Good News – I Read 108 Pages Today

on July 12, 2012

The bad news, I was stuck on the bus on the way “home” for an hour and forty five minutes due to a terrible 10-car pile-up on 471. Eight people were sent to the hospital, one by air care. I just hope they’re okay, the news hasn’t said yet but the wreck did close the highway down for four hours.

Being on the bus was interesting for sure because we were just dead stopped watching emergency vehicles pass on the shoulder for quite some time. Then we started seeing tons of cars turning around and driving in the wrong direction on the shoulder, appearing that police officers closer to the wreck were telling them to do this then drive back up the entrance ramp. Eventually there’s enough open space for the bus to turn around but the driver’s idea of turning around involved literally driving backwards up the entrance ramp, y’know until the cop told him to turn around and drive forward. I seriously thought we were going to cause another accident.

Thankfully, I made it to Raniero’s pretty darn close to on time and before the birthday boy! It was a great time. Matt and I even had some completely alone time with our niece while sister in law went to get milk for her. She was playful and happy while she was gone as well. We had the meat-lovers pizza and demolished it between the two of us. It was so delicious and I will for sure be going back.

The other highlight of the day was finally catching some free concerts from the World Choir Games on fountain square. It was super packed so I just found an empty table, sans chair, and stood eating my food. It was great to be able to be outside, eat and listen to beautiful music for an hour. I got to hear some kind of English-speaking children’s choir sing Love Shack, a children’s choir from Hong Kong and a gospel choir from Germany. It was delightful.

My D23 membership 23-month calendar showed up today as well and it’s really cool! Lots of old concept drawings for the Disney movies, most of which look nothing like the finished product. I find that all very interesting. Best part was that my friend at the post office sent a picture of it today and attached a post it note to the box saying him and his wife missed us. 🙂

Tomorrow is finally Friday and I am so excited. We’re going to the Reds vs. Cardinals game, hoping the Reds come back from the All-Star break with a fire under their butts!
