This weekend I realized three things:
|Yeah, I rocked the side pony,|
hopefully not too long after '88.
2. Our multiple trips to multiple grocery stores translated into two date nights in a row. A run to Roche Bros in Norton Saturday night for emergency diapers (forgot that bag) and a veggie platter for Mel’s baby shower on Sunday. And a 6-pack of Harpoon Summer. Sunday night was the usual grocery run to Hannaford’s in Quincy. Both nights my Mom was with Jill. Hey, I’ll take alone time any way I can get it. Grocery trips, fancy dinners, it doesn’t matter!
3. Tony is amazing in stressful situations and I’m not. Thank God he decided to come to Bristol, RI with me on Sunday for Mel’s baby shower. All we could do was watch as the driver in front of us on Rt. 24 lost control of her car while texting, veered off the road and smashed into a tree. Tony maintained complete composure as he jumped out of the truck and ran to her car to help. I called 9-1-1. That was my contribution. Other motorists pulled over too but Tony had already turned off the car (something he learned in firefighter/rescue training in New Mexico) and pulled her from the wreckage. She passed out for a short amount of time but otherwise seemed unhurt. She was lucky to be alive as her airbag didn’t deploy. I'm so happy Jill was napping through all of this!
After arriving at Mel’s shower a few minutes late, Tony and Jill made the short drive to Colt State Park. Tony told me about their picnic and the nice water views. I asked if he took any pictures with his phone. He said he needed both hands at all times to keep up with our active Jill.
