway meets the road and slow-motion slid into our trash bin (thankfully empty at this point) which then partially knocked over our mailbox. Mollie was a little upset at the events and just wanted me to make everything right again, Baylor was upset that Mollie was upset, and I was miffed that I made a little extra work for myself. But, overall, I was just so grateful we were all okay. I'll take a wonky mailbox any day over actual injury.
Have a wonderful day!
