Family Stuff


Make sure you say a prayer for all the families in Missouri, Oklahoma, and all other States that have been so devastated with these Spring storms.  We had a scare last night in our neck of the woods, but it ended up being some straight-line winds and lots of rain.  Bloomington and Bedford, Indiana did get some serious damage, but no loss of life.  We are still getting rain today.  Our patio was destroyed.  The plants were all carried out in the yard.  One table I had on the patio was missing, and we didn’t find it till this afternoon on the other side of the park.  Our outside carpet was clear across the yard.  Right now it is pouring again.  My weather radio didn’t shut off, it was just one warning after another till 10:00pm last night.  I for one will be glad when all of this Spring weather is behind us.  I spent part of the evening at my son, Jon’s house.  He has a basement to get into.  The beautiful yellow lily my grandson and his wife got me for Mother’s day was also destroyed.

Here is the site for one of my followers trailer camper.  He has a very interesting site.  Pheba  has also joined us for the ride.  I couldn’t find a site for you.  If you have one, please let me know and I will add it here.  Another follower is ain’t for city gals. This amazing person revamps little RV’s and makes beautiful little homes out of them.  Check it out.  It is really interesting.

Like everyone else, I have been having trouble leaving comments.  I got a couple of tips about how to get around this, and so far it has worked.  Thanks for your tips.  You know who you are!! :)

I won’t bore you with my health situation anymore, but it is very puzzling to me that one day I feel fine and have all kinds of energy, and the next I have to drag this old body around all day.

I did manage to get the fridge defrosted and yesterday we cleaned the whole trailer and caught up all the laundry.  It feels good to have everything all done at once. We also got the windows washed one day last week.

Tuesday evening, Don and I, Herb and Willie, and Joe and Boots all went out to eat at Ponderosa.  We all ate from the buffet and had loads of fun talking and getting caught up with all the family stuff.  We later went back to Joe and Boot’s house to introduce them to Pegs and Jokers.  We had such a great time and now we are planning to do this  once a week.

I ran down to the Goodwill store a little while ago and bought a whole bag of toys for Rusty to destroy.  I got six toys for $1.82.  It won’t take him long to tear them up, but at least my Frugal side won’t hurt as bad, and it looked like they had a pretty big bunch of them.

We took Rusty to the vet’s office this morning and got some Frontline and heart pills for him.  He weighs a whopping 18 pounds now, and the Vet said he doesn’t think he will get much larger.  He thinks he will top out at well under 25 pounds.  He eats pretty good and seems to be healthy.  He is still really wild acting when someone comes to the RV, but were told that is just the puppy in him.

Later… :)

After three and a half years, Emma still goes wild when someone comes to the RV. Good luck with that! :) Where's the Dog Whisperer when you need him?

So much for your "homeyness" efforts. But I'm glad to hear that the damage wasn't worse. For now I guess you will have to take advantage of your good days and put up with your not-so-good days.

We live due west of where you are staying, so I know what you went through last evening. I'm glad that you have a safe place to go in these storms. Our weather radio has sure had a workout this spring. We are ultra-prepared now after we had a derecho go through here May 8, 2009, that caused major damage from the Mississippi to the Ohio. They started telling us this past Tuesday evening that we were a "9" on a 1 to 8 scale for the possibility of tornadoes on Wednesday, so everyone closed up shop early yesterday and hunkered down. Our community was very fortunate to receive only minor wind damage. Keep listening to that radio!

So glad you are safe, although sorry your patio goodies were all blown about. Better than you, for sure! Hopefully this comment will work, I keep trying. sigh

Glad to hear that you guys are safe and didn't loose much. Had to laugh about the toys for Rusty good idea.

Donna K said...

So sorry you had a bad weather night but glad you are safe. This spring weather is so very strange, not to mention dangerous.

Good buy on the toys for Rusty - I'll bet he appreciated that!
