Ooooh boy..

What a day..good news first or bad news? We'll go with the good news.

The kids & I had a great day! They got to go for a tractor/combine ride and were gone for about 2 1/2 hours. Heavenly for me!! I brought "A Fine Balance" with me and read sooo much! I think I read close to 100 pages!! Im really enjoying this book. After the ride we went to my friend Jane's house (aka..Grandma Jane) and played with the puppy, kittens, chased butterflies, had rootbeer floats and spent at least 3 hours there. We came home tonight and both boys were exhausted and are now sound asleep! Abby took a nice long nap in the combine (grrr..) so she's still wide awake.

Now for the bad news...

Troy called me this morning and told me Zack was in a car accident and was airlifted to Kearney. He underwent surgery and the next 24 hours is criticial to see if he'll loose his leg or not. My heart goes out to the entire family, last night was the High School homecoming game and the team played GREAT winning 55-0. They probably celbrated a little too hard, and obviously to long because apparently Zack said he "fell asleep". Regardless of what happened moments before the accident, the end results was Zack hitting a semi practically head on and his left leg was practically amputated. The local hospital wanted to amputate (sp?) his leg, but they flew him to Kearney and he had surgery today and another surgery scheduled for Monday.

Season Premiere of SNL starts in 5 minutes and Im determinded to get back into watching that show! I use to watch it religiously several years ago, but since kids..well you know the drill...
