A text from daughter: "I've been in an accident. Can you come?" Packing by throwing everything in the bag. Off to Baltimore.
Fortunately, she's just got mild whiplash. The car didn't fare so well - it was a t-bone. But it was one more thing in a month of horrible things. She needed her mommy.
On the up side, I lost my piece of crap cell phone while there and had to buy a new one. Down side of that is that all my phone numbers went with it.
