It's been a long night

spent at the ER tonite. Let me say first that
everyone is fine and I thank God for his many

Christina and Zoe were involved in a traffic
accident late this afternoon - stopped at an
intersection red light - when they were slammed
by a Dodge Ram truck from behind, which
caused her to run into the car in front of her.
The back glass in her jeep was shattered and
I truly believe the spare tire mounted in the
back softened the blow to the rear end and
kept it from bending in to the back seat. That

and their seat belts. Zoe was tucked in tight
and remained that way.

Zoe was spending the afternoon w/Granny
and Papaw and after meeting Chris after work
we buckled Zoe in and kissed them Goodbye.
We headed to Big Lots when I no sooner walked
in the door and got the call every parent
dreads to hear. I could barely understand her
as she told me she had been hit and I was trying
to find out where she was - which happened to
be right up the road by the Theater. I was sick
to my stomach when I jumped out of the
car and got to the scene. A State Trooper just
happened to be on the road passing by when
he came up on the accident and it didn't take
long for the first responders to arrive.

Chris is going to be sore for a couple days but
they are both fine. I have to mention how
distraught the driver of the truck (WKU student)
was. Chris said right after the impact he ran over
to her and freaked out when he saw Zoe in her
car seat asking if she was OK, etc. He put his head
down and started heaving, he was so choked up.
He was really distraught when he saw the firemen
putting the neck brace on Chris, loading her on
the back board and onto an ambulance. I'm not
sure from where my composure came - but I
remained calm throughout the entire ordeal -
until I got home.......It was at that point it hit me
how fragile our lives are and how the routine of
everyday life can change in a split second...........

Still an icon after

50 years! Since Mattel was
offering these for the same price as
a Barbie in 1959 - $3.00 - they
have been selling out everywhere.
After several calls and waiting -
I finally got my hands on one
today. I still want 2 more......

I was an avid Barbie Doll Collector
before I started scrapbooking
and gave it up to pursue that
obsession. Since then, I have sold
some but have held on to many
more. It's time to scrapbook
the collection........

Check out this site

that is keeping up to date with the latest "WOES" of
Creating Keepsakes. I hope they can get past these
times and get back to being a great magazine. I signed
up for a 2 year subscription last year when they were
offering them at $24.00. I know that was a bargain
basement price, and I didn't want to pass it up.........
