2014 crashed into us....literally

It was perfect. The Christmas holidays were filled with fun, great food, family and lots of laughs. Hubby and I took a couple vacay days from work to stay home with the kids and we got to spend a lot of time together. It was fabulous! New Years Eve came and my dad came over to help us celebrate the New Year. We had drinks and I made cookies and we stayed up after midnight ringing in the New Year. 2014 was going to kiss ass!  Then, it happened. The Saturday after New Years Day we had just finished all of our grocery shopping. My BIL (who has been staying with us) called Hubby to say he left his wallet at home and needed him to bring it to him. So Hubby dropped us off and headed out to take him the wallet. About an hour later I get call that scared the shit out of me.
Me: hey bae where you at?
Hubby: baby this girl just hit me!
Me: WHAT?????????????????????????????? ARE YOU SERIOUS??? ARE YOU OKAY?
Hubby: Yes I’m serious. Our car isn’t badly damaged. I’m about to call the police.
I cannot go into any more specifics because we have hired an attorney to help us with all of this but let me just say an accident no matter how serious, is life changing. My poor hubby has to go to physical therapy 3 times a week and has severe neck and back pain. He can’t throw the football around or give the baby horsey rides etc and it completely sucks. He is on light duty at work and cannot sit or stand for a long period of time which is difficult considering his job requires him to sit for most of his shift. On top of all that, the 2yr old is cutting all 4 of his molars at the same time…it has been loads of fun around here lemme tell ya. But we are hanging in there. So that my friends is why I haven’t been writing much.
How was your New Years? Have you ever been in a car accident? Does it still affect you daily?

Body by Victoria almost killed me....

If you know me then you know I have been wearing the same perfume scent for ten years. Due to my severe allergy issues there is only one perfume I can handle wearing on a daily basis and that is Body by Victoria from Victoria's Secret. Not only does it smell super-fab it has a light scent my allergies can tolerate. Here is a picture of it :)

So here I am at work on a Tuesday and I am spraying it up and reveling in the wonderful smell that is protruding from me and glad it is something other than fruit snacks and waffles. My hubby sends me a message saying he will be late picking me up. So I am outside waiting when he assures me he is just down the street.

Now the parking lot of my workplace is known for its wildlife of alligators, snakes and raccoons. So I only went out there when my husband assured me he was down the street. Well then something happened that delayed traffic. And instead of 3 minutes it took him 15 minutes to get to me. I didn't realize in the process I had become a $.99 mosquito buffet. You see Body by Victoria has to be some kind of binaca to the mosquitoes because I noticed I started itching a little. The more I itched the quicker I saw my skin turn red and swell. Then I started assessing myself and realized those suckers (pun-intended) had bit me through my pants. Through. My. Pants.

I got bit more than ten times. Probably like 20. On my legs, feet, arms and face. W.T.F. By the time my husband got there he must have thought I was unstable because all I could get out were curse words followed by me looking for the hand sanitizer to take the sting away.

And that's my story of how Body by Victoria almost killed me lol. Not really but I needed to blame someone so there ya go.

Have you ever had a perfume be responsible for your near-death experience?
