New things

Today I did a few new things.
1. I went to a National Park I’ve never been to, Saugus Iron Works. It was quite fun because I got a personalized tour, saw some frogs and swallows, had a nail made just for me, and almost caught on fire. How great, right?
2. I took a lot of pictures…while that isn’t new, it was of stuff I haven’t taken pictures of before. So that counts.

3. I had a tire blow out on me while going a bit over the speed limit. No one at the tire shop can figure out how I did this because the damage is to the edge of the tire rather than on the tread itself. It came off quite easily for a tire and we had to replace them soon anyways so we are halfway there.

Oh well…tomorrow I have a wedding that I am participating in. One of my fake relatives is getting hitched and it will be a fantastic event. Chocolate, wine, love, and family…you really can’t go wrong!

Ugh

This was totally not what I wanted to come home to yesterday after a trying day at work. Got off of the subway and saw some police cars and activity by our house…and then saw the boy with my camera. Turns out, someone was driving so fast down the opposite side of the street that when they lost control and hit the concrete planter, they had enough force to push it. And push it they did…across 2 lanes of traffic and into our car. After hitting, it bounced back about 4 inches.

Thankfully, the police responded quickly and the firemen up the street came running without hesitation. I love living near them. The bumper is a bit off of the car and there is a dent, but thank god no one was really hurt.
