She was just driving down the road in this car
When this white car tried to pass her and then got hit but the truck who was pulling a trailer
The trailer came off and took out Jessica's back wheel and side of her car
She was luckily not hurt but the car was totaled. The car actually belong to her girlfriend who would need to use the money that she would get for the car to put towards bills. Originally I bought the blue HHR we have for Jessica anyways so I figured she should have it. I had four days of vacation time I could take so I figured if I put that around a weekend it just might be doable! My mom volunteered to come with me when I told her my crazy idea so we did it!
I was thinking we'd leave early in the morning on Wednesday but my mom had some landscaper guy coming to give her a quote on her little side yard project she wants to do. The guy is supposed to come "somewhere from 9am to 11am". Yeah so you know what time he got there right?
As soon as he finally showed up I started packing all my mom's stuff in the car (she wanted to wait until we left to pull the stuff out of the refrigerator and put it in the cooler). So we were finally on the road at about 11:15 or so. Of course we had to stop and get ice and get gas before we were really on the freeway. Delay, delay, delay.
I was so glad when we were finally on I-5. We made it to Kettleman City before we stopped to stretch and have a late lunch early dinner. We were driving down the road when we spotted this Bravo Farms place. Sooo cute! We decided to eat there. We got out of the car and it was like 150 outside so we ate inside, but they had this cute area outside that would be great for kids when the weather is nicer.
I was like this could use a little bit of salt and my mom pulls this out of her purse. She cracks me up!
After lunch we were back on the road. I swear driving through California was the most boring part of the whole trip! I-5 is boring and everything is dead in August. There was a big fire down south and I was a bit worried about what we might run into. We did hit one section that had about an hour of barely crawling traffic but we never did really see what was causing it. The fire did make for a beautiful sunset in the rearview mirror though!
When we were getting ready in the morning there was this guy on his cell phone walking up and down the hall way talking. I could hear every word he was saying and finally yelled it out and then he left lol. Like go pace outside on the phone you jerk wad!
This was the view out the window by the stairs, very pretty! There were a lot of signs to the Grand Canyon but my mom said she didn't have any desire to go there and we didn't really have time anyways.
Mom made sure to check out and get her bill and we were only charged one time so that was good! Onto day two of driving!Pin It
