Car crash

Totaled the Pilot. I ran a red light while trying to listen to Zach and calm Terran down in the back. It didn't register that the light was red until I saw the Suburban coming into the intersection. I slammed on my brakes but she still hit me.

Turns out, it all was good. Biggest thing, nobody got hurt. I think we got more for our car than we would if we had tried to sell it. It forced us to get a new car, so now we wouldn't have two that are more than a decade old.

Terran had opinions about what car we got as a replacement.

Terran said, this time let's buy a race car. And it will be his. But mom will drive it since he can't but it will be his.

We looked at a white minivan and when we went back to look at a gray one (Zach insisted on the gray), he was insistent that we get the white. So I told him it was a batmobile that Batman dropped off there. It took some work but it convinced him that we got the cool one. Now we are in the minivan stage of life!
