Anit-Bullying Meeting

As I was growing up (and sometimes as an adult), I have been the center of bullying.  Many of us have been bullied at one time or another.  Wichita County is fighting back for the bullied children.  An anti-bullying meeting will be held in the east computer lab at the WCJ/SHS on Monday, March 25th, at 7:00 p.m.  The public including kids are encouraged to attend.  Please come out and see what it takes to rid our community of bullying  We can do it in a very peaceful way!  Our children will appreciate it!!!

Our Gratitude

Today has been a blur for the Blaus.  The morning started out fine.  Today was the farm congignment sale here.  At approximately 10:00, Stan, Abigayle and I headed to the community building with our pie, case of pop and bag of potato chips for the hungry public.  We had just pulled out of our front driveway, when Leighlyn called me.  I assumed that she was calling to see if we were on our way.  We were to meet her at the sale.  As soon as I answered, Leighlyn told me not to worry because she was okay.  I immediately felt a slight increase in my blood pressure.  LOL!  When someone begins a conversation like that, you know something is very wrong.  She went on to tell me that she had been in a car wreck.  OH, MY GOODNESS!!!  I was suddenly wide awake and horrified as soon as I learned that the wreck was not in the city limits of Leoti.  (Leighlyn has always been told that whenever she was riding around with friends, anything past the city limits, were off limits.) 

Come to find out the driver of the S U V had taken them to the frontage road between the City shop and the Seaboard mill.  Major snowdrifts, patches of ice and mud were the name of the game there.  At some point in their journey, the vehicle flew up in the air.  Originally, it was heading to the east but after it leaped into the air, it landed facing to the west before it rolled over. 

Once it came to a stop, the driver's side of the vehicle was lying on the ground.  The passenger doors were impossible to get open.  The girls were terrified.  They didn't know how they could get out  One of the girls realized that the only thing they could do was escape through the sun roof.  Two were able to get out but Leighlyn was hanging from her seatbelt.  She finally decided to kick her feet against the steering wheel over and over.  This eventually broke the seatbelt and she was free to go through the sun roof also.

Our Heavenly Father protected these three precious children for us.  Thank You, Lord!!!!!!!  All three of these girls are okay physically but very shaken.

The police who responded explained to us that their seatbelts saved their young lives. 

I want to thank our family and friends for standing up and supporting us through this traumatic point in our lives.  We couldn't have done it without you!!!

Tonight is going to be a tough one.  Right now, I just feel like I am going through the motions.  Tonight is when it is going to actually hit me...

Just a Reminder About Medications...

Most of us already know this.  On a social network this morning, a person mentioned having a certain health issue.  One of her friends recomended that she take one kind of prescription drug with another drug.  PLEASE DON'T DO THIS unless you have consulted with your medical doctor or pharmacist FIRST.  Some mixtures of drugs can not only be nasty but they can also KILL the patient taking them!  There is a reason why doctors and pharmacists go to school so long.

My Blog

Many of you have been asking why I have not been writing on my blog lately  The answer is that I've been very busy lately. 

1.  Stan and I started more kitchen renovations on our new home a short while ago.

2.  I've been doing some painting on Abigayle's bedroom furniture.

3.  I've begun writing a book.  (Actually two books.)

I do plan on blogging again as soon as things slow down a bit so please don't give up on me!  LOL!!!
