Just A Normal Day...SIKE!

Have you entered my giveaway? You can do so here
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. Around my neck of the woods, we relaxed, ate some good food and exchanged Easter baskets. Good times were had by all. 

For those of you who follow my tweets then you might already know a part of this story. My block was lit up like a Christmas tree Thursday night. Remember the crazy neighbors that I talk about from time to time? If not you can read about those stories here. Well Thursday night, technically Friday morning (3:30am) they had an accident occur at their home. 

I couldn't really sleep that night so I was up reading. All of the sudden I hear this really loud crashing noise, like metal being crunched. I knew something had happened outside so I ran downstairs to look out the windows. I figured with my luck someone had hit my car because I had parked it on the street. 

What do I see? I see an SUV mangled and sitting half way up into my neighbors house. The dude had been driving drunk and crashed his car into their house. Oh that's not all... he then tried to get out of the car and make a run for it. My neighbor at this point comes out of the house and starts screaming at the guy and goes off on foot chasing him. By this time the police, ems and fire department are just starting to roll up to the house. 

Thankfully no one was hurt inside the house. The parents and two children were ok. My neighbor was actually the one to catch the guy. If he hadn't went after him when the drunk started running then they may not have caught him. Just another day in my crazy neighbor saga.

Hope everyone has a fabulous Monday!
