An Update from The Crash

Remember the car that crashed into our house?  For those of you who don't know, yes, you read that right.  A car crashed into the side of our house.  You can read it here.

Well, the repairs are finally done.  It was completed last Monday.

The contractors did a fabulous job.  John Porter of Porter Construction, along with his guys, Pat, Jeff, and Danny... were beyond great.  Most of the work was done from the outside with no inconvenience to us who were living on the inside the entire time since the crash.  They accommodated my husband's work schedule and worked around us and with us when they had to come into our place.  Jeff was so helpful and answered all my questions about everything.  Now, I have a new love for Lowe's and the hardware department of each store we visit.  To say it was an interesting experience to see our place being repaired and parts of it rebuilt would be an understatement.

We are all doing fine.  No more nightmares but we still get a little jumpy when we hear loud noises or hear people speeding outside our window.  It has been slow going for me to allow the girls back outside our patio to play again.  I feel like I should let them go back to life as usual and have their play area back but I am also afraid that "what if" this happens again and this time they are all outside as they usually are even before the accident happened.

Our place is a bad area for accidents.  This one that involved our house was a freak accident.  It's a miracle that no one was injured.  I ask that you please continue to pray for us to continue to overcome our fear of living here and for the safety of our area.  Also, please pray for the driver who crashed into our house.  The last time she visited I mentioned to her that we were having a hard time sleeping, I was having nightmares, and our little girls were refusing to sleep alone or in their beds because they were scared from the crash.  Since that day, she has not returned to visit.  Her husband came by to check on us another time after that and said she has sought out help for herself because she is having a hard time dealing with what she caused to happen.  She feel asleep at the wheel after a long drive home, not realizing how tired she really was.

I'm happy we have our place back and are able to move furniture back to where it was and have our full living space back.
