I had a great day with friends and I felt like I really came into my own with my new retirement life. I was gardening and exercising and getting together with friends and having appointments. It all came crashing down the morning of the 18th when I checked my phone. I didn’t sleep with my phone in my bedroom because I didn’t want anything disturbing my sleep. I don’t do that anymore. At 9 am I checked my phone and saw numerous calls from a private number from 457 til 506 and the last call came from an unknown number. As soon as as I saw all those calls from a private number I knew. I knew something bad had happened. When I called back the unknown number and saw it was from City of _______ I Knew. My 20 year old wasn’t home and I knew he had to work the next day. I worried he was arrested or wrecked. I called his close friend who said he wasn’t with him the night before. I asked him to find out where my son was or what had happened. Then I called the police department of the city for the number that was on my phone. At about the time the operator told me that my son had been in a wreck I got a call from his friend with much more detail about the accident. A rollover wreck.

I am so sorry to hear about this. Please know that I am thinking of you and your family and praying for you all.
Hello Alicia! Thank you for your kind words. I was having a particularly bad night when I posted. My son is physically mostly recovered from the accident but one of the guys in the car remains in ICU. It is stressful worrying about his ultimate outcome.
On a lighter note I gave my etsy site it’s independence yesterday. Check it out if you get a chance. It’s at http://www.katyoparty.etsy.com. I would welcome your input on it.
Are you going to CREATE next month in Chicago?
