Totalled???


Last nite, i got home from YW and parked my car in my usual parking space and came in the house... after a long day I just wanted to relax. Went almost immediately to bed. I was in bed when i heard a loud bang outside. This is not uncommon, however... we have a walnut tree and under the tree is a shed with a metal roof. So we hear the walnuts hitting the roof often and i don't even think about the sound anymore. However, this one was a bit louder then usual... I thought, "wow that must have been a big walnut..." Didn't think anything else of it until... Sean went outside and came back in a min later and asked where my car was... "what do you mean, where is my car? i parked it where i always do???" Furiously running through my brain was... OHMYGOSH, did i forget to pay the bill and someone come repo the car? did i leave the keys in the car and someone come steal it????



THEN WE SAW IT....



My car had come out of gear (or did i leave it out of gear???) and rolled 50 feet down the hill into a tree.... (that was the loud walnut falling...)





All in all... not my fault... Sean was sending me text messages and was distracting me from my parking the car correctly!?!?!? or maybe the car wanted to be free...
who really knows what happened here... :)




we are pretty sure it will be deemed total loss, but we should find out in a day or so... for now... you are welcome to join everyone else in laughing at my stupidity...

HOLY COW!!!!!! That is some hill it rolled down. I would totally blame this on my hubby too..."but you were texting me babe" I can't park and text!

Poor car...poor Kristie....poor tree.

I am glad that the chickens were safe...I can just see the car backing right over their coop.

And, I hope you get a better vehhicle out of the loss...you deserve it for having such a good attitude.

How dare you text and park at the same time? Do you think that just because we are friends you have my multitasking driving skills.....obviously not....until I crash in a similar fashion, I am still the behind the wheel while photographing expert! :)

Oh Kristie, I am sorry! That sucks! You were doing something good by going to YW and come home to this? I think my husband would have a heart attack and never let it down. I hope everything turns out. Maybe your next car you should get an automatic so you can't take the key out until it is in park.
Don't you hate it when you think, I wish I would have. . . ? Good luck!

So I guess the whole no cell phones and cars is good idea for you. And I am just curious have you heard of a parking brake? The car looks like it is nice enough it should have one!!!
Really that is such a bummer . . . I hope all turns out well and really you weren't in it so it could have been worse.

My husband would like to know if you are offended by my comment. So are you?
