Owned a Truck (Car Wreck Recovery Week #5)

At the beginning of the week husband was supposed to have a pretty important job interview. Due to flooding at said location they canceled on him. He was all dressed up with no place to go. So what does he do? Take his favorite girl on a dressed up dinner date, of course! I always want to get dressed up to go out, it was funny to see the role reversal this one time.


We decided that we would celebrate my “one month not dead day” as it was just about 1 month since the accident. It was neat to sit there simply having dinner, enjoying each other’s company.


Later that week a friend offered us a great deal on a truck, so now we have a second vehicle and the Buick is “officially” my car. (Though I keep referring to it as the husband’s car).

Husband has been wanting a truck for ages, and treated his poor Buick like one, partially the reason that it is falling apart.

The first thing that he did was go and buy a gun rack for the teeny white truck. Meanwhile, I’ve been brainstorming on ways to girlify the Buick to really feel like it is mine. I purchased one of those air freshener things that you can put in the vents. If I can’t make it pink, I can at least make it smell pink.


I’ve been continuing to heal, with very rarely any pain except in my pelvic bone, and was able to return to jogging with some pretty awesome results!

The weekend also include a fun visit with my former Italy teammate, so excited to see her return to the area for school soon!

I think over the past year I officially forgot to introduce Tortuga Terrace.

  • Cuddled and Adopted a Penguin The weekend before last, I celebrated my birthday up north at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. According to my research its the closest zoo that offers penguin experiences/encounters. (And just $45 for a cheek to beak experience). I’d already lost my heart at one experience with Busch/Seaworld, but I wanted to see the penguins at one of [...]
  • Rescued Penguins For My Birthday I daydream about being a Disney princess…but it isn’t for the princes, the fancy castle, clothes, or even the books (I know *gasp*!) its because I secretly wish that I could whistle (ok, I can’t even whistle in the first place…) and animals would come walk over to me. Sure there are some animals that [...]
  • Ranted about the “Me Before You... Guys, why do we (especially the Christian conservatives) freak out about EVERY new book (but more so when its made into a movie) that comes out with an agenda that doesn’t quite match God’s standards?

About Me

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
