I Keep Missing LOST!!

Due to forces beyond my control, I have missed the last two episodes of LOST! It is very disheartening to this pregnant lady. :(
.
The first episode I missed because children had messed with TV wires. ABC was completely gone. Of course, we only realized this five minutes before LOST began. Hubby worked valiantly to remedy the problem, but to no avail. Wednesday we watched the episode online. Hubby says it is his favorite episode ever. That's because he's a sappy, lovey-dovey kind of guy. ;) He liked the love story between Richard and Isabella. Why is it that most relationships on LOST have tragic endings? The only relationship I can think of that has a happy ending is Rose and Bernard. Even then, Rose has terminal cancer. But at least they're okay on the Island.
.
The second episode I missed--last night's episode--was because I was in the hospital...labor and delivery section.
.
Now before you get ahead of yourself, look at the first paragraph...I am still a pregnant lady.
.
Yesterday evening, Hubby was home early, I had dinner ready early, we finished eating and got the dishes done early. With everything getting done early, I had time to run to the grocery store to buy the final items needed for my labor-hospital bag. What was missing from my bag? Snacks for my coach!!
.
Joe and Rose asked to tag along. I agreed. We are on spring break and my kiddos needed some snacks too. So we jumped into the truck and off we went to Albertson's.
.
We had a blast. We got some healthy snacks, some junky snacks, and a few Gatorade's to make sure Dad would stay hydrated while acting as my coach.
.
We bought our items, walked out to the truck, loaded up, and headed home.
.
As I was sitting at a RED LIGHT, talking to the kids about the special treat I had gotten for Dad (cashews, his favorite!), my truck was hit hard from behind. It was not great.
.
We were thrown forward and then pulled back by the seat belts (thank goodness for seat belts!). Heads and necks were hurt, kids were frightened, and I was shocked. The light was RED!
.
I don't want to get into details because it is long and makes me mad thinking about. The basics are that everyone is alright. Just bumps and soreness. I spent the night in the hospital to ensure that the baby was alright and that the placenta hadn't been damaged. The babe and all things utero are fine. My neck, however, is stiff and sore. Grrr.
.
Good things about the collision:
.
1. The guy who hit us stopped and took responsibility. He got out of his truck to make sure we were okay and tried to help.
.
2. The guy had insurance.
.
3. When the police came, the guy honestly told what happened...He didn't see us or the light due to the blinding Arizona sun. He received a ticket.
.
4. Witnesses stayed to tell what happened.
.
5. Neither my children nor myself received any large injuries.
.
6. We were in the truck. The guy was also driving a truck...a big work truck with a large grill in the front. If he'd hit us in the van, well...it would have been a lot worse. As it is, the truck's back bumper is dented.
.
7. I was far enough behind the stop line at the RED light that the hit only pushed my car into the cross-walk and not into the intersection where cars were going! Also, no one was in the cross-walk.
.
8. The police, ambulance, and firefighters got there quickly. They were kind to me and my children.
.
9. When I got home later, Miss Q ran up gave me a big hug and told me how worried she was about me. And then she said, "I just love you so much. I was scared for you." She LOVES me! She's never said that before. That was a very nice thing.
.
And that is it.
.
I would watch LOST now, however I promised my kids long ago that today was Fair Day. I may have many faults, but keeping promises is not one of them. So, off to the Fair we go.
.
Wish me Luck!

Oh my gosh. I had a fit when I heard what happened. I'm glad you're okay and Mom was ready to get us all in the car and go to Yuma! Holy cow. And I like that "The Blue Family" at the bottom of your blog!

I'm so glad all is well. This latest episode of LOST was great. That means something coming from me. I'm so ticked at that show, but I love Jin!
