life…

Normally we write about news topics, things going on in the world, interesting things, and a bunch of other mixed topics. Not many times do we write about ourselves and our lives, well that is what I am going to do! On Tuesday, my boyfriend was in a house explosion in New Albany, Indiana. I recieved the call right after it happened around 4pm from his boss. The first thing he said was that Patrick had been in a little accident at work, I laughed at him and told him to stop joking with me. I actually said that about four times unitl I realized he was not joking and handed the phone to Patrick. When I talked to him he seemed very out of it and I had no idea what happened. i immediately went into shock not know what to say, how to respons or what to do because I had never been in that situation before. I called the number back and was told by his boss he was sent to Floyd Clark Hospital in Indiana. When I got there around 6, Patrick immediately freaked out and started crying. It was all over the news and trying to get what happened to him was extremely hard. He was working on a gas leak by a house and as they were finishing up and walking away from the hole in the ground the house exploded. Before Patrick could even turn around he was trapped on the ground by a wall from the side of the house. He doesn’t remember much after the explosion, just that it was really loud and that he thought he was going to die. The next thing he knew he was running down the street and fell into someones yard. At the hospital they took a few x-rays and noticed he broke a few bones in his foot, when we went to the specialist this past week he said it was a crushed injury from the wall and that he could possibly have nerve and ligament damage. Luckily after the explosion, he is lucky to walk away with just a few broke bones. He has his fire suit at work when he was working on the gas line so he did not get burned.
Earlier that morning, Patrick was flagging on a nearby road when an older lady came up to him and slowed her car down and yelled out the window, “God will be with you today.” Patrick chuckled at her because he had no idea what she meant and took it as someone could run him over.
Whether you believe in God or not, this is a true story that shows us he didn’t die for a reason! We are so thankful that he and everyone else in the house are alive and did not get seriously injured, now the hard part is dealing with post-tramatic trauma…i don’t even know how to deal with someone going through this?

huber’s orchard, winery & vineyard

Huber’s Farm is a local farm in Starlight, Indiana. It attracks many locals from Indiana as well as Kentucky. Around the Fall it becomes a favorite thing to do. Hubers has so much to offer from farmer markets and wine tastings to a petting zoo for the kids. There is also hay rides that take you to pick pumpkins, apples, peaches, tomatoes, and just about any growing food. There is many different placevs you can eat at such as the Huber’s Restaurant, grills outside, or buffets. I recently went with my family and we had a really good time. We ate at the buffet and shopped in the farmers market for pies, spreads, and other goodies. We also went on the hay ride to the pumpkin patch where we got to pick our own pumpkin.¬†As the day ended we ended with some ice cream and a few tastings of wine. I really would encourage everyone to go, it is a great experience.
