Craig and I were able to go to a Packer game this year. It was Craig’s first game, and my second one. The last time I had been to Lambeau was when I was a little girl… Maybe 12 or so.
Stepping into the stadium took my breath away. The view made it worth the crazy traffic we experienced, despite our efforts to be early. I think Craig was enjoying it too. We were just glad we found our seats and were able to breathe for a bit.
It took a little time to get out of the parking area, but it didn’t take nearly as long as we anticipated. We were lucky. On our way back, we were hungry, so we stopped at a small McDonalds right next to a gas station. Craig ordered enough chicken nuggets to feed both of us for himself, and I got a chicken sandwich (he did need my help, by the way :) ).
After a little bit, we got on the road again. We were driving along when a deer jumped in front of us from out of a ditch. It hit the passenger side where I was and made a loud noise. At first, I didn’t even know what happened. I didn’t know if it was a tire or what… Craig knew right away. I couldn’t believe it, because I didn’t even see it. We were on a highway when it happened, so we pulled over and checked things out. We were beyond blessed to discover we still had a working headlight, but most importantly, we were both absolutely fine. Just a little stunned and freaked out.
Wait… did she just say blessed? They were blessed to have one headlight instead of two?
While it was true, it was unfortunate we hit a deer, it could have been a lot worse than it was. We said our prayers before driving. So why did anything even happen to begin with? Read the rest of this entry »
