We had a visit from Kayla this weekend. Our whole family had been a little nervous about my test results and she wanted to be here to either celebrate the good news or be here to take in the bad news. Thankfully the news was all good. That made the visit so much better.
We ended up all going out to eat and I celebrated with a Bloody Mary from the Fort in Fort Atkinson.
I love them from there!! I was the happiest girl…good news, family, drinks and supper out!!
From there it was home time and hanging out with Kayla before bed. Hubby caught a nasty cold so he went to bed early.
The next day, Kayla and I were really wishy-washy on plans. We thought to go thrifting…we thought to go to an auction and also thought to make pies. The auction won out and from the auction we decided to visit the Amish and buy the pies. Sometimes a girl has to do what a girl has to do. In the middle of all the shopping, Kayla got a call from her husband Spencer asking when she planned on coming. When she said her plans he reminded her that they had company coming…Kayla had forgot so back to my house we went, got her car loaded and she was on her way home.
Hubby and I started chatting deciding what we were going to do with our days when the home phone rang. I hate our home phone. The only people who call it are telemarketers.

I need you to help me.” She also told me the location.
Well…panic hit me. I ran to the garage-told Hubby then ran back into the house and grabbed my phone. I know that often when people say they are “ok”, they often are hurt….I was worried. Although Hubby is an EMT, I wanted him to have help in case Kayla was hurt so I called Kalissa and Craig and told them to come too.
It was about a four mile drive to where she was. My mind kept racing…my heart too. Was she okay? Was she hurt? She needed me and I wasn’t there.
As we got close, we could see a dead deer on one side of the road and injured deer in the other ditch. It looked like it probably would be a bad accident if two deer were taken out.
We pulled into the yard where Kayla was… [Read more...]
