Don't text and Drive

Awareness Wednesday Button

I decided to join Oprah's "No Phone Zone." I have seen so many heart breaking stories on the news about accidents that could have been avoided if the driver would have just not been talking on their phone or texting. I tell my daughter she will not be talking on her phone when she gets her licence, so why should I be allowed to also. I have been in the car with people who are texting when driving and it makes me very nervous, and can understand why accidents can happen. I have to admit that several years ago I was in a near fatal car accident, I took my eyes off of the road a moment to put a CD in and rolled my car three times, the only reason I am here to tell you about it is my seat belt. Talking on a phone, texting taking your eyes off the road a minute can mean your life.

I am choosing to do this to save my life and the lives of others.

My baby girl is going to Homecoming. The place where they dress up fancy and do their hair all cute and wear cute jewelry and have fun shoes on and dance with BOYS! I am feeling some chest pains, I am hoping it is from the chicken I ate earlier and will go away with a few Rolaids. I will have to post some pictures when she is all gussied up and looking cute.

It will turn out okay, I am sure all mothers go through this when their first child goes on their first dance. She has just grown up way too fast.
