Wanna play??? Let Carrie know! Happy Friday
Sunday, September 21, 2008
So most of you know that I had to go to Montana for my grandfather's funeral a few weeks ago. I am still having a difficult time with all of it. I am still in a funk with blogging.
I promised you all stories because there were plenty but this is one that just plain makes me mad!
This is what happened TWO days after my grandfather passed away....
My brother and Aunt live in Philadelphia and were flying in to Billings together.
My cousin Dawn from Cleveland had arrived earlier in the day and was planning on picking them up from the airport.
She was on her way driving her sister Melissa's car with my Grandmother in the front seat and Melissa's 2 year old daughter in the back.
As she came around the corner she saw headlights coming right at her. She said she screamed and thought she was going to die along with our Grandmother and her niece.
Then bang! Hit almost head on!
This is what she told me the next day.....
First she really thought she had killed everyone in the car. After the impact she realized that they were all OK. She got out dialed 911 and told the operator the driver was obviously drunk.
The 911 operator wanted to know why she thought that
"No sober person drives that way"
Just then the driver, a woman comes up to her asking if everyone was alright. Dawn smells the alcohol from a foot away, tells the operator "Yep she is drunk"
Then the woman had the balls to ask Dawn if she could use her phone to call her boyfriend. WTF?????
Dawn ignored her, called Aunt Eva whose house she was leaving.
Keep in mind this is a day before the funeral and it was 9:30 at night. The ambulance took them all the hospital and they were there until 2:30 am.
My poor cousin was beside herself. She was so upset! And rightfully so. We were all sad about Dzia Dzia and then this! Too much!!!!
So anyway this stupid ass drunk driver who they determined did not even slow down or hit her brakes and was straddling the yellow line got 1 day in jail and a $680 fine. That is it! What is wrong with the laws? SHE WAS DRUNK and choose to get behind the wheel of her car and she gets a little slap on the wrist. She could have killed them.
We are convinced that Dzia Dzia was with them. The car was so mangled that the first responders could hardly believe that there were no serious injuries.
One story down...........

I have been gone almost a month! Where have I been??
Lets start with I went to Montana in late July for my cousin's wedding. When I was there I saw my grandfather for the last time, I knew it was the last time as he was very sick with stage 4 Lymphoma. I left with a VERY heavy heart and a nasty stomach parasite. The parasite took almost a month to get rid of, it was not pretty.
I was in a funk. Sad about my grandfather, missing my Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and my grandparent's and sick of being sick, I had nothing I wanted to say or share.
Then I had to go to Montana again, my sweet, wonderful, awesome grandfather passed away on August 25th. I wanted to fly out found a ticket and was ready to go but there was one thing that was in my way, my children were with my parents and they are 8 hours away.
My mom drove the boys up on the 26th and suggested we drive to Montana together. I hesitated for many reasons that I will not get into but I said "sure, sounds fun?". We left my house in Wisconsin on the 26th for our 17 hour venture. It was a long ass drive!!
I am home now and thinking I might have some things I want to say. I am still in a funk but I think writing will help me get out of it. I look forward to "being back and catching up"
