Arrive home with new car; watch engine light come on.
Week 1: Spend close to $1,000 on repairs and new tires.

Thank God that no one was hurt.
Wait for the police and tow truck; fill out reports; deal with insurance.
Get an awesome raise at work for being such a wonderful employee.
Week 4: Shop with Dad for another used car.
Find a newer car with fewer miles and fewer gadgets.
Hope that the title for your totaled car comes in soon so you can sell it to the junk yard.
Tell your mom that if she blogs about this,
that she better mention that she totaled her mom’s car when she was his age.
I'm pretty sure you already apologized for that. There's nothing scarier that getting that call from a loved one. I knew when the phone rang that day that something was wrong. We're just happy everyone is OK. James will be telling his grandchildren about this someday.
