On a serious note....

L-R: Kasey, Me and Machel

I am not one to bum everyone out, but my dear friend Machel has had a very life changing weekend. On Saturday, while on a scenic motorcycle ride with her husband, they were in a head on collision. Her wonderful husband, Tim, was killed at the scene. She is fighting for her life at the University of Utah. Her poor body is bruised and broken (in many spots) and she has had a bunch of internal bleeding, but her brain scans have been very positive so far (thankfully).

Machel was my boss when I worked for the county. She has the best attitude and understanding when it comes to people and situations. She was always the one you would go to when you had any sort of problem. I feel very fortunate that I was able to work with her (I learned so much from her) and happy that I still have a relationship with her. She is a very cherished friend and all my thoughts and prayers are going to her and her family. Get well soon, we have a lunch date in November and you better be there! Love ya!

(Sorry to start off the week with that... I promise, that since there has been positive reports on her progress, I will try to be chipper with my other posts.)

I HATE, HATE, HATE motorcycles. And I REALLY hate it that my husband doesn't.
