Well I am so glad u were able to go do that Selma.  And in case I don't talk to u before. (I am sure I will u don't stay away long). Hope ur DD has a great day and u are able to enjoy it



Today a tornado went through or town.   It went right across the street from our house and tore up trees and stop signs.  We were lucky and were not home at the time. (we were wasting time driving put in the country enjoying the warm fall day).  All the damage we got was a broken window and the blinds in that room were blown around and of course our yard is littered with debri.    How crazy.   Now I know why my head hurt so darn bad.  Lol. Weather is almost predictable with chiari.  

On a side note. It didn't look like any houses were effected. The roads and some cars but all the really bad places were empty buisness and parking lots. One porch got a tree but the house seemed spared. Have to assess better when power comes back tomorrow.  No street lights

Went on a nice little stroll with my dog this morning, it is so nice it is starting to cool down that, to 105 that is. It is so nice to be able to get outside for a little while before overheating. Selma so glad to her you were able to get so much done, and good luck with the flowers. Don't forget to ask for help if you need it.
Lu so glad there was not a whole lot of damage, I don't live in an area where we have any sort of natural disasters but I am sure that must be scary to see some of hat happens.

Overall it's been an "ok" couple of days. Odd things like dropping an entire bowl of spaghetti in my daughter's dance bag and then 5 minutes later dropping an entire bottle of coffee mate on the floor, walking into walls, and such. WEIRD.
Now just dealing with the swarm of butterflies that seem to have taken over my stomach in anticipation of meeting the new NL tomorrow...
Blank
1179332_tn?1297482590
Selma...well enjoy your creativity and try to do things that keep you off your feet!! I think it is great that you are doing this and keeping your hobbies alive :)

Steph- I'm with you...I usually spend an extra 10 minutes each morning cleaning up all the things off the floor that were supposed to land in my kids lunchboxes. Then, of course, the memory thing where I mix up their lunches and then I hear the complaining when they get home... To that I respond..you could make it yourself you know!! It's amazing how the complaining stops. My family is used to my "issues" now (as my 12 yr old son calls them- not sure if I like the description!)

For myself, I have a playdate at the swimming pool, caramel apples to make and then the dreaded bottle drive on Sunday!! I'm sure I will be very tired...but I am so happy just to be able to maintain my life again :)

Take care everyone and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Everyone is gone now...just me and the two cats.if I leave the heat off maybe they'll get cold and want to come cuddle.  They seem to know I'm sick and are keeping their distance! Either that or my sleep has been too restless for them to get their sleep!  Cough medicine can make you very happy if you get confused and take a dose a little earlier than you should....: )

Avatar_m_tn

Not sure what belongs in Friday Fribbles, but it seems like anything!
I just had to chime in on the Christmas tree discussion! I moved last weekend.. and I asked the boyfriend to haul the tree out for me.  When we came back to the room to get more stuff... right where the tree was sitting.. sat a snake!!! (in my Finished basement!) I am deathly afraid of snakes! I learned that even with chiari.. i can still scream and run like he**!!!  Soo.. now its time to buy a new tree cuz a snake touched the old one lol  And i think I mite put it up this weekend cuz i love sitting at nights with only the xmas lights on in the living room. So pretty and relaxing!! Definitely my favorite time of year!

620923_tn?1405964489
Ray...wish I had a chimney to clean out, I would love to have a fire , and  mantel to hang stockings...sigh...not so much the cleaning part tho...lmao

Lovely...Friday fribbles r just that...this or that or nething....lol....I choose Christmas trees to see what everyone else does.....
I can not imagine a snake inside, or outside for that matter....yuck....
Blank
620923_tn?1405964489
well I got my Christmas cards done...I have one I am waiting on a new address...does neone else send out cards....
I told my DH he has to get the right # of stamps this yr tho...last yr he did not get nuff so some cards were never sent even tho I wrote them....very scrooge like..... : (
Blank
997898_tn?1303738464
so we all know my plate has come loose.....anyone want to venture a guess as to where the screw might be?  gives new meaning to having a screw loose, huh?!  lol!
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
I send Christmas Cards or at least Anne-Marie dose lol, she is a big Christmas fan and gets caught up in the atmosphere much more so than I do.....

lol having a screw loose now that dose explain a lot. You could use a Metal Detector as a last resort.
Makes you wonder, how could something so serious can be allowed to happen in this day and age?
Blank
997898_tn?1303738464
lol....something i've been wondering myself, ray!  still waiting on an explanation on that one...
hmmmm...metal detector.  maybe i'll go rent one today!  lmao!
Blank
620923_tn?1405964489
Lizzy just go tot the airport...they r willing to look u all over...LMAO.....they r very thorough!!

lol..not a bad idea!
Blank
1179332_tn?1297482590
LOL..They body scanned me not just once but TWICE and then I find out later that picture they see of you is you virtually naked!!! Thankfully I didn't find that out till after!!! Stupid...I forget on the way back to Canada to take out these bottles filled with juice and they pulled me to the side and I thought..oh no..they are going to lock me in a room or something!! Freaky but I made it into Canada ok!!

And no...I do not carry on my mother's tradition and send out Christmas cards... but I do hand them out to family when I see them and if I'm really good, I even put pics of the kids inside!!

Hope everyone is doing ok...Lizzy I can't believe that about the screw...totally unacceptable. I hope they figure it out soon!

Miss you guys...hopefully I will around more in the future!

Glad u made it home Carolyn....lol....

I am still waiting on my postage stamps...DH  always makes me wait...just like drs....lol....
Blank
620923_tn?1405964489
Ok...my Cards were mailed...one came back postage due..lol...DH tried...

I am still waiting on the tree....I am still working on gifts, and hope to start baking soon.

How is everyone else doing??
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
Cards sent, well most of them. Tree is up, gifts wrapped  and as for the baking well I will leave that to someone else, I tend to forget to turn on the oven lol.

Carolyn,I have been reading about this new scanning thing in the Airports, smacks of personal violation to me but I guess with all the terror threats in todays world it is a case of needs must

Ray.
Blank
1179332_tn?1297482590
Yeah Ray...that's the thing..I definitely feel better being on a plane that I know everyone has been checked. Mind you, I kept getting scanned and they were letting lots of other people just go through the metal detector...I guess I looked dangerous of something..LOL..However, when I was watching how they were doing the pat downs on TV, I was glad I went for the scan!!!

I have about 80% of my Christmas shopping done and that's about it!! I am working on getting a tree this weekend and pulling out the decorations. My middle son is really nagging on me to get it done so he can get in the spirit!! So I'm hoping I can do that for him.. Now it's off to his class Xmas party :)
