Our Weekend – Good, Bad, and Ugly #blessed

What a fun weekend we had! Our son’s Canadian girlfriend received her second vaccine a couple weeks ago and flew to KY to visit. They hadn’t seen each other since Christmas. Hubby and I were also invited to visit them for the weekend, and we jumped at the chance. You know what big fans we are of escape rooms, and our son booked one for Saturday. After lunch, we went to a new game the facility was featuring based on the classic boardgame Clue. Colonel Mustard, Mr. Green, Ms. Scarlet, etc. – they were all suspects. We had to name the killer, weapon, and room the murder takes place in. We traveled through four rooms – the hall, kitchen, conservatory, and study – to find clues and solve puzzles and finished the game with about thirteen minutes to spare. We all said it was one of the most enjoyable escape rooms we’d done – and we’ve done several. If you have the opportunity to try this one out, you’ll spend an enjoyable and nostalgic hour – or less if you escape sooner.

That was the best part of the weekend. On our way home yesterday, just five minutes from our house, someone ran a red light and T-boned our car. We’re both fine, just bruised and banged up. I was driving, hubby was in the passenger seat. My side air bag deployed, but I was unable to open my car door and had to climb over the console to get out. Some very kind Good Samaritans who witnessed the accident (it was at a large intersection) stayed with us to give their statements to the officers. We feel so fortunate and blessed to walk away from this with minor injuries. We’re pretty sure the car is totaled.

I’m thinking I’ll have a big announcement next Monday, so make sure to drop by. Have a great week!

  1. Happy about the girlfriend and the Clue room (I’m a Clue fan). Sad about the accident. So relieved you and your husband are okay. How scary. You truly were blessed. I hope you’re resting.

    Looking forward to your announcement.

    1. That’s the second time we’ve been in an accident returning from visiting our oldest son. The first time was right on our street when someone ran a stop sign. Thinking about what could have happened, we think it’s a miracle no one was seriously injured.

    1. You’re right about the drivers, Jill. When we were going out of town Friday, there was another accident at the intersection just after where ours occurred. Same thing – a driver running a red light.

    Glad you had such a great time doing the escape room. Even more glad you and hubby both walked away from that accident with only minor injuries (shame about the car, but better the car than either of you)

  3. Oh, Teri, what a terrible end to a wonderful weekend! I’m so thankful you’re all okay. That had to be a scary experience. And thank God for Good Samaritans.

    I’m glad you got to enjoy the escape room. I would LOVE one themed around Clue. I’m a Clue fanatic. 🙂

  4. What a scary ending to your little get-away. Glad y’all are okay other than being shook up!
    The escape room sounds fun. I’ve only been to one before, but to me it was hard to figure out. Still, it was a fun thing to do. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Barbara! We’ve done some escape rooms that had us feeling like idiots. Hubby said he was only good for holding the flashlight at one of them, lol. Don’t give up on them – start with a lower difficulty level to get the hang of it.

    1. Thanks, Sue! You must try an escape room – I really thing it’s something you’d enjoy. Lots of them have some sinister themes – kidnappings, serial killers, mysteries, etc. Kind of up your alley, lol.

    1. Thanks, Misty! You should give them a try. They have different degrees of difficulty and you can learn a lot of the tricks before taking on higher levels. Trust me, we still struggle, but it’s a fun challenge.

    1. We’re hoping it’s totaled, but guess we won’t know until later this week. I’ve been dealing with accident reports and insurance for a big part of the day. Such fun.


    1. Thanks, Joan! Clue was a blast, and I think it’s a game so many people have played. For folks who’ve never tried an escape room, it’s something familiar that would convince them to give it a shot.

  5. The escape room sounds amazing. I’ve only done one and it was SO much fun. So sorry about the accident. You just never know. Glad you weren’t hurt badly. There is always something to be thankful for!

    Oh my gosh, Teri! Thank God you guys were all right. That’s just insane. Other than that, it sounds like you guys had an excellent weekend. Take care and hope you heal up soon. Hugs 💜

  7. OMG, I’m so glad you are okay, Teri! I’ve reached the point where I really don’t enjoy driving anywhere any more, and your experience is one reason why. I’m glad you had a good time with folks you love before this happened, and am sending you all kinds of healing energy and positive thoughts to get you through the recovery process. (Even bumps and bruises take a lot out of us!) Be good to yourselves! 🙂 ❤

    1. Thanks, Marcia! I was driving and we were hit on my side, but it seems like hubby got the worst of the bruises. Mine is more pulled muscles in the neck area and bruising and soreness around the seatbelt area at my shoulder. We’re taking it easy and healing more every day. I’m still hyperalert when I get in the car, but guess that’s to be expected for a while.
